Best shoe for wide feet!
on November 12, 2012
New Balance shoes are the only shoes we've found so far that work for our son's double wide feet. Stride Rite has shoes that will fit, but we're able to get more affordable shoes (and "cooler" looking ones, too) by ordering New Balance through Amazon.
The ONLY thing I don't love about this shoe is the laces. From the pictures, it looks like it might have those elastic stretchy laces that don't actually require tying, but I was disappointed to learn (upon receiving) that is not the case. These have legit shoe laces. Shoe laces are a pain with a child this age (3). He's unable to tie them himself (or untie them, for that matter) and he's tripped on them once and fell pretty hard while doing so.
I feel like this is my own problem and not the shoes, so I'm only taking one star off because of it...but if you're looking for shoes for your toddler and have the choice, choose velcro!
