Measuring your feet
It’s important to measure your children’s feet accurately before buying them each pair of shoes, to ensure healthy foot development for years to come.

Getting the correct advice will ensure that your child is measured and fitted with the correct size and style of shoe for their feet, through every stage of their development.

You can either purchase a foot gauge from us or download our handy shoe measuring gauge which will ensure you order the correct size shoe for your child.

How to measure

Step 1 - Length

Place the measuring gauge onto a hard floor surface

To measure the length, get your child to place their foot into the gauge. They should be standing straight and their heel should be against the back rest. Hold the heel firmly in the back rest and ensure the toes stay flat. Check the socks are not preventing the toes from laying flat.

Step 2 - Length

Push the length slider forward so that it rests lightly on the longest toe.

Step 2.1 - Length

Holding the length slider in place, remove the foot and make a note of the measurement indicated in the viewing panel of the slider.

Repeat for the other foot.

Step 3 - Width

To measure the width, first run your finger down both sides of the foot. You should be able to feel the toe joints - these are the bumps on either side of the foot just below the big and little toes. Position the tape so that it's around the widest part of the foot. This is the part of the foot from the big toe joint to the little toe joint.

Step 4 - Width

You are likely to have the tape at an angle, this is correct. Pull the tape gently, so that it's snug around the foot, but not tight. Take the measurement where the black arrow markers point to on the tape and make a note of this.

Repeat for the other foot. It's not uncommon for one foot to be slightly bigger than the other.

Step 5 - Width

Enter the length and width of your biggest foot into our size calculator here.

Once your measurements have been entered we will work out the best shoe size and fit to make sure you are ordering correctly.
