How to shop kids footwear online

As we all know, as the weeks and months roll by, kids of all ages continue to grow and develop especially in the footwear department. With all of our Intersport Elverys stores temporarily closed, we cannot offer you a foot measuring service in-store, but 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. Take a look below and follow the steps.

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.
