Shoe Fitting

Since 2013, The Children’s Shoe Company has accumulated a wealth of knowledge about children’s feet, our shoe brands, and how shoes fit – in fact, many of our customers travel for our expert shoe fitting service. 

In an attempt to make this invaluable information available to our online customers, we have collated our fitting experiences of the brands we sell and this is shown below.  While nothing can replace having your child’s feet measured by a trained professional, we do hope you find the below guide helpful.

If you still have questions, don’t hesitate to call us on 01628 290212, email us on info@thechildrensshoecompany.co,uk or post your question on our Facebook page, we will get back to you.
