Children are active. They are playing all day long (or at least most of it). That is why they need good shoes - that fit well!
Because children's feet are growing fast, many children do wear too small shoes (or too large shoes - to make the shoes last longer). This is not good. Shoes should always fit well (or be slightly to large), otherwise foot health issues may occur. That is to be taken serious!
We will help you determine the right shoe size with our Child's Shoe Size Chart below. Happy shoe shopping!
How to Use Child's Shoe Size Chart?
First: See our useful How to Measure Foot Size-guide. Then: Use your measurements to determine your shoe size with our Shoe Size Chart below. Remember that shoe sizes may vary between different shoe manufacturers. But the size chart found on this page will work with most shoes.
Here are some tips & tricks that can make the shoe shopping easier:
-Always shop for shoes (or measure the feet) later in the day! The feet will actually swell during the day.
-Always shop children's shoes with a fastening system (laces or velcro). Then you are able to "fine-tune" the fit of the shoes, meaning you can adjust them to perfectly fit the feet. Remember that young children can't manage to tie shoelaces themselves. Beacause of this, velcro is often the best solution until they can tie the laces themselves.
