How to measure the foot?
Choosing the correct size is not child's play.
It is very important to measure the feet of our children accurately and correctly before buying their shoes, since poorly fitted shoes can have a harmful effect on health. Choosing the correct size will avoid future problems in adulthood.
Check the size guide for each product as not all of them are the same.
How to measure foot length:
First, put a sheet of paper on the ground, then place the child's bare foot on the paper, with the sole completely flat and straight. Once this is done, put a mark where the longest toe ends and a mark on the heel.
Next, measure the length between the two marks on the sheet itself with a ruler or measuring tape. Once you know the length in centimeters, consult the size guide of each model that you will find on our website to see the size equivalent.
Remember to leave a little headroom between what the foot’s measurement and the measurement of the inner sole, never more than 1 cm.
For best results, measure both feet. If the two measurements equate to different sizes, choose the larger size when buying shoes.
The size guide may vary from one model to another as it depends on each manufacturer.
Don’t forget to try on the shoes! A few tips:
- Try the shoes on in the afternoon, as feet swell throughout the day.
- Winter shoes should always be tried on with a sock.
- ALWAYS try both shoes on, the feet are not the same.
- According to expert podiatrists: With the toes as far forward as possible, the foot well supported and with the shoe open, there should be approximately one toe left between the buttress and the heel.
- Never buy a bigger shoesize to make the shoes last longer, it is detrimental to the development of the foot.
