Favourite shoes for fat feet!

DS wears Robeez right now. He is starting to walk and I would love to get him something with a bit thicker sole for when we are outside. I was looking at pedipeds but there is nowhere that sells them locally I have tried some shoes on him in the store and nothing seems to fit properly. His feet are pretty long but fat so it makes it difficult to get the shoes on. Any suggestions?

My DS has always had HUGE feet (XXW), and up until about 6 months ago, the only place we could buy him shoes that fit was Stride Rite. Even now, it's rare to find them anywhere else, but I've come across a couple of things. To date he's only had one pair of shoes and/or one pair of sandals at a time because we just can't afford more than that.

I totally agree!!! We went through several pair of shoes, trying to get one fit right...or trying to get them on Landon period and it all just ended in much frustration. When we could get shoes on him, after half a day he'd be screaming to have them off. He also tends to walk on the inside of his feet and ankles so I wanted a little more support than soft soles. Anyhow we finally took him to stride rite (thanks to Grammy!!) and they put him in an extra wide shoe...after that his feet went into the shoes like slicing hot butter. The soles are very flexible and comfy as well. We haven't had a problem with shoes since then. They are pricey...but like for his second pair of shoes I found a good deal on ebay for the next 1/2 size up, extra wide.

We love Stride Rite shoes for wide feet. The best deals are at the outlets.
