Measuring Your Kids' Feet at Home for Online Shopping:

May 03, 2023 3 min read


Shopping for kids' shoes online can be a daunting task, especially when it comes to finding the perfect fit. However, measuring your child's feet at home can simplify the process, ensuring a comfortable fit when purchasing shoes from online retailers like ShoeKid Canada. In this blog, we will discuss how to measure your kids' feet at home, the importance of considering each brand's fit, and ShoeKid Canada's customer support to help guide parents through the process.

  1. Preparing to measure your child's feet

Before measuring your child's feet, gather the necessary supplies:

  • A blank piece of paper
  • A pen or pencil
  • A ruler or measuring tape
  • Socks (if your child will wear them with the shoes)

Have your child stand on a flat surface with their weight evenly distributed between both feet. This position ensures an accurate measurement, as feet tend to expand slightly when bearing weight.

  1. Measuring your child's feet

Follow these steps to measure your child's feet:

  • Place the blank piece of paper on the floor, and have your child stand on it with one foot.
  • Using the pen or pencil, trace around your child's foot as closely as possible. Be sure to hold the pen or pencil perpendicular to the paper to avoid inaccurate measurements.
  • Repeat the process with the other foot, as feet can differ slightly in size.
  • Using the ruler or measuring tape, measure the length from the longest toe to the heel on each traced foot. Record the measurements in both inches and centimeters.
  • Measure the width of each foot at its widest point and record the measurements.
  1. Consult ShoeKid Canada's sizing chart

With the measurements in hand, consult ShoeKid Canada's sizing chart to determine the appropriate size for your child. Keep in mind that sizing can vary between brands, so be sure to check the specific brand's sizing chart if available. ShoeKid Canada offers a comprehensive sizing chart, making it easy for parents to find the perfect fit.

  1. Understand that each brand fits differently

It's essential to remember that each brand's fit may differ, even when following the same sizing chart. Some brands may run larger or smaller than others, so it's crucial to read product descriptions and customer reviews for insights into each brand's fit.
