If you prefer to shop online for school shoes, follow our handy tips to measure your child’s feet! Ensure your child is wearing a sock when measuring their foot – ideally one of their school socks if you have one handy. This will allow you to get a better idea of how shoes will fit when they put them on.
Make sure your child is seated and their foot can reach flat to the floor. We recommend doing this on a flat floor surface, not carpet, to get the best result. Position their leg at a right angle and ensure that the chair height allows them to sit naturally so that their foot is flat.

Grab a piece of paper and a place it underneath your child’s foot. With a pencil trace around their foot, ensuring the pencil remains in contact with the foot the entire time.
Once you have your traced foot, grab a measuring tape and measure the distance from the base of the heel to the tip of the largest toe. This will give you an approximate measurement that should help you select the right size. Note that width differs – we offer various width options indicated by the letter (ie – E, F).

Using this measurement, refer to the size guide to find your child's size.Avoid the temptation to buy a half or full size bigger. An ill-fitting shoe will cause the shoe to flex in the wrong point, creating discomfort for your child. It will also cause the shoe to crease away from the designed flex point, meaning the shoes won’t last as long as they should. If you’re still not sure, our friendly staff in store are fully trained in measuring feet and can ensure you go home with the perfect school shoes for your child. For shoes fitted professionally in-store, we offer a 30 day fit guarantee!

Check these key things to ensure you have the perfect shoe for your child!

Shoe Shape: While your child is standing feel for excess pressure on the little toe by feeling the top of the shoe.

Depth: Drag your thumb across the top of the shoe from inside to outside. If there are excessive creases or you can pinch the leather, the shoe is either too deep or too wide.

Length: While your child is standing feel for the longest toe. There should be a thumbs width of growing room.

Ankles: The ankle must be clear of the topline or edge of the shoe. This may not be necessary if the topline is padded.

Heel: The shoe must fit snugly around the heel, without slipping or pressing uncomfortably against the child's foot.

Walk: Ask your child to walk away from you then back again look for movement in the shoe, check for gaping and creases at the top of the shoe and make sure there is no heel slip.
