How To Choose The Right Shoe Size For Growing Kids?

Choosing the right shoe size for your child can sometimes be a challenge. With children growing in the blink of an eye, we want to make sure their feet have the right support and space to develop in a healthy way. In this blog post, we'll give you some helpful tips to help you find the perfect fit for your little ones.

1. Measure Regularly:

Children's feet grow quickly. That is why it is important to measure them regularly - at least once every three months. Make it a fun activity to measure your child's feet at home, or take them to a children's shoe store where expert staff can take the measurements.

2. Look at the Signals:

Watch for signs that your child has outgrown their shoes. If they complain of pain in their feet, difficulty walking, or you see blisters or red spots, it's probably time to go up a size.

3. Don't Forget the Grow Room:

Always provide some extra space in the toe of the shoe. A good rule of thumb is to leave a half to an inch of space from the longest toe to the tip of the shoe. This gives your child's foot room to grow and move without restrictions.

4. The Right Fit:

A good fit is not just a matter of length. Also pay attention to the width of the shoe. Your child's foot should not be trapped, but the shoe should also not be so loose that the foot slides into it.


A well-fitting shoe is essential for your child's foot development and overall comfort. By measuring regularly and paying attention to the fit, you ensure that your child always wears the right shoes. Check out our latest collection of children's shoes in different sizes and styles in our shop.
