How to measure children's feet at home
Whether it's casual canvas or everyday school shoes, we believe that it's really important to measure children's feet accurately before buying them every pair of shoes. That's because ill-fitting shoes can have a serious impact on your child's foot health for years to come. To help you do this, we offer three ways to measure your child’s feet from the comfort of your own home – plus a guide to help you check the shoes fit once they arrive!
