I have a twelve month old son who has very chubby feet. Most baby shoes will not fit him. Does anyone have suggestions on brands that fit chubby feet. He wears a size 4.

My daughter had really fat feet when she was that age too.  Nothing fit on her feet-not width but height...lol...I always just had to take her in and try like 15 pairs before I could find one that fit.  There wasnt a specific one that was better than the others.  Even robeez slippers didn't fit.  They will get better by 18 months, or at least did for her.

Hi Ashli, My children are all grown now.  When they were small they wore Stride Rite shoes and now my grandchildren wear the same.  Hope this helps you.  Stride Rite shoes are made of good quality materials and they are stylish also.

Unless he's actually walking properly you don't have the need to by him proper shoes, booties are fine. My son has really chubby feet, or at least a high bridge. In the UK I shop at CLarks, not sure I can advise where you are.

my baby boy has chunky feet too his first pair were a pair of stride rite wide, but since he has had 2 pair of Nike wide and I like them very much! I usually find them in like Kholes, JC Pennys, or you can check the stride rite web site and it will tell you where they can be found near you.

We had to go to Stride Rite to find extra wide shoes for my son. They are more expensive, but they did fit! Luckily, after he started walking for awhile his feet slimmed down some. I also think he got used to wearing shoes and didn't scrunch up his toes. Good luck!

Both of my children wear Stride Rite.  Love them!  My son is 5 and he still wears their wide shoe and my daughter is 9 and I buy her a new pair of tennies each year for school.  Their shoes have always been very durable and well worth the price.  We have a store in our town that fits them and sells them which is very nice.

My daughter was the same way until she was almost 2! She wore Crocs all summer and Stride Rite shoes the rest of the year- those were the only shoes that would go on her puffy feet

My daughter has almost square feet. If she did need to go somewhere and needed shoes, we went with Robeez leather slipper shoes. They make boot styles now, too, and they come in generic brand from Target for cheaper. I think the brand is called Ministar.

I just discovered that LL Bean has great shoes for chubby feet. Our daughter has the same issue and we found that their tennis shoes work great since they have elastic across the top. Their sandals worked great too. We also found that crocs work and they last a long time even with growing feet. Good Luck!

Both my children had very high insteps and thick feet.  Personally I found Striderite was a wonderful shoe as long as you went with wides and extra wides.

Stride Rite, Pedipieds, Robie, or Pedoodles.  While still little, I preferred the soft sole leather shoes.

My 22 month old son also has wide feet. We've been successful with the Pediped shoes (the toddler version, not baby version which were a little too narrow) and Crocs.  For Crocs, you'll want to find a Crocs store or the website (http://www.crocs.com/), as they have lots of styles that aren't available in regular stores.  Good luck!

my daughter had chubby feet when she was little and i found that start rite or clarks as he could order the size you needed although you had to wait for the delivery and some stores have you pay a deposit which you lose if the shoes dont fit and they need sending back i still find now they done cater for wide feet in children

My son also has wide feet and I have found that the Mickey mouse shoes at sears work perfectly for him!

Hi, best place to get shoes from are Clarks as they measure the width of your childs foot as well as the length, there pricey but worth every penny.

Best if you dont put shoes on him. Let him run around without slippers pull on ones are good for them.



Also roomy ankle boots are best for them. Clarks do a good line in wider feet for babys



Bit expensive though.



. When my son went through a time when feet were bigger I put fancy wellies on him. He loved them and walked everywhere. They cant damage their little feet.

Stride Rite has wide, extra wide, extra extra wide, etc... I suggest either going on their website or finding their local store. My son has extra wide feet, so it hasn't been easy for me either.
