My son wears orthotics (AFOs) and these shoes are one of the few that fit over his orthotics. Good quality. Our last pair was used daily for a year and they are in great condition still.

My son loves these shoes. They fit true to size and are perfect for school. Great for all different sock thicknesses to accommodate warmer or cooler weather. This is our sixth pair of this style since he was 4 and now he is 7!

These are awesome. Bought on recommendation of my three year olds physical therapist. We put his orthotics in here to give even more support. Finally. A shoe that fits a child with thick wide feet. Got several sizes and had him try all on. These will be our go to shoes from here on out.

It's very hard to find wide width shoes for kids who have outgrown their toddler stage but since their feet are still growing, it's important put their feet in shoes that fit properly. New Balance makes the most stylish sneakers for young kids. My grandson will wear their sneakers even though he would love to squeeze his feet into some other brand.

I really like these shoes. My son has always worn Stride Rite but we ran out of options for his size and didn't want a shoe that he's already had, so it was time to start shopping around. These shoes fit great and are not too stiff.

This is the perfect sneaker for my 6 year old. This is actually our 2nd pair we purchased, as he outgrew the first. The first pair we bought at a local children's shoe shop (after trying on a dozen others). I was happy to find them on Zappos in his next size up. They come in wide widths which is great for those that like a little extra wiggle room without having the shoe flop off your feet. The shoes held up nicely even after a year of wearing them almost every day.

My 7 year-old daughter loves these shoes. She has a wide foot and it is often difficult to find comfortable shoes. These are her 'go to' pair. They are light (she runs...doesn't walk) and easy to get on and off. The Velcro closure is holding up nicely as is the shoe itself. Only have great things to say about this shoe.

I have purchased many pairs of kids sneakers and have been satisfied with each purchase. I had only one problem with a purchase and Zappos responded immediately to my concern, and resolved the problem by replacing the problem item with an identical new item. I strongly support Zappos products, shipping and problem resolution.

I have gotten these several times for my son. They are cute and don't fall apart despite a 4 year old abusing them. The only thing is, they are not wide enough for a regular foot. The strap won't reach - and my sons feet aren't exactly wide. He's a regular with everything except these. So maybe get wider for your first lair to make sure they stay strapped and Velcro stays closed.

These are great shoes! They are sturdy, hold up well, and hide stains. The only issue I have with these is they are difficult to strap over the Velcro, it seems for the wide shoes the strap needs to be a little longer.

This is our second pair. They hold up very well and the Velcro makes them so easy to get on. However, this second pair seems to have an extra thick tongue which is making it hard to reach the Velcro strip around to the other side. I'm hoping the tongue will squish down with time. We actually ordered 2 more pairs ( gray and black) and they both have this extra thick tongue problem. But other than that it is a great shoe.

These sneakers are the greatest! Both my 2 and 5 year old boys have them. Wear them every day. Hold up very well to rough wear and the support that their feet get is excellent. These sneakers even stay on my little guy's chubby feet. He doesn't pull them right off. Definitely recommend them!

It is really hard to find shoes that fit my 5 year old son because of his thick feet (a little wide and just thick such that slip-ons have always been a problem). These shoes have been really great however! I've typically gotten him Converse in the past, but wanted more support in the sole. These look cool, are super easy to get on and off, and my son says they are very comfortable. I'm very pleased!

My kid loves the shoes. He's 6 1/2 years old boy. Shoe is easy to get on and off. He plays outside 2-3 hours a day. The shoes are good for indoor or outdoors. They scuff up rather quickly but have held together after 2 months.

Great sneakers for kids with wide feet. It's so hard to find wide width shoes that aren't flashy, or multi-colored. These fit the bill with the "retro" look. They last far longer than it takes for my son to grow out of them. This is our 8th pair! I only wish they came in more (solid) colors.

Great shoe for the little guys. Easy for the kids to put on and secure by themselves. Very durable shoe. Fit is pretty true to size...if anything they fit a touch big but that is good for growing kids!

These shoes are great, we are on our second pair. These shoes look great, fit perfect, and he doesn't have any trouble running, jumping, or scrambling out of the way of a laser (yes, he is 3). Great shoes.

These shoes are the best! They are lightweight, easy to get on and off, and the velcro works great. The do wear out fast if your kid plays rough though. I wish they were a little cheaper. This is my second pair I've bought for my 3 year old. He has really extra wide feet and New Balance seems to make the best wide shoes.

They are a great fit for the active toddler in my family. The width is perfect and they take a good beating on a daily basis. The only thing I would change about the shoes is the strap that goes across the top. These shoes are designed for wide feet, but the strap is not too forgiving for the width on the top. If you are ok with the strap not closing completely, then it is not a problem. Honestly, it is more for looks than anything else. But the truth is that this is our second pair. He loved and grew out of the first.

Love these! Have 2 boys and after getting this pair for one of my boys, I ordered a pair in my other son's size. They seem pretty true to size and they are easy on/off and hold up very well. I've washed one pair a couple times and they look good as new.
