Children’s Shoe Fit Guide

Unfortunately there is no worldwide standard for shoe sizes, which means you may require different sizes of shoe from different manufacturers.

Brands usually have slight variations in size. Some might fit a little bigger while some run smaller.

This is a general guideline for the brands of stylish European children’s shoes we carry. Please call (516) 295-0026 or email for individual questions.

Alternatively, you can trace you child's foot and fax / send it back to us. Our expert fitters will help you find the correct size for the shoe you want.

Children’s Shoe Durability

On average, a child's shoe will last for about 4-5 months. Sometimes children may wear out the shoe or a growth spurt may occur and they simply outgrow the shoe. Although children's shoes are usually made to be more durable than adult shoes, keep in mind that some children are even tougher.

What to Look For in a Children’s Shoe

First walkers require a very flexible sole, with some room for growth. Too much room will cause blisters, and tight fits will cause redness and chafing.

To ensure an accurate reading when measuring, flatten the foot by shifting your weight forward.

If the measurement is between two sizes, always move up to the larger size.

Be sure to measure both feet. Many kids have feet of different sizes. Fit to the larger of the two.

Fit when your child has been on his/her feet all day because their feet have expanded.
