Size Guide


I am totally aware that picking the right shoe size for your child is not an easy task, especially when their feet have not been measured yet.

But I also don’t believe in offering shoe sizes by age unless bought as a gift (find gift size chard below). Every child is different and it is more or less impossible to guess what size they will be wearing at a certain age.

Don’t worry, you will not have to take your child to get their feet measured. You can all do in the comfort of your own home. I know it is not an easy task as they like wiggling around but I promise it will work. 

Babies/Children who are not able to stand and walk:

I personally think the best way of measuring a baby’s feet is when they are laid down and relaxed.  Make sure they are wearing socks and their toes are not curled in (they love doing that). Use a measuring tape or a ruler and measure from longest toe to heel in centimeter. Every millimeter counts. Please measure both feet as the size of each foot can differ. Then refer to my size chart below in order to add growing room and pick the best size.

Children who are able to stand and walk:

There are two ways of measuring their feet at home. It is best to see which option the child prefers.

Option 1: Draw around their feet

Put a piece of paper on the floor and draw around their feet. Make sure they are wearing socks and their toes are not led up (they love doing that). Once completed, measure from longest toe to heel in centimeter by using the drawing. Every millimeter counts. Please measure both feet as the size of each foot can differ. Then refer to my size chart below in order to add growing room and pick the best size.

OR

Option 2: Measure feet against the wall

Put a piece of paper (which will need to be lined up with the wall) on the floor. Let the child stand on the piece of paper with their heels against the wall. Mark the longest toe on the paper. Make sure they are wearing socks and their toes are not curled up (they love doing that) when you measure them. Once completed, measure in a straight line from longest toe (mark on the paper) to heel (side of the paper which was placed against the wall) in centimeter. Every millimeter counts. Please measure both feet as the size of each foot can differ. Then refer to my size chard below in order to add growing room and pick the best size.

What size will I need to order?

Once you have measured your child’s feet you will have to add between 0.7 cm and 1 cm to the measured length and refer to below chart. This will allow your child to grow into the shoe rather than outgrowing them very quickly.

Example: Tommy’s foot was measured as 12.8 cm. By adding 1 cm the total length will be 13.8 cm. The perfect size for Tommy would be UK size 5 / Euro size 22.

What size to chose if you buy shoes as a gift?

As mentioned above I usually don't recommend buying shoes by age unless they are bought as a gift. If you would like to purchase a pair of shoes as a gift please refer to this chart:
