I'm looking for some new shoes for DS, who is almost 2 1/2. He's been wearing Pedipeds, but they aren't wide enough now that we are getting into bigger sizes. I'm looking for something with a flexible sole that comes in WIDE. I have a pair of hand-me-down stride rites in wide that aren't wide enough. Any suggestions???

I haven't purchased from them myself, but I've seen them mentioned before on Mothering. You may want to check out <a href="http://preschoolians.com/preschoolians-and-width---1045" target="_blank">Preschoolians</a>. GL!

We LOVE Livie and Luca's!!! They are flexible, wide AND durable (not to mention adorable). Although thay are a little pricey, I find that in the end they are a totally worthwhile investment.

See Kia Run and Preschoolians are not wide enough for us. We get xw or 2xw from Stride right depending on the shoe. I recommend you get measured I have 2 pair I had to return ( one SKR and on Prescoolian) because they just arent wide enough. My kids feed look square till they are about 4 then they get some what normal looking <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/orngbiggrin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="orange big grin">

Soft star shoes will make shoes as wide as you need and have very flexible soles. they have sizing info on their websitre, but you can send in you kid's measurements and they will custom make them for you. and you can even design your own colour combos and whatnot. We've had a couple pairs and they hold up very very well (compared to SKR at least).

This is a japanese shoe company that I believe is modeling themselves after Stride-Rite. But, they are way cuter IMO.<br><br>
I bought a pair from <a href="http://www.shoes.com/Shopping/Results.aspx?icid=acoff&N=0+6210&Ntk=SearchInterface&Ntt=TSUKIHOSHI+&Ntx=mode%2Bmatchallany&Nty=1" target="_blank">Shoes.com/tsukihoshi</a><br><br>
They are awesome. Reviews said they were quite wide for those concerned. I don't think DD's feet are that wide, so I really can't comment. But, they are so cute and well-made. And, they are flexible.

We are also Livie and Luca fans here. They are pricey, but if you do Swagbucks, you can use the amazon gift cards you earn for them, which helps a lot! (endless.com is a sister site to amazon that sells shoes) You can get on the L&L website and print off the free sizing thing and have your LO stand on it, to see if they would be wide enough.

Stride rite makes an extra wide shoe, too. I've found them at Marshall's and an outlet store for about half the price that the "official" Stride rite store charges. It's very expensive having a toddler with a "specialty" foot!
