 Kids Hiking Boots
I was wondering if anyone has ever seen a kids hiking boot in a wide width. My nephew needs wide shoes and I want to get him some hiking boots or hiking shoes for his birthday. Something that will give his foot a bit more support then a regular sneaker. I thought I had found a brand that did wide earlier in the year. Alas now I can't find them again. Boo Hiss!

Thanks!

How small the feets?
These apparently can be had down to Men's 7:

Some of these go down to that size too ...

He is currently a size 4. He is only 10. Wondering if I can do a bit bigger shoe and put an insole in there.. Dunno. Might take him over to a few stores and have him try stuff on. I will check out those sites.

Here's another link with a good variety. I wouldn't go too big. It could cause blistering.

Great link! I don't think I have played on the Zappos site before!
I was able to do wide, boys boots! :o

This might just make my day.

Have you ordered from them before?

Bought a pair of winter hikers a couple of years ago. No problems at all.

Awesome! Just got the thumbs up from the nephews dad so I ordered them. It was highly suggested that I include a few Hike with Auntie coupons. I like that idea.

I need to do our trip report, but this kid has enthusiasm! He is so excited he follows right behind you. He could step on you he is so close. We just sent him ahead so he would run off then wait and so forth. Saturday was his first 4K. Couldn't be more proud of him and his brother.

He will be SO excited to get real hiking boots!
