Kids feet are constantly growing, and it can be hard to know how often to check their shoes and order new ones. Ideally a child will have a minimum of 12mm of extra length in front of their shoes, so once they become shorter than that, it’s time to find a new pair. The best way to determine whether your child’s shoes fit is the Plus12 device, it works for adults too!
Sonja, a professional shoe fitter in the UK, recommends the following timetable as a rough guide for when to check your kids’ shoes:
- “First walkers – every four to six weeks.
- Toddlers and preschoolers – every six to eight weeks.
- Primary school aged children – every three to four months.
- Secondary school aged children – every five to six months.”
