Measure feet

It is extremely important that your child wears the right size shoes. To determine your child's shoe size at home, follow the steps below.

Step 1. Place both your child's bare feet on a piece of paper and draw the outline. It is important that your child is standing upright.


Step 2. Measure the circumference of the feet to determine the distance from the tip of the big toe to the heel of both feet.


Step 3. Take the largest foot as a reference, adding 1 cm of extra growth space. The overview below shows you which shoe size goes with this.

* All age/size ranges are intended for general reference and are to be used as a guide only; age and size will vary.
** Children's shoes are built on a narrower last than women's shoes. Order your usual size, but expect the fit to be less roomy than a traditional women's shoe.

Example
The measured distance between the feet from the heel to the tip of the big toe: left foot 154 mm - right foot 158 mm. Starting from the largest base 158 mm + 1 cm (or 10 mm) is 168 mm and choose size 25.

Because the brands and models turn out differently, we indicate as much as possible in the description of the shoe in the webshop how the dimensions are (normal, large, small). If you have any doubts about the right size, please feel free to contact us so that we can measure the inner size of your chosen shoe and in this way advise you about the right shoe size.

A child's foot grows from size 18 to an average size 39 in 14 years. So there are at least 21 sizes with an average of 1.5 per year, but this is not always a gradual process.

Age of growth frequency per shoe size

0 - 3 years 4 months
4 - 5 years 6 months
6 - 7 years 8 months
8 - 10 years 10-12 months
11 - 13 years 3-4 months

This is the average growth rate. Of course, no child is standard and a growth spurt of 1 size in 2 months is also common. Children do not often indicate that shoes are too small, as the ends of the nerves are not yet well developed.
Check the size of the shoe regularly. If the shoe has a removable sole, you can put your child's foot on the sole and see if there is still enough space (at least 6 mm between the big toe and the nose shoe) for the foot to unwind. If in doubt, have your child's feet measured using a professional measuring device.



Shoes advice children

The following tips are extremely important in order to find the right shoe!

It is recommended that children who are not yet walking or who are just starting to do so wear large and flexible shoes. These are the pre-step shoes (e.g. Tricati, Pompom, ...)

When they actually start to walk, the shoes have to meet certain requirements:
1. There must be enough toe space, but the shoe must not be loose around the toes either.

2. Flexibility of the sole in the right place. Not at the midfoot, but at the forefoot.

3. A sturdy, well enclosed counterforce / heel section. Must be firmly anchored to the sole.

4. Do not allow torsion in the longitudinal direction of the shoe.

5. A flexible sole. For foot unwinding, the nose of the sole of the foot may only move over 10°.
6. High instep connection to prevent slipping into the shoe.
7. Correct width.
8. No heel or a low wide heel.
9. 1 cm long access lift for the growth and settlement of the foot.



Determining the right size of clothing

You can determine the right clothing size by means of this overview, which is very handy!

The table of sizes for children is intended as a guide. This is based on averages. Often trademarks and designs still fall differently.

The age category is also only an indication. Not every child grows at the same rate or has the same physique at that particular age. For this reason, we recommend that you pay particular attention to the height of the child's body. If the length of your child falls between two sizes, we recommend that you take the largest size. It is also best to take a size bigger with children who grow faster or are built a bit bigger.

If in doubt, feel free to send an e-mail to info@annapops.be. Then we will gladly measure up for you.
