Here are a few tips to keep in mind about getting the right fit when shoe shopping, and many of these can be applied to adults as well.


• Shoe shopping should be done later in the afternoon/evening as feet swell over the course of the day.

• Feet should be measured and this should be done while standing so feet are fully extended.

• There should be about a half-inch of room between the edge of the shoe and your child’s toes. Never buy shoes that are more than one size too large for your child.>

• Wear the socks that will be worn with the shoes when trying them on.

• Be sure the heel rests snugly but not tightly around the back of the heel.

• Shoes need to be comfortable at the time you buy them. Don’t allow for a “breaking in” period
