How to Measure a Child’s Foot

1. Draw a straight line on a piece of paper, longer than the child's foot.

2.  Place the paper on a flat surface.  Have the child stand on the line with their heel and longest toe centered on the line.  For a smaller child, hold the paper up to their foot.


3.  Place a mark on the line at the tip of the toe and the back of the heel.

4.  Measure the distance between the marks and use the conversion chart above to find the shoe size.  If one foot is larger than the other (very common), fit to the larger foot.

Since proper fit is so important for healthy foot development, we’ve got some helpful hints for sizing your child’s shoe.

  • It’s a good idea to have your child’s feet measured about every three months to see if his or her shoe size has changed.
  • If the child is between sizes, always order the larger size.
  • All Pickle shoes are made to fit a normal to somewhat wide foot. However, if your child has a narrow foot.  Try a going one size down.
  • Children should not have to “break in” a pair of shoes. The shoes must fit right and feel good from the beginning.  All of our shoes are made of soft, breathable material with flexible non-skid soles.
