Camino Kids consult podiatrists periodically when selecting the new season shoe range or bringing new brands on board to ensure that our customers are purchasing the best quality and the right shoes for the right stage of development.
Measure your Child's Foot
Trace around your child’s foot with an A4 piece of paper and a pen. Measure from heel to toe and match with the size chart provided for each brand.
Note: Leave 1.5cm for babies & 2cm for toddlers & children in additional wriggle room for growth.
Ensure there is enough room
When you try the shoe on your child, press down at the end of the shoe ensuring there is a finger width of wriggle room at the end of the shoe for babies and a thumb width for toddlers and children.
Check the comfort & flexibility
Make sure your child can bend and flex their foot and the foot doesn’t feel restricted or is bulging at the sides.
Re-measure and fit for new shoes approximately every 6-12 months.
Look at the sole length and leave about 1.5cm for a child at the end of the shoe for wriggle room. Babies up to 18 months only need 1cm left at the end for wriggle room.
Note: If the size chart has a recommended foot length, then stick within or just under that foot length.
We will try our best to have available sizes for all current stock however our shoes are seasonal and we generally don’t re-order styles and sizes once they are out of season. This ensures we always have fresh new styles available for our little stompers. If you would like to check if a product is coming back in stock, please fill out the form on the Contact Us page and one of our team members will provide you with further information.
It’s really important to measure your child’s foot before deciding on the size shoe (unless you are already confident on the size of their foot). So get out the tape measure and measure when they are standing. Or trace their foot on a piece of paper and measure it later. With babies, measure their foot in your hand. Get the length from the end of the heel to the end of the longest toe. Make sure you leave approximately 2cm at the most from the big toe to the end of the shoe (about the space of a thumbnail). Check out our sizing knowledge hub here. If your shoes have arrived and they do not fit your child’s foot, we are very happy to return them within 28 days of the purchase date. Please refer to our return policy for instructions.
When your child is wearing their shoes and standing up, check the fit by gently press down with your thumb at the end of their toes. There should be no more than approximately a finger space for babies and thumbnail space for toddlers between the end of the toes and the shoe. You should not allow much more than this or else the shoes will be too big and can effect the way they walk in the shoes. Similarly, their toes should not be pushing to the end of the shoe or bulging at the sides of the shoe. Check out our sizing knowledge hub here. We are always here to help!

Visit our sizing knowledge hub here. First, measure! It’s very important to measure your child’s foot first. Every brand has a specific size chart. It will give you the measurements of the shoe sole for each size. Measure your child’s foot from the end of the heel to the top of the longest toe. When choosing the size, you should allow some wriggle room from the top of the toe to the end of the shoe. It should be approximately 1.5cm (finger width) for babies and 2cm (thumb width) for toddlers.
Each product page has a size chart you can click on. We also have a whole dedicated sizing knowledge hub that can be accessed here. It will give you handy tips on how to select the best size for your child.
