Shoe Chart and Sizing Tips

Tips to ensure the correct shoe fit:

Here are some tested and approved ways to confirm a perfect shoe fit for you little one.

The Toe Test:

The longest toe should be between the width of your pinkie and the width of your thumb from the tip of the shoe. Any longer than that and they might trip; any less than that and they might be too tight. (Little feet outgrow them fast).

This will also depend on the type of shoe, as materials vary. The bottom line is that you want to make sure your baby's foot length isn't restricted by their new shoes.

Test for Width

Pinkie test

Slide your pinkie between your baby's heel and the back of the shoe. Your finger should fit without extra room for the best fit.

Choosing the correct size of baby shoes for your little one's feet can be challenging. Here are 4 simple steps to find the perfect shoes for your little one:

1. Measure your baby's feet with a ruler

2. Leave a little extra room for your baby’s feet to grow into their new shoes

3. Select the perfect size baby shoes for your little one

4. Once you have the shoes, confirm they fit with the "toe test"

Finding the right shoe size ensures comfort and promotes healthy foot development.

Common Shoe sizing mistakes to avoid:

Hand me downs:

Shoes mould to the wearers foot through use. Hand me down shoes will have moulded to the original wears foot which could cause irritation and incorrect weight distribution and balance while walking.

Foot checks:

Infrequent foot checks may miss when your little one has outgrown their shoes. Your baby’s shoes should appear comfortable; you shouldn't see any marks on your child's feet. Hobbling or rubbing on the feet indicate the need for new shoes. Little feet grow quickly regular checking is vital

Go up not down:

If your baby is in between sizes go up. A little extra room in shoes is far better than shoes that are too tight.
