Size Guide

Children under 6 tend to select their pair of shoes based primarily on the style, colour of the shoes or on what is trending amongst their peers and not necessarily considering comfort or extra space for development. This is why it is vital (as parents) to measure the length of your child’s feet regularly, to ensure that they wear the correct size of shoes.
On average, children’s feet grows approximately 1.5 mm a month up to 3 years, thereafter the growth slows down with their feet growing approximately 1 mm a month. Once you have the foot length measurement, check against our size chart for the respective brand and select the correct size accordingly. The manufacturer has already incorporated the extra 9-12mm extra length in these sizes, so you should not select one size up, as this will be too big on your child’s feet and will not support the healthy feet development optimally. The incorporated extra length will allow enough room for them to wear their pair of shoes comfortably while growing into them over a 4-6 month period for toddlers and over 9-12 month period for yound children. If you are still not sure which size to select, please feel free to drop us a message with the exact measurement of your child’s feet and we will advise you on the correct size based on the chosen shoe style or design.

How to measure your child’s feet?

  1. Take a blank piece of paper and a pen.
  2. Put your child’s foot on the paper, make sure their foot is flat and the toes are not curled.
  3. Draw a line in front of their longest toe and another one right behind their heel.
  4. Then measure the distance between the two lines in centimeters. (down to the millimeter is also fine)
  5. Once you have the length for your child’s feet, use the size guide charts below to find the corresponding shoe size.

Richter brand also caters for children who naturally have wider feet than the standard size. We recommend that you choose the style which either falls in the FitMI category as this style is designed with an inserted insole that provides two widths within one shoe. Or you should choose a style with WMS for an M-wide shoe size that provides extra comfort for children with larger feet widths.
