Can anyone recommend supportive girl's sandals, not Birkenstocks or Clarks?

Saltwater are great, really comfy and come in lots of colours. My DD has silver.

My Dd wears Birkenstocks mostly now and they can be dressed up or down.

Yes, Timberland. Shame really, If this had been last year, I could have sent you Dd's pair of size 13 Timberlands sad bad timing.

DD has had a few pairs of the Vivo Barefoot and says they are very very comfy.

I'm after something similar for dd except she is size 2. Most are not wide enough. She loves her converse but they arnt supportive & sometimes arnt appropriate to wear.

She basically has converse, trainers & school shoes. Nothing dressy at all.

I would suggest Salt Water sandals. Traditional yet funky looking and practical.

Not tried them myself but I know a few parents/kids who have them and are v happy. Just bought rootys for dd1s school shoes - they're short and wide so it may be best to get fitted in a shop or buy a couple of sizes online then return

Thanks for the replies. I'm having a look at the suggestions.

She has a sensory processing disorder so things like comfortable footwear are a big deal.

rum I've been looking at the Vivibarefoot ones. They look good. Have you tried them?

Vivobarefoot water shoes? Have a look at happylittlesoles for barefoot shoes, might be less choice in her size tho

Campers are cute. Saltwaters are good too

At the end of my tether with dd and her feet! She would prefer to be barefoot but of course that's not always possible.

I live in Birkenstocks and thought they would be perfect but she doesn't think so although she likes the style of straps and colours.

She has never been comfortable in Clarks.

I can't even think of any brands to look at. I need something for her for everyday wear til the end of the summer.

She wears a kids size 12. Thanks
