Great find for kid with Big Feet,
When your 12 year old has size 18 feet, shoes are hard to find. Got these for less than usual retail price. Shoes are heavy and have a lot of padding like most skate shoes, but we were very pleased to find skate shoes in his size. His feet are still growing, and we wouldn't be surprised to see our son with a size 25 shoe size before he's done, but he's only 5 foot 5, and still growing, and maybe DC will make these in a size 25 eventually. Anyway, great deal here. Thanks again Amazon.

It is strange to hear that I am not the only parent with the issue of finding size 18 shoes for my 12 year old!! He is only comfortable in skate shoes, I'm guessing because of the padding and support he gets in them, unfortunately for me they are VERY hard to find and tend to be expensive, especially when he grows out of them after less than 3 months of wear! If anyone can help with suggestions it is greatly appreciated, clothing shoes and the hardest thing to find so far..............SOCKS!!! Did I mention he is already 6' 4", and not done growing?!?!? Oddballshoes - if you can't find what you are looking for on Amazon for big shoe sizes, you might try there.

Ha ha. I'm not alone after all! I posted the original review here and our son is now still 12 but is wearing size 19-20 shoes. I wish you well searching for clothes. Our son is only about 5 foot 7 now but hopefully will grow taller. We had some luck with skate shoes on zappos as well but are running out of luck. We got some DC shoes in a size 20 from the company but may not find that size again.

You asked for a picture of my son's feet, so here it is, compared to mine. You may notice the difference!

Yes, our son wore a size 20 shoe at the time of this review, at 12 years old and 5 foot 7 inches tall. Yes, it was freaky to us, too, but he's proud of his big feet. Just as long as we can find shoes for him I don't care how much his feet grow. Right now he's almost 6 feet tall and wears a size 23 shoe.

Wow! Incredible! Is that genetics ie do others in your extended family have such large feet? If not then I'd say something in the modern food chain is responsible. And they say all the growth hormones in our beef/chicken supply are safe!
What a good looking & strapping young man! You should be proud! How tall is he today? Certainly well over 6 ft by now? I'm having a hard time finding shoes for my 14 yr old size 18 nephew! I usually have good luck at bigshoes dot com but can never seem to find anything for less than a $100. It definitely makes bargain hunting a problem as the larger sizes always come with a significant premium! Urgh! I was able to get a pair of size 18 in this style from Amazon for $56 so I'm ecstatic. These should last him about 3 months until his foot grows again! lol

Thanks for the compliment on our son. He's 6'6" now so growing into those feet finally. It does run in the family but he's taken it to a new level. He's almost 14 now. I have had some shoes made by gracious companies, but I also sometimes find them online. One place I go to is 6pm.com they have a good selection of large size shoes and very good sale prices. Our son has some dress shoes and casual shoes that we ordered there in size 24 and 25. We are using a shoe stretcher and so far so good. Bless his heart, he's still proud of his feet and not bummed about the size of them. Good luck!
