Foot measuring guide

 

Step 1

The best way to measure your child’s foot is to draw around it. In order to do this have your child stand up a straight as possible on a hard even surface, with weight evenly distributed. Draw around each foot, it’s always best to measure both as one is usually bigger.

Step 2

Now that you have the template, we appreciate this may take some time, use a ruler to measure the distance between the heel and the big toe. Below is the conversion chart for the measurements. All shoe brands vary greatly in size and fit, regardless of the size written on the shoe it is not uncommon to go a size either way in different brands. Our chart below refers to Bobux shoes, please contact us for further information.

Step 3 FIT

All measurements include growing room so don’t be tempted to go up a size unless you are on the cusp of a larger size. They should fit snugly around the ankle and not slip when your child is walking. Growing room is usually about an inch, so the width of an adult thumb is a good gauge, press down on the toe to ensure there is adequate growing room. Don’t be alarmed when you can see this space in sandals, rather make sure your child can walk, skip and run happily.

We understand from first-hand experience that fitting a child’s shoe can be tricky and we want to make sure you get the best size and fit while ordering online. Please do not hesitate to contact us should you require further assistance.
