I know a lot of kids have very wide feet which can cause difficulties with shoe shopping, but surely I can't be the only one with a kid who has very narrow (but long) feet?! What are the best brands for these feet? I got a pair of Livie&Luca shoes & Pediped shoes off babysteals and when they arrived I couldn't believe how wide they were! Length they're okay, and I can tighten them up to a certain extent but they still don't really fit IYKWIM? Anyone know what else to try?

I found Robeez tredz to be pretty narrow.  They were too narrow for my daughter's feet (and she had pretty normal (not wide) feet...

Keds tend to run narrow, and I have even bought slim width once.  I've also had luck with certain styles of Stride Rite--the line used to be called "Toddler Tech", and they seemed to run narrow.  But my narrow footed one is a girl--so that might not be all that helpful ;)  Otherwise, I would try Stride Rite's website in hopes they have narrow widths online that they don't carry in stores. I think New Balance sneakers also come in widths.

Thanks for the suggestions. I got quite excited about the Robeez, but from their website DS has already outgrown them - he's headed into size 9 for this summer. I have no idea if I can find Keds in Canada, I'll have to poke around. That leaves Stride Rites, sigh, which are about $50-60 a pair here (ouch!).

 

MaryElizabeth, does Tom's have shoes for kids too? The website I found only had mens' and womens' shoes.

Soft-Star shoes are my all time favorite shoe for DS right now.  They are handmade and come in narrow width. They are also made in the US with no plant based dyes, formaldehyde free leather and they even use green power.  They have vegan shoes too.    LOVE EM!!!
