The New Balance 630 sneakers provide the best arch support for kids, according to Good Housekeeping. However, Russell Volpe, the podiatrist evaluating the arch support of several brands of sneakers for the magazine, thought the New Balance arch support could stand to have a little more give.
Saucony sneakers, which are actually designed to battle various foot problems, also ranked highly for arch support. Brooks Defyance sneakers provide good arch support and are easily washable, making them appropriate for use by kids. While Puma Easy Riders provide good arch support, they can be hard to find in stores and may be most easily found online.
