The Easy Way To Measure Kids For Spring Shoes & Sandals

With the pleasure of longer evenings, warmer days and maybe even the prospect of getting some sand between your tootsies on the horizon(?), spring's a great time for new footwear.

We’ve just launched a wonderful new range of trainers, shoes and sandals, from brands we’ve loved for years (hello Liewood and Veja!) as well as adding gorge new canvas trainers in fab colours and prints and fun beach shoes to the KIDLY Label shoe-rack.


While you’re admiring the line-up, can we suggest you also take a minute to give your kid’s feet a quick measure? It’s easy peasy - see below. All you need’s a sheet of paper and a tape measure or ruler. Oh, and a child that will stand still for ten seconds. ( maybe good luck with that bit…)

Sizing always varies slightly from brand to brand, but once you know how long your child's biggest foot is (see instructions) the individual brand measurement charts below will help you pick the right size. And remember, we do free 365 day returns, so you can always buy two sizes if you're unsure.


The easy way to measure their feet at home:



  1. Draw a straight line down a piece of paper. Put the paper on a hard floor, by a wall.
  2. Get them to stand with their heel against the wall and their longest toe on the line. Mark the line at the tip of the longest toe. Measure both feet - one will be longer!
  3. Measure the distance between the wall end of the paper and the furthest toe mark in cm, then use the relevant size chart for the brand (see below) to find the size to order. Remember to add 1 -1.5 cm growing room. If you really can't pick between sizes, order both and send back - we do free 365 day returns.
  4. Top tip: When you're measuring babies and young toddlers, it's easier to hold the paper up to their foot. Mark the line at both heel and toe, then measure between the marks.


We're really excited to be extending our footwear range for SS24. We've added GORGE new colours, stripes and a denim option to our Canvas Trainer range, a brand new Slider, some fab Sandals, a Swim Shoe and lots more shades to our bestselling Jelly Sandal Line-up.


In modern colours and an on-trend design, our Trainers feature all the comfort and practicality you’d expect: elasticated laces and a wide velcro ankle strap to encourage independent dressing, a low profile for active play, and a padded collar for extra comfort and support. The durable nylon and faux suede uppers are splashproof and the sole has plenty of grip.


Great for the garden or to keep kids safe around slippy poolsides or on pebbly beaches, our Mesh Beach Shoes are ultra grippy and designed to protect their whole foot, while still being light, breathable and super flexible. The quick-dry upper is gentle on wet feet, there’s a wide velcro strap that helps independent dressing and the cushioned insole makes them extra comfy, even on rocky surfaces.


The supportive cushioned insole in our Jelly Sandals makes them comfier for longer and can be removed for fast drying after splashing around. You get the smartness of a self-coloured buckle with the ease of velcro - so they can get them on and off in seconds.


Cool and sustainable pumps and trainers, made ethically with vegan suede and an innovative cotton, coated with a waste resin produced by the corn industry. Veja's natural rubber soles and built-up toes offer ultimate comfort while walking, running and just about anything else. Oh and they're prefect for parent and child twinning!
