We’ll almost think summer is here with temperatures over 20 degrees this weekend. And it’s definitively time for spring and summer shoes!
Children’s feet grows quickly both in length and with, in average 15-18 mm per year. So it’s important to measure your child’s feet often and at at least every second month.
I’m a bit mad when it comes to this and measure my little Scandinavians at least every month because I’ve experienced that they suddenly can do a growth spurt.

What to consider when buying new footwear for your child:
– Measure the length while your child stands. Add another 10-15 mm to the foot and you’ll have the length of the inner sole of a shoe that fits length vise.
– I prefer shoes that has a round tip and low heel and that are made of leather or fabric that breaths.
– It’s recommended to always try on the shoe before buying, to make sure it fit in the with as well. But if you know the with of your child’s foot, and you know the brand you are buying, it’s not too risky purchasing online either. Also several of the online shops offer a return possibility in case they don’t fit (or you don’t like them after all).
