How To Measure Baby Shoe Size

When you’re shopping for your baby’s first shoes, it’s important to get the size right. Finding the right size of shoes for your baby can be a daunting task. With all of the different brands and sizes available, how do you know which ones to buy? In this blog post, we will teach you how to measure your baby’s shoe size so that you can find the perfect pair of shoes. We will also provide tips on how to choose the best shoes for your child’s needs. So, without further ado, let’s get started!

step1: Finding the length of your baby’s foot

When finding the right size shoes for your little one, you need to know their foot length. Find a hard floor and line up three books under their heel. Then place another book under their toe at an angle so it points towards the heel of the shoe. The distance between the back of their heel and the tip of their longest toe is your baby’s foot length.

Measure the distance in inches and round down to the nearest half-inch. If your result is an odd number, then round up to the nearest half-inch. Once you have this measurement, turn to our chart below to determine which shoe size is appropriate for your child.

12: 11 12 13

13: 11 12 13

(if your child’s foot length is between two sizes, we recommend you pick the larger size)

step2: Finding if your baby needs soft-soled or hard-soled shoes

Once you have your child’s foot length, you next need to determine whether they require shoes with soft soles or hard soles. First, look at their sole. If there is a gap between their first and second toe, then they likely need soft-soled shoes. If their toes are touching the sole, then they need hard-soled shoes.

If you’re not sure which type of shoe your child needs, we recommend going with soft-soled shoes as they provide more flexibility and are less likely to cause pain or injuries.

To find soft-soled shoes, you need to know your baby’s shoe size and foot length. For these shoes, we recommend going up a half-size and down a half-size. For example, if your child has a size 1 foot that is 10 inches long, then you’d want to buy them a pair of size 1.5 shoes.

To find hard-soled shoes, you need to know your baby’s shoe size and foot length. For these shoes, we recommend going up a full size. For example, if your child has a size 1 foot that is 10 inches long, then you’d want to buy them a pair of size 2 shoes.

Conclusion:

Hopefully, this blog post has helped teach you how to measure your baby’s shoe size. Remember to always round down to the nearest half-inch when measuring their foot length, and to pick the larger size if their foot length falls between two sizes. And lastly, remember to choose soft-soled shoes if their toes are spread apart, or hard-soled shoes if their toes are touching. If you have any questions, feel free to ask below!

By using these steps and recommendations, you can ensure that your baby has a comfortable and supportive pair of shoes for every occasion. Good luck!
