How to Measure Kids Feet

It’s quite easy to measure your child’s feet, and there are a few methods to do it. Even if you’re not sure, go see a professional in a children’s shoe store for another measurement. If you want to DIY it, here are three simple techniques:


Tracing is the most frequent technique for measuring children’s feet at home — it’s simple, and no special equipment is required. Here’s all you need:

  • Marker
  • Blank paper
  • Ruler
  • Ribbon
  • One pair of bare feet

On a piece of paper on top of a clipboard or on a hard, non-carpeted floor, have your child stand. Get your kid to stand against a wall with their back straight as much as possible.

Trace the outline of the feet using the marker. Keep the marker at an upright angle for optimal results.

Remove your child from the paper. From the heel to the tallest point on the big toe, measure the length of your youngster. Keep track of how long it takes and make a note of it down below.

Take the ribbon and wrap it around your child’s widest part of the foot. Mark where the end of the ribbon contacts. From the mark, measure how long it is until you reach the end of the ribbon.

2.Printable Guide

Size specifications are included in the majority of shoe brands and manufacturers, with many even providing a handy printable one. These are beneficial and may assist you in getting a proper fit.

After you’ve printed the guide, cut along the dotted lines with the scissors to get a shorter height and width. Then grab the tape and attach the length ruler to the floor, aiming for a perpendicular position for the heel.

Place your child’s foot on the length ruler, aligning it with the curved line and the heel against the wall. After that, use a black marker to label the first line after the big toe.

Write down the length in the space provided. Make sure you’re using the right column according to whether your kid has a right or left foot.

While your youngster stands up straight, use the width ruler and slide it beneath the foot. Wrap it tightly around the widest point and make a note of where the ruler meets the “align here” indicator.

A shoelace may also be used to measure the width of a foot. Wrap it around the widest portion of the foot and then mark where the end touches the lace. Remove it and calculate how far apart they are using the distance between the mark.

3.Shoe Size Gauge

Another easy method of determining your youngster’s shoe size is to use a ruler and a size gauge. They’re also available online and at certain shoe stores.

Here’s what you need:

  • Paper
  • Measuring device
  • Pencil
  • Feet

Have your child stand up and face forward with their back straight. Locate the position of the heel on your measuring instrument. Then place the right heel in its proper location.

Write it down in front of you. You should be able to get the right length if you do this. A bar that you slide over your child’s foot to determine their width is included with some shoe measuring gadgets.

Consult the instructions if this isn’t clear. If not, you can utilize the ribbon or shoelace methods described in the preceding sections.

How Often to Size Your Kid’s Feet?

Tootsies start out tiny and develop fast, growing by up to half a size every two to four months between the ages of two and six. Every two to three months, you should change their shoes until they are four years old.

It’s best to keep them in shoes for the first three years of their life, but after that, they’ll be able to wear them longer.

Foot growth slows down somewhat around the age of four, and they may not require a new pair as frequently. Every four to six months is suggested by experts.

When Your Child Is Between Sizes?

Feet aren’t all the same. Two feet on the same youngster may develop differently from time to time. If your kid is between sizes, it’s always preferable to go with the larger foot.

It’s preferable to have a shoe that is somewhat bigger. Foot deformities or ingrown toenails can be caused by wearing shoes that are too small.
