My name is Nicola, a mother to two little ones and trained Start Rite fitter for many years. I've put together what I've learnt in a quick guide to help you make sure your child's shoes fit!
We spend a lot of our time informing people how important it is to get their children shoes that fit properly in order to aid the development of their feet from baby to toddler until the day they leave their school shoes behind and start a new chapter of their life. But while the shops have to remain closed during lockdowns, we realise it can be quite difficult to keep up with measuring and fitting.
It's important to note that every type of footwear, whether it be a shoe, sandal, boot or slipper will fit differently and need slightly altered methods of checking, but this guide should give a basis to help you make a decision.
A trained fitter has the skills and expertise to recommend different styles depending on the shape of foot. If you have any questions about any of our products, please feel free to drop us a message.
