An F is a wide fitting so it your DS has narrow feet they wouldn't be much use.
I thought that startrite did narrow fittings?
DS usually wears and F or G as has my wide feet but just got him startrite tumbles and it was an E fitting that fitted him so they must be EXTRA wide! What about sandles with velcro adjusters so you can make them more norrow?
Startrite only do f and wider fittings in sandals. dd has same problems but a few years ago we had a pair of Clarks Doodles sandals - the ones with fabric straps for about £14 - which came up ok even thoguh we don't normally shop there for her. Last year she had a pair from TK Maxx of a European brand Primigi. Timberland sandals come up narrow too.
hi i work for an independent shoe shop and am start-rite trained, c, d and e fittings are now, f is normal and g and h are wide. start-rite do width fittings in certain style of sandals but must shops tend to only get in f width fittings but should be able to order in a different width (as start-rite warehouse is uk based you can order all year round) other makes that suit narrow feet are petasil and sure fit.
