Sidekicks Shoes in Your Purse: Even High Heel Newbies Can Walk Tall

by Carol Cox January 01, 2016

For many of you Sidekicks fans, walking in the highest of high heeled shoes comes as second nature. If you are super experienced at walking in heels, it is easy to forget that it takes practice to look so completely poised and effortless. And, of course, it helps to know that you have a stylish yet comfortable pair of sidekicks shoes in your purse that you can change into when your tootsies need a rest.

People who are new to wearing high heeled shoes, or anyone who feels they never really got the hang of walking in heels, should discover the comfort of having a pair of side kick shoes stashed in their purses. Do not worry, someday you too will look and feel as confident and elegant as those who have already perfected their high heeled sashay.

Even the Stars Need their Sidekicks Shoes

It is reassuring to know that even some celebrities lack confidence when it comes to their high heel game. One who might prefer to forget about high heels altogether and wear a cute pair of folding ballet flats all the time is Australian actress and comedian Rebel Wilson.

On the Ellen DeGeneres show recently, the star admitted that even though she is now an up and coming fashion designer, she struggles to walk in high heels. Naturally, Ellen put her to the test and Rebel found herself faced with the challenge of an obstacle course which she had to undertake in a fabulous pair of silver heels - while carrying a Martini! Rebel was not kidding about finding it difficult to walk in high heels. When we watched the video, we hoped someone would take pity on her and let her complete the course in a pair of Silver Energy side kick shoes instead. Rebel can be proud of herself though: she completed the course and raised $10 000 for a school in Tanzania.

If you, like Rebel, ever find walking in high heels tricky, knowing that you have a pair of Sidekicks shoes handy can do wonders for your confidence. Available in a ton of colors, one is right for you.

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.
