According to new research, four million children are wearing the wrong shoe size. The risks of children’s shoes not fitting correctly are blisters, pressure sores, and ingrown toenails for short-term problems. There should be no more than a 14mm gap between the big toe and end of a shoe in a new pair. Anything less than 8mm, and it’s time to get another pair.[1]

When you go shopping for new shoes, check the gap between the big toe and end of a shoe. If your child is going through a growth spurt, check the fitting more often.
