Get Ready, Get Set for Back to School and Back To Sport at Intersport Elverys. As school comes back a lot of you will be looking to measure and research your kids footwear online.

Here at Intersport Elverys, we can give you a step by step guide of how to measure feet correctly at home. Even if your child’s feet haven’t grown, they might need new shoes, as shoes lose support and cushioning with wear and tear. You can also get your child’s feet measured in-store from one of our knowledgeable staff who use the perfect fit measuring device to ensure your child gets the right fit AND the right shoe.

If you’re one who likes to do there research at home though. take a look below and follow the simple steps on how to measure your kids feet at home.

Step 1: Draw a straight line down a piece of paper.

Step 2: Place the paper on a hard, flat surface alongside a wall. Have the child place their heel against the wall, with their longest toe and heel centered on the line. Mark the paper on the line at the tip of the longest toe.

Step 3: Measure both feet as there may vary in size.

Step 4: Measure the distance between the end of the paper and the toe mark in centimeters and use the General Sizing Guide (below) to find your child shoe size (allowances for foot growth in new shoes have been made in the General Size Guide).

Tips for measuring:

– Measure feet at the end of the day when you child’s feet are at their largest.

– Measure in the socks they will wear with their new shoes, if appropriate.

– Measure both feet and fit the shoes to the larger foot.

– It is best to measure your child’s foot while they are standing upright.
