View Full Version : What size shoe does your DS/DD wear?

I went to Stride Rite today and finally had Julia's feet officially measured. At 16 months old, she is only a size 4. This seems very small to me- especially since she has been off the charts in weight and 75% in height. How can she even balance on her tiny feet? =)

What size shoe does your toddler wear?

Well, when I first took Sarah to StrideRite at 19 months, she measured a 5. She now wears a 6 or 6 1/2 depending on the shoe. She has small feet, just like me! :)

Jacob is just shy of 16 months and he's a 5.5 wide. He's got huge feet and he's very difficult to fit. I had the worst time finding shoes for those pudgy little feet!

DS is 18 months (4/16/02) and is wearing a 7M - 7W in Stride Rites! YIKES! He has been jumping up a full size every 3-4 months! DD is almost 3 yo and is wearing a 9M - 9 1/2M!

My DD is 32 months old and wears an 8. At one year of age, she wore a 5. Every child is different. My DD is still wearing 18-24 month pants. There are clothes to fit everyone and much bigger things to worry about! :)

Colin is 16 mos. and wearing 4.5 wide. It's the size they put him in at 13 mos and they still seem to fit. I desperatly want him to outgrow his current shoes because I've already gotten addicted to the Striderite spend and I want to go out and get him some new shoes! But, I just can't rationalize it. :)

DS just got measured, and is a size 7 at 16 months - yikes!!

DS measured between a 5 and a 5.5 at 14 months. He's also pretty tall though, at over 24 inches. His Papa's got big feet and is tall as well, so it's clear where he gets it from!

At 22 months Truman was measured to be an 8 to 8 1/2. He's had big feet since birth. When he was 5 days old I had to go out and buy him new socks in a 3-6 month size!

At 12 months Audrey was 4.5 xw and now at 14 mo. she is 5.5 w in Stride Rite's. I am hoping for a slow down so she can get some wear out those expensive things! :)

DS is 14.5 months and wears a 4W. I was told at the Stride-Rite store that he has small feet (although apparently not narrow ones like mine) :)

Wow, Gabrielle is a runt! At 17.5 months, she's wearing a 3 Nike or a 3.5 Thom McAnn from Kmart. Her Robeez are a size 6/12 month and the're a bit big on her..... Must be those Japanese genes.... LOL

My son is 16 months and recently started wearing a size 5. He wore a size 4 for 4-6 weeks before that, but was able to wear his size 3 sandles until last week.

At 13 months I believe he was 4.5xw and the guy commented his feet were small. Now at just under 24 months he wears at 6-6.5w.

At 17.5 months, Abigail is in a 3.5. We have had good luck with Jumping Jacks shoes from www.nordstrom.com , which come in tiny sizes! I like them better than Stride Rites.

Gannon is a size 6 in Stride Rite, at 16 months. Papa's a big guy, so I'm guessing it runs in the family.

Matthew was first fitted at 12 months at Stride Rite. He was a 4.5 and right between M and W. I recently bought him some new shoes and he was a 5. He is now 16 months...Daddy wears a 12 so maybe Matthew will grow some...

Brig, who is 15 months, wears a size 7W in Stride Rite and Keds and 22W in Elefanten. At almost 12 months he wore a 5.5 W. He has chunker feet, but he's a big guy :).

5.5 wide at 11 months. Probably bigger now - maybe tomorrow will be a trip to the Stride Rite outlet!

My neighbor's 23 month old DD wears a size 3 -- here feet were so tiny that my neighbor had a hard time finding shoes with treads on the bottom when she first started walking. Small feet run in their family (she wears a kids 4.5 or 5).

On the other hand, my DS is 3 1/2 and wears a size 12 wide. I have a terrible time finding shoes for him anywhere except Stride Rite. PayLess shoes are not wide enough for his feet.

FWIW, I've never had Evan's feet officially measured. But my measurements put him around an 8.5-9. He was 32 months old yesterday. His feet have always been on the big side.

dd will be 3 next week---she wears a 6.5. At a year we got her first shoes, they were a 3.5. I didn't realize what a small foot she has.

Okay, get this. My DS is 19 months old and wears a 9!!!! His first pair of shoes at nine months old were a size 6 1/2!!! He has huge feet!!!
