Kids Shoe Size Chart and Measuring Guide

Measuring your Child's Feet

We recommend that you take time to measure your child's feet and order the correct size. Correctly fitting shoes are so important and it's not always easy to get it right. Shoes are made from moulds and as a consequence they will fit differently. Even similar styles of shoes in the same size and from the same brand can fit differently. This page aims to help you in measuring your child's feet correctly and minimising the chance of ordering the wrong size. However, we know that it's not always possible to get it right and that's why at ShoesForChildren we offer a free exchange service, covering the cost of your postage with our easy Freepost service. We've included a range of videos and shoe size charts to help you navigate through the measuring process.  


Our kids' shoes start from a toddler size Euro 18 (UK size 2) up to an adult size Euro 42 (UK size 8).In school shoes, we also offer sizes up to Euro 47 (UK size 12). Our shoes come in half sizes and different widths. Each brand tends to fit somewhat differently. Below is some information on each of the brands we stock and which will hopefully make choosing that little bit easier. 


The Fitting of Brands:



This English shoe brand offer shoes in a variety of widths from E (narrow fit) through to an H (extra wide). Their kids shoes are also available in half sizes. 90% of kids will either be an F or G width shoe.



This German brand tends to be good for a narrower foot (i.e. E-F width) and they come in European sizes. Our shoe conversion charts will help you to work out the EU-UK shoe size conversion. 



This Italian brand tends to be good for a standard to wider foot (i.e. F-G width). Again, they are usually quoted in EU shoe sizes so please refer to the UK-EU shoe conversion chart. 



This American brand are good for the wider foot from a G-H width

E – Narrow Fit
F – Standard Fit
G – Wide Fit
