Do you ever see a great deal on cute little leather mary janes or winter snow boots and then, well, AAAGH. You can’t remember the exact size of your childrens’ feet. They change so fast – don’t they? Well, with our little cheat sheet Shoe Size Chart, you will be fine. Cross off their current size as they are wearing it, and you’ll be one step ahead.
It’s always so tough to get a good measurement, and the best machines are the old-fashioned metal ones we used as kids. If you are ever in doubt, it’s best to go to the shoe store and be properly fitted. I find that European sizes tend to fit a bit smaller than their North American counterparts. Always measure feet while standing, and it’s also best to measure wearing the socks that they will have in the shoes. (Or at least the same thickness).
