How To Measure Children’s Feet At Home

Before you start, make sure you follow these simple guidelines first:

  • It is advisable to measure your childs feet later in the day, preferably in the evening. This is because the foot expands throughout the day
  • Ensure your little one is wearing socks, since they are most likely going to be wearing socks when they wear their shoes.
  • Get all your tools ready for action, you will need the following:

A flat surface

Paper

Pencil

A measuring tape or ruler

The vast majority of kids will go up one size at a time, so look at what  their last size was, brands do make a difference, if you are getting wildly different sizes don't panic and give us a ring!

Now for the fun part

  • Ask your little one to stand one foot on the paper
  • Draw around your child’s foot keeping the pencil as upright as possible all the way around. Repeat with the other foot.
  • If your child is wriggly, the most important marks to ensure you capture are; the heel and the end of the longest toe.
  • Make sure you measure each foot separately, as many children will have one foot slightly bigger than the other.
  • Measure from the middle of the heel to the end of the longest toe on each foot and make a note of the measurement in centimeters.
  • Aim to add no more than 0.5cm growing room onto your child’s foot measurement - the actual measurements have been quite spot on to date  

Shoe Size Chart

Once you have the measurements use the below shoe size chart to determine your shoe size. 

If your measurement is between two values in the chart we recommend that you round-up to the closest value.

If you require assistance at all in measuring or need more information on shoe sizes, please contact us and we will help you and guide you through things, particularly if any issues surrounding width- super skinny etc.
