    Footstops in Pottinger Street will measure their feet. It's about the only place in Hong Kong where you'll get a width fitting as well as the length.

    Footstop on Pottinger St. is excellent. Better service than in the States. They will only sell you shoes that fit properly. The owner is a podiatrist, staff is terrific with kids.

    No, I don't think Dr. Kong do width fitting.

    But I saw this machine (at Dr.Kong) where they can check whether or not your child has arched or flat foot and thought that it's something to consider as well.

    thanks everyone - I got to Pottinger street but managed not to be able to find it! I am glad the owner is a podiatrist - that gives me a lot of reassurance. Next stop, footstop, I guess!
