Before You Put On Your Sidekicks Shoes, Check the Laces of Your Other Shoes

Warm lace up shoes and winter boots have been the fashion favorite with you stylish Sidekicks fans. And is it any wonder with the weather this year? If you want to look fabulous and keep your feet warm and dry over the last bit of winter, lace up shoes fit so many occasions.

One question you may never have asked yourself while you are stepping out of your winter wear and into your sensational sidekicks shoes is: are you tying the laces of your winter shoes properly? According to this recent news story, many of us are not right.

Luckily, the news story How to Tie Your Shoes (And how to lace them while you’re at it. Because you’ve been doing it wrong.) does more than merely make us feel bad about our shoelace tying skills. It also provides instructions on how to tie a knot that will not come undone until we are ready to kick off those winter boots and slip our feet into oh so comfy Side Kick shoes. That could turn out to be awesomely useful advice if it saves a few of you side kicks fans from tripping over a bootlace that has accidentally come undone this winter.

Size Charts

Sizes for Fitkicks shoes and Sidekicks shoes are set by the manufacturers.  Here are their published size recommendations:

 

sizes for fitkicks shoes and sidekicks shoes

 

There are no other sizes of authentic Fitkicks shoes and Sidekicks shoes, though you may see them listed in other marketplaces with different size equivalents.  Those changes are usually made by the retailer and represent their opinions.

CC Sidewalk prefers to list the manufacturers’ size recommendations as the standard.  But we do offer our own opinions.

Sizes for Fitkicks Shoes

The Fit kicks shoe upper is mostly spandex and quite stretchy.  However, the toe patch is microfiber and does not stretch much.  We recommend one size larger if you are near the top of a size bracket, and definitely the larger size if you are in-between.  The ankle opening is high on the foot.  The shoes are true to size as long as your feet and ankles are pretty much average (aka medium).  If they are wider, thicker, sensitive to tightness in the toes, or otherwise have a disease process such as diabetes, then choose one size larger.  The larger size will not be loose or floppy.

Sizes for Sidekicks Shoes

The Sidekicks shoes are meant to cover a larger size range, and the upper openings are elastic with reasonable stretch.  The Energy/Glitter line offers the most stretchable uppers, followed by Original and Animal.  The Patent line is pretty stiff and does not stretch much at all.  If your feet are wider, thicker, sensitive to tightness in the toes, or otherwise have a disease process such as diabetes, then choose one size larger.  The larger size may be a little bit loose.
