XWIDE can only be made in child sizes 4–12 and is not available in baby sizes 2 or 3. The XWIDE option will only appear in the width dropdown menu above if an eligible shoe size is selected.
Many parents struggle to find shoes wide enough for their children. For the majority of these cases, our standard wide width will be enough, as it is already wider than most other shoes. However, a small percentage of our customers have children who experience a toddler growth phase with extra chunky feet. We call them "potato feet" in our workshop, and they usually even out after a few years. In addition to being wide, these children's feet often have unusually high insteps that make it difficult to even get their feet inside most shoes. Our XWIDE width option was designed specifically for this situation.
If you are unsure whether or not your child's feed are wide enough for XWIDE shoes, then we encourage you to contact our customer service team. They will ask you to provide specific measurements to determine which width will be the best fit for your child.
We can only make XWIDE shoes in certain styles. Due to the extra labor and materials involved in making an XWIDE shoe, selecting this width incurs a $10 surcharge.
