Checklist For Children Shoes

Size
  • Children’s shoes are available in standard EU sizes. Start doing shoes from size 15.
  • When buying the shoes should be at least 1 – 1.5 cm longer than your child’s feet, so that your child can enjoy the shoe longer and it also fits comfortably.
  • Since children do not yet have a pronounced sense of pain, they can not tell whether the shoe pinches or not.
  • There are several ways to determine the right shoe size. You can measure your child’s foot and look in the table below to see what size your child needs, or you can make a foot template and measure it. The instructions for building the template can be found below. Alternatively, you can also use a measuring device for feet.
  • Based on customer reviews, you can see whether the children’s shoes may be smaller or larger and accordingly order the appropriate shoe size for your child.
Material
  • For children’s shoes made of natural materials, it is important to care for them appropriately.
  • Shoes made of natural materials should be impregnated before first use to make the shoe more durable and waterproof.
  • Some materials, such as natural rubber and leather, should also be treated regularly with special wax or oil to protect and maintain the shoe.
  • You can find the wax, oil or even waterproofing spray in shoe stores but also online.
  • In winter, your child should wear lined and waterproof shoes. This guarantees that your child has warm feet and they do not get wet.
Selection
  • The selection of children’s shoes is huge. They come in all colors and for all different uses.
  • There are slippers, rubber boots, winter boots, sports shoes and walkers, and many more.
  • Baby walkers are great for the process of learning to walk. Especially if your child runs a lot outside, it is important to wear a shoe.
  • With the colors you can decide according to your desire or that of your child. There are shoes in every imaginable color from simple gray to bright yellow.
  • But there are also shoes with motifs, such as dinos or butterflies.
  • Some children’s shoes are closed with a Velcro closure and others have laces. But there are also children’s shoes in which your child can simply slip in. It is important that your child’s shoe is well closed so that your child has a firm grip and can not trip over the laces.
