Children in need of new shoes
We’re here to help.
Below is a guide on how to measure your child’s feet at home.
If you have any queries or questions please message us via our Facebook page or email firstname.lastname@example.org or you can give us a call 07917 640702.
Before you start, make sure you follow these simple guidelines first:
It is advisable to measure your child’s feet later in the day, preferably in the evening. This is because the foot expands throughout the day
Ensure your little one is wearing socks, since they are most likely going to be wearing socks when they wear their shoes.
Get all your tools ready for action, you will need the following:
A flat surface
A measuring tape or ruler
A child’s foot to measure!
Now for the fun part;
Put a piece of paper up against a wall.
Ask your little one to stand with one foot on the piece of paper, with their heel up against the wall, vertical surface or you could stand in an old shoe box.The important bit it that the heel is against a vertical surface.
Mark on the paper where the longest toe comes to, keeping the pencil upright. Repeat with the other foot.
If your child is wriggly, the most important marks to ensure you capture are; the heel and the end of the longest toe.
Make sure you measure each foot separately, as many children will have one foot slightly bigger than the other.
Using the ruler, measure from the edge of the box, or paper to the end of the longest toe on each foot drawing and make a note of the measurement in millimetres.
