I review children’s shoes based on my vast experience from fitting children’s shoes for the last 10 years. I currently work for a specialized children’s shoe store that focuses on children with foot and leg problems.
Take a look at the description that describes how each particular shoe style fits (short, long) in order to increase the chances that you order the correct shoe size. As a standard rule of thumb, I recommend 3/16 of an inch or 0.4 centimeters of space between your toddler’s longest toe and the end of the shoes.
Find Out Your Child’s Exact Foot Length and Width
If you are unsure of what your toddler foot size is take a look at an article I created where I describe how to figure out your toddler’s foot size from home:
If you need any other type of shoes such as everyday sneakers, summer sandals, dress shoes, or sport shoes, you can find them all in a tool I created which lets you filter by the type of shoes you need. This tool is extremely effective since it will show you shoes in different widths such as narrow, medium, wide, and extra wide. I also tell you exactly how each shoe style fits (short, long, narrow, or wide) and will let you filter by the instep of your child’s foot. You can even find shoes that will accommodate an orthotic.
