Good first shoes for narrow feet?

My dd (14.5months) finally found her feet a few weeks ago after cruising since 8months! However she's gone from wobbly steps to confident walking very quickly. I've been keeping her barefoot at home, but we need some shoes for outdoors. Took her to be measured locally today, and turns out she has tiny narrow feet (approx infant size 3e). After searching in 3 shops we got one lovely pediped pair which she is very comfortable in. Only one pair were available, in white. I'd love a more practical pair for nursery- does anyone have suggestions for brands suited to narrow feet so I can find the nearest stockists and maybe call ahead?

Clark's do that size but don't know if they are any good. My dd also has narrow feet but not walking yet so watching with interest!

Bobux are narrower than Pediped and work well for my dd2 who has narrow, tiny feet and high arches.

Happy Little Soles stocks them and also has a function that allows you to find narrow shoes.

My dd is now 13 and has always had very narrow feet. Her feet are now size 5 and its just getting harder! Thank goodness for dainty converse. Have spent two days trying to get school shoes that fit and are considered acceptable! Still no joy. Its a long time ago so things may have changed but when dd was little Ricosta and Agatha dela Prada were good.

Maybe I should get a selection from happy little soles, assuming they allow me returns. Was hoping to get it in store to try them. She's taking after me with tiny narrow feet, I'm only size 3.5 in adult shoes.

My son's first pair was from startrite... 3.5 E.

Primigi shoes are good for narrow feet, both my dds have worn them. They're beautiful shoes, but not easy to find. We got ours from independent shoe shops. You can buy them online if you know her size though, but obviously it's always best to try shoes on.

OP Happy Little Soles will send you a selection and you can return the ones you don't want. I've found their advice to be very good though, and rarely need to return stuff.

Bobux are narrow but I found their soles very stiff, even though they say ultra flexible on the website. We went for startrite soft soles. They come in a narrow fit too.

It depends which Bobux, ime. They have different ranges. Dd2's current ones are pretty bendy.

Thanks all, I've e-mailed happy little soles there!

Managed to get dd school shoes today! Primigi, so they are worth a try.

E isn't that narrow. Try startrite.

Primigi for narrow.

Ricista is for wide
