Simple and easy to use

Confidently get the right size for little toes

Our large gauge is great for measuring the feet of your mini explorers in the comfort of your own home. The gauge measures the length and width of your child's feet in millimetres to find their Start-Rite shoe size making getting the right size first time a doddle.

What age child is it suitable for?

It’s perfect for kids who can stand on their own and have a shoe size small 9 or larger - or for those from around the age of 3

Place the blue measuring gauge onto a hard floor surface.
To measure the length, get your child to place their foot into the gauge. They should be standing straight and their heel should be against the back rest.

Hold the heel firmly in the back rest and ensure the toes stay flat. Check the socks are not preventing the toes from laying flat.

Push the length slider forward so that it rests lightly on the longest toe.

Holding the length slider in place, remove the foot and make a note of the measurement indicated in front of the slider. Repeat for the other foot.

To measure the width, first run your finger down both sides of the foot. You should be able to feel the toe joints - these are the bumps or either side of the foot just below the big and little toes.

Now position the tape so that it's around the widest part of the foot. This is the part of the foot from the big toe joint to the little toe joint. You are likely to have the tape at an angle, this is correct.

Pull the tape gently, so that it's snug around the foot, but not tight, and then take the measurement where the tape meets the blue line marked on the tape, and make a note of this. Repeat for the other foot.

Take the length measurement of the longest foot and the width measurement of the widest foot and enter them into the size calculator to find out your start-rite shoe size.
