Finding the correct size
We often hear that it is difficult to pick out the right size for your child. But this no longer has to be, as we have described the individual steps here.
It is first and foremost important to measure your child’s feet before buying new shoes and boots. The length of the feet should be compared with the inner measurements of the specific style desired.
The easiest way to measure children's feet is by placing them standing (without socks) on a piece of paper. Draw around each foot and then measure the length from the tip of the toe to the heel. Alternatively, our foot meter can be downloaded here.
The recommended growth supplement is clearly stated under each individual product description. Add this supplement to the length of the foot, and you now have the correct size for your child’s shoes!
For many of our models, we recommend 1.2 - 1.5 cm of extra space from the tip of the toe to the shoe toe. The term "growth supplement" actually covers several things and will typically be distributed as follows:
- Approx. 0.5 cm is a so-called sliding supplement, as the foot will slide forward in the shoe when the child walks
- Approx. 0.7 cm provides space for the foot to grow
- Approx. 0.3 cm is used by the toe cap
How to do it - step by step
Measure the child's feet (both feet as there may be a difference)
• Right foot measures: 15.8 cm.
• Left foot measures: 16 cm.
Find the recommended growth-space on the desired model
• Cajsa is e.g. the desired model, and here a growing-space of 1.2-1.5 cm is recommended.
Add the foot measurements and growing-space together to find the necessary inner measurement
• 16 + 1.2 = 17.2 cm. (should always be calculated from the longest foot if they are different)
• Cajsa size 27 has the inner measurement of 17.3 cm and will therefore be the right choice!
• It provides a growth-space of 1.5 cm. on the right foot and 1.2 cm. on the left and therefore fits with the recommendation ace of 1.2-1.5 cm is recommended.
