I’ve been buying shoes at Stride Rite since my six year old was old enough to need them. Both my boys have wide feet, and Stride Rite shoes are the only ones that don’t pinch their little toes.
The staff is great, very patient and knowledgeable, and willing to try on six different pairs of sneakers until your child finds the “perfect” pair. The shoes are expensive, I just spent $48 for sneakers for my almost two year old, but they’re worth it. They wear like iron, and fit much better than anything you can buy in Target.
