Size measurements often vary from brand to brand, hence why it’s not always easy to choose the right size for your children’s clothes and shoes. Below, you will find a list of size-guidelines from some of our biggest brands. If the brand you’re searching for does not have its own guideline, please have a look at our general children’s clothing and shoe size-guide at any of our products.
Below, you will find advice on how to take your children’s measurements:
- A: Measure the height while standing with the heels against a wall. Then, just measure from the floor to the top of the head.
- B: Head circumference is measured around the head.
- C: Chest circumference is measured around the widest part of the chest.
- D: Waist circumference is measured around the narrowest part of the waist.
- E: Seat circumference is measured around the widest part of the hip.
- F: Inside leg is measured from where the inside leg begins, down to the floor.
- G: Shoulder, and arm are measured from the neck, down to the wrist.
- H: Shoulder width is measured from one shoulder to the other.
- I: The sleeve length is measured from shoulder to wrist.
- J: Side seam is measured from the waist, down to the foot.
While shopping for children’s shoes, finding the right size is extremely important. Children’s feet grow very fast, and our general recommendation by this means, is to add 1.5cm to the length of the foot, while choosing the size. This will prevent the shoes from being too tight while playing and running, and will provide some space for the feet to grow.
The size guides for children’s shoes, either show the shoe’s insole measurement, or the foot’s measurement.
Feet are simply measured by placing the back of the heel against a flat surface, e.g. a wall. Mark the longest toe of the foot on a piece of paper. Afterwards, you can easily measure the length with the use of a ruler. Please measure both feet, as they often vary in size. If one foot is larger than the other, always select a size based on the measurements of the longest foot.
