I have scoured the web and created the below kid’s shoe size chart below that will hopefully come in handy! I have also included baby sizes from 0 months – 2 years.
Below, I have included kid’s shoe size chart conversions for babies and kid’s from the US, EU, UK & Japan. There is also the included approximate age for each corresponding shoe size.

In the above baby shoe size chart, you will find sizes for babies aged 0 months – 2 years with corresponding shoes sizes and measurements in centimetres and inches.
While I have not included Australian or Indian sizes in the chart, a good rule of thumb to remember is that Indian shoe sizes are the same as the UK. Also Australian sizes are the same as the UK. If you are viewing the below chart on mobile, I find it is best to flip your smartphone to landscape mode for better viewing 🙂.

Above, you will find a comprehensive kid’s shoe size chart with conversions for boys and girls, and age comparisons. This table starts from size US 5 – 13.5 and covers approximate ages from 12 months – 7 years.
After the size US 13.5, the kids sizes transition to youth adult sizes starting from size 1. So you may need to consult an adult mens or womens size guide depending on the size of your child’s feet. If viewing this table on a mobile, it may be easier to read in landscape orientation.

If you plan on buying shoes for your baby, toddler or child. I recommend to measure your feet or try on the shoes towards the end of the day. This is because the feet swell throughout the day due to standing/walking and can actually change the size of your feet! Also try shoes on with the favourite pair of socks to ensure a perfect fit!
How To Find The Correct Fitted Shoe For Your Child
While the above kid’s shoe size chart is a great starting point when looking to purchase shoes. There’s also some extra tips and tricks to be conscious of when making your decision.
We all know how “uncomfortable” it can be for both kids and the parents when their shoes don’t fit correctly. So here are some of my favourite tips to use!
1. Measure/try shoes on later in the day: As I briefly touched on above, measuring and trying on shoes in the afternoon is recommended. Due to standing, walking and crawling, the feet of children and adults actually swell during the day. So if you have ever got shoes in the morning the fit and find they are tight in the afternoon. This may be why.
2. Wear the favourite socks as this can sometimes adjust the shoe sizing: Another great tip is to get your kid to wear their favourite socks. This gives a more accurate representation of how their feet, soles and toes will fit in the shoes with the extra layer of material.
3. Measure feet, sole and width of foot to get a more accurate size: If you find that you can never find the right sizes shoe for your youngster. It may also be worth messing the width of the foot. If one has wider feet, custom for more unique shoes may be needed. Shoe sizing width are AA, A, B, C or D and E, EE, EEE, or 4E.
4. Allow for addition room in the shoe for wiggle of toes, heal and growth: As kids grow like beansprouts, I find it is sometimes best to get shoes, boots or jandals with extra wiggle room. This means you will have to purchase less shoes. Be careful not to get shoes that are too big as it can rub on the heel causing blisters and calluses that can also lead to the formation of a bone spur.
5. Measure both feet as sometimes each foot can differ in size: One other great tip is to measure both feet! Weirdly enough our left and right feet can actually differ a lot is sizes. You can shock out this helpful article for more information.
