Kids Shoe Size ChartFoot length is the most important part of shoe sizing. The length and width of your child’s foot will determine what size is the best for them. If your child has a foot length of around 4 inches, for example, they likely wear a size 2-4 children’s shoe.

To make sure you get the right shoes for your children, measure their feet regularly, and use the above chart to convert their foot length into their shoe size.

Let’s take a US size 7, for example. Following this chart, we can see that a US size 7 is a UK size 6.5, which is quite similar. However, it’s a Euro size 23. By measuring your child’s foot and using this chart, you can easily figure out which size is right for them, even when shopping for non-US shoe sizes.

UK shoe sizes are actually surprisingly close to US shoe sizes for kids, and usually the size difference is only about 1/2  size.  A US size 9 children’s shoe, for example, corresponds to a UK size 8.5

As a rule, you can just subtract 1/2 size from a US size to get the UK size – but some manufacturers and companies do things differently, so make sure to consult these size charts whenever you’re shopping for shoes.

EU Sizes = European Sizes/Euro Sizes are used in the whole of Europe, including France, Italy, Germany, Sweden etc. Italian Shoe Sizes, French Shoe Sizes and German Shoe Sizes are all unified as “Euro Shoe Sizes”.

European shoe sizes are measured in centimeters. Just like US shoes, though, the number does not correspond directly to the size of the shoe – a size 23 shoe will not be 23 centimeters long, but will in fact be about 13.5 centimeters in length. It’s very difficult to convert US children’s shoe sizes to Euro shoe sizes on your own, so we recommend consulting the above chart to make sure you perform the conversion properly.

How to Measure Length Of Feet

Measuring the length of your child’s foot is easy. All you need to do is get a piece of paper, a pencil, and a ruler.

Then, simply have your child stand up straight, and put each one of their feet on the piece of paper. Trace the shape and outline of their foot with the pencil, and then use the ruler to measure the foot, from behind the heel to the tip of the longest toe.

Make sure you measure both feet, as the size of each foot could differ by up to half an inch. IN addition, children’s feet grow very rapidly, so you should measure their feet about every 2 months, to make sure they have not outgrown their current pair of shoes.

How to Measure Your Kids' Shoe Size

How to Measure Your Kids’ Shoe Size? Place the foot on a sheet of paper and mark the circumference (keep the pencil straight). Then measure the longest distance with a ruler an look ip the size in our shoe size chart.

How Can You Check If Shoes Fit Perfectly?

A child’s shoe should have about 1-2 inches of room, which allows their foot to grow, and keeps the shoe from being overly restrictive. To check the fit of a pair of shoes, have your child put them on, and tie them properly.

Next, place your hand on the front of the shoe, so your child can’t move their toes. Then, use your other hand to check the space at the heel. There should be a little bit of space between the heel and the shoe, but not too much.

After this, grip the heel and pull. It should shift somewhat, but the shoe should not come off of the foot. Next, check to make sure there are no large gaps between the top of the shoe and the heel. A small gap is okay.

Finally, have your child walk around in their new shoes for a while – and ask them how they feel! Watch to see if the shoe slips or slides, and make sure your child is walking easily and naturally.

Is American Shoe Size Same As UK?

No. However, they are quite similar. UK sizes are, as a rule, 1/2 size smaller than the corresponding US size. A size 8 US shoe is a size UK shoe, and so on. Consult with the above charts and calculators, and you’ll be able to make sure you choose the right UK shoe size, based on your US shoe size.

Is American Shoe Size Same As Canada?

Yes. Canadian size for children’s, mens, and womens shoes are identical to US sizes – so there is no conversion necessary. As long as you know your child’s US size, you’ll know their Canadian size!
