Children grow so quickly! So check that they are wearing the right size footwear every few months. I try to remember to check at each change of season - for simplicity.
The ideal shoe fit has about a fingers width (or thumb width) of "wriggle" room between the big toe and the end of the shoe. I call this the "rule of thumb".
If you have measured your child's feet, add 5mm to 10mm for baby shoes and 8mm to 12mm for toddler/kids shoes to your measurement to allow for wiggle room and room to grow. If your child's foot falls in-between our sizes, I suggest that you select the larger size.
If you are buying shoes for the next season, or to give as a gift it might be handy to know how quickly, on average, children's feet grow.
- Between the ages of one and three, children's feet can be expected to grow as much as 1.5 mm in length per month.
- Between the ages of three and six, children's feet grow an average of 1 mm per month in length.
