Parents try to give their children the best thing, that is why size is very important because when a kid wears a shoe with its the perfect size, it brings comfort for the baby. The baby loves it when it is made with a soft cloth which gives another level of comfort.


 How to Measure Your Child’s Foot Size:


                             Children are too moody you know! Suppose you can not take your kid to the store, then what will you do? There are two main ways to measure your child’s foot size.

1. Brand Method

                                   In this method, you will find a printable chart on their website, in many cases.


                  You just need a pen, a piece of paper, a printed sizing chart, and a ruler. Tape the piece of paper on the floor and place your child’s foot on it. Make sure the foot is flat and the toes aren’t curled up. Start by drawing an outline from the heel to their longest toe. Remove the toe and measure the space drawn in inches using a ruler. Add 1/4″ to your measurement for legroom and you’re done. If you plan to make your child wear socks, repeat this process while wearing socks to get accurate measurements. Print out the brand’s chart and find the measurement according to the one you recorded for comparison. When you’re printing out the chart, make sure to uncheck “page scaling” in the print preferences and set the scale to 100%.

2. Tape Measure Method

                                                                               This is a very old method to measure kid’s feet but it works like a charm. You’ll need someone’s help to hold your child’s feet still due to the squirming and fidgeting.


                  You just need a measuring tape, paper, and a pen. Position your child up against the wall with the measuring tape on the floor. Then place your child’s foot on the 1″ mark and make sure it’s flat. Get someone to hold your child during this so that they don’t move or wiggle. Note the measurement by recording from the 1″ mark to the back of the heel, get out a piece of paper, and convert it to centimeters and other units for reference. Visit your nearest store and shop for shoes by handing them over that size or select the measurements online for home delivery.

You should measure your kids’ feet every two to three months during the first 2 years and once every six months after that. When you do measure your kids’ feet, make sure to record the measurements and use a bigger size. That way, you ensure a smooth and comfortable fit.

                      Now if I say about good quality and soft cloth then you should take branded things for your kid and when I say about the brand at first the name comes to my mind which is UNC mart. UNC mart is not a name it is a brand itself.

8 You Need Comfort in Footwear

Kids’ feet grow half their current size every three months. Their feet are at their biggest during the afternoons after they spend a day standing tall. Measure it during that time and be sure to triple check the measurements after you take them for best results. If your kid plans to wear socks, take the measurements with the socks on (unless you want a tight fit).

Although it’s nice to have eye measurements and ask your relative to do your kids’ shoe shopping for you, you’ll realize that doing some researching and taking them, yourself pays off. This way, every time your kids’ feet grow bigger, you know what to do and are not at the mercy of going to the store.

Plus, taking measurements at home is also time-saving and doesn’t involve a lot of running around. And the fun part is in the shopping once you take care of the number-crunching stuff.
