Kids' Shoe Sizing Guide

Kids' shoes range in size from 0 (most newborns) to 7 (our largest grade school size). Kids' sizes stop at size 7, followed by a men's 7.5.

Children grow at different rates, and age ranges are provided only as a guide. For example, a 3-year-old might be able to wear either our largest Infant size (10) or our smallest Pre-School size (10.5). To determine the size you should buy, measure your child's feet and round up to the closest measurement in the column on the right. You can also follow these sizing instructions. Please also note that the width may vary as well. For example if a grade school boy wears a kid's size 7-XW the child may be comfortable in a men's size 7-2E and a 4E in men's may be a little to wide. For best fit please have your child measured at your local athletic shoe store.
