Sizing: Get the Perfect Fit

Selecting the correct size is important. Since each child’s foot is unique, no two children will have the same fit for any given shoe size.

Measuring your child's feet

Have you measured your child’s feet recently? To make sure shoes are fitted correctly, both feet should be measured every time a new pair of shoes is bought. Ideally, you should visit a children’s shoe store that can provide a professional fit your child. However, you can also measure your child’s feet from home: simply download and print the sizing guide to the right.

Please follow all printing and measuring instructions on the guide; otherwise you may not get accurate results and the shoes will not fit. Watch our video for a demonstration of how to use the sizing guide. Trouble downloading/printing the guide? Click here.

Trying shoes on

Trying shoes on is the best way to determine correct sizing. Over 2500 pediped® retailers can be found on our store locator. We encourage you to visit one of these retailers for your shoe purchase to ensure you get just the right size. Proper fitting should always be done while standing, since feet spread out in this position. Toes should be able to wiggle quite freely and should not be restricted by the shoe.
