Kit & Kate's presents our Australian sizing guide for toddlers, kids and children's sandals. Selecting the right sandals for summer for your first walker can be difficult as children's sandal shoe sizes be as confusing as baby shoe sizes with many different versions. To help make it easier, we created this handy and easy to use guide based on best practice. We have even thrown in a handy sandal sizing chart by age (years and months) and country (AU/EU/US) for easy size conversion to help you get the best fit for your child. We trust that you will find it useful as we have done our best to make it as easy as possible to use to help answer questions such as: 

How do I figure out my children's sandals size?
What size sandal is a 12 month or 1 year old baby first walker?
How to measure my child's feet / foot? 
What ages correspond to a size for baby and children's feet?
What size sandals  do 2, 3 and 4 year olds wear?
What are the sandals shoes for my baby or toddler to learn how to walk?
 
For those of you that don't know us, we are small family owned online business based in Perth, Western Australia where we sell our very own, locally designed quality natural leather, soft soled baby shoes. Inspired by the classics, our shoes are designed to be as comfortable as they are stylish, so much so that we'd say that children never want to take them off!

Sizing Guide for Baby, Toddler, First Walker & Kids Sandals (AU/US/EU/UK)

Finding the right size pair of sandals for your little one as they are learning to walk need not be a trying task. Trust us, a good baby sandal sizing guide  will make the task a lot more manageable. It is important to remember that in the heat of summer, feet swell up. As a result our sandals are a tiny bit larger and wider than our shoes to leave a little bit of room for those chubby little feet. However, for consistency, our beautiful children's baby, toddler and children's sandals always follow Australian sizing rules. Just in case though, for those of you who are used to shoe sizes from other countries, we have included a handy sizing conversion table / chart so that you can easily convert between European (EU), American (US), United Kingdom (UK) and Australian (AU) sizes. 

What to do: Just measure your child's foot from heel to the tip of their big toe and leave an extra about 1cm for growing. 

Handy hint for measuring your child's foot: We sometimes find it easier to put their feet on a piece of blank paper, trace around it and then measure after as it can be impossible to hold a tape measure to their wiggly little feet.

All you have to do then is order your required size based off the cm or size measurement (don't forget to add that extra cm) in our handy conversion chart below. If your baby is between sizes or you aren't completely sure, select the larger size. They do grow quite quickly!

SIZE (AU / UK) In-Sole Length Age Guide (Approx) EU Size US Size
3 11.8 cm 6-12 months old 19 4
4 12.6 cm 12-18 month old 20 5
5 13.4 cm 18-24 month old 21/22 6
6 14.2 cm 2 year old 23 7
7 15 cm 2.5 year old 24 8
8 15.8 cm 3 year old 25/25.5 9
9 16.6 cm 3.5 year old 26.5/27 10
10 17.4 cm 4 year old 28 11

 The table above should be used as a guide only as children's feet sizes can vary considerably even between children of the same age.

We always recommend that you measure their lovely little feet to be sure as children's feet do vary a lot in size even at he same age.

 

SIZE UP

When in doubt, size up! Children do tend to grow really quickly, so if you aren't sure, it never hurts to err on the side of caution!

DON'T STRESS

Still not sure? Don't stress as we have a great, super easy  exchange policy :)
