I have been looking for a child’s size 10.5 zero drop athletic shoe. My son is now starting sports and anything I can find that might work is too big! Do you have any suggestions? Thanks.

Hi, Heather,

Thank you for your question. It’s great that you’re looking out for the well-being of your son’s feet as he starts into sports participation. One brand you might consider is Splay Athletics:

I know that Altra, Luna, Vivobarefoot, and other footwear brands also have children’s options available.

Please do let us know if you have any additional questions.

Kind regards,
