Toddlers with very wide feet? Help!

Postby megansmummy » Sat Jun 16, 2012 11:31 am

:wave:

Darcie is an H fitting in clarks and Im having a nightmare trying to get her shoes...the last pair i bought her were a pair of sandles in an H width and by the second week of the holiday I had to ditch them as they were making her toes curl over :-? I bought her some crocs as they are looser fitting (I wasnt happy about it at her age but I couldnt get anything else out there!).

Is there any brands that go wider than clarks? I had a right mare getting a pair of H width shoes from our local clarks and they had to order them for me :roll:

Not sure hun, but will watch with intetest. my ds is g/h and I find it impossible to get him feet in lots of shoes, wellies are impossible! my ds also has a high instep so adds to the width issue. x

Until recently, my dd has had v wide feet, Clarks don't work on her at all, start rite been better, and some of the European brands available at specialist kids shoe shops.

Startrite? My rienna was the same size width as darcie at that age and I sympathise as it was a nightmare getting shows to fit her. :-(

I don't do Clarks as both mine seem to have chubby feet with high arches. I go to an independant shop that does Startrite and lots of European brands. Our go to brand for dd is Geox - expensive but they fit her really well and last til she outgrows them. I hope you find something.

We ve had startrite too, the t bar ones have always fitted better. They re not always the prettiest shoes but they fit.
With dd1 we did have geox once too which were lovely but expensive.
We always used to go to a bigger shoe shop that have a range of makes to get a bigger choice. But they closed down :(
Good luck.

Stink is a 5H so I sympathise. We've just bought him some wellies from sainsburys. They are really roomy
