Size Guide for Shoes and Socks
How to determine Shoe Size
At Home foot measuring
1. Determine the Length
We find this method more accurate in determining the length of your child's foot in comparison to tracing your child's foot.
3. Size recommendations
We suggest to allow 1/2 to 3/4" room for growth for most shoes, depending on the style of the shoe and age of the child. For example, slip on style shoes, since there is no strap around the ankle to keep the heel seated in the back of the shoe, we might not recommend as much room for growth to help with reducing heel slippage.
Once you have taken your child's foot measurements and you wish to order shoes on-line, please contact us and we will help you determine the right size for your child before placing your order. We will even measure the inside of the shoe and compare to your child's measurement.
If using the Brand's size chart, use this as a guide only. We find that these measurements are not always exact. Some brands will have a "general" size guide, but each of their styles can vary in how they fit and measure.
Take the longest foot measurement and use the Brand's Size Guide to help determine the correct size. Take note if the sizing guide is the actual length, then you will need to add room for growth when picking the correct size.
Shoe Size Options on our Website
We use US (North American) sizing on our website. If the shoe is sized in UK or EU sizing, this size might be added in brackets beside the US sizing.
Shoes sizes/fit recommendations can vary depending on the style and manufacturer.
