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. 

  • 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
  • Children grow at different rates, and age ranges are provided only as a guide

Please also note that the width may vary as well:

  • 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 maybe a little too wide
  • For best fit please have your child measured at your local athletic shoe store
