Are Your Kids Wearing the Wrong Shoe Size?

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.
