Sizing Guide

GETTING THE RIGHT FIT


At Toughees we know that for some families, ordering children’s school shoes online can save a lot of time and effort. We also know that finding the right size shoes for your growing child’s feet can be a confusing and stressful process without expert store supervision.

So we’ve endeavoured to make finding your children’s correct shoe size for online purchasing as simple as we can – with our handy printable measuring chart.

Just print off this Size Guide, follow its simple instructions and let it guide you towards the best size for your child’s shoes or wellington boots*.

 

PODIATRIST APPROVED


Some of our children and teenager’s school shoes are designated ‘Podiatrist Approved’. This means that these cool shoes have been approved by the South African Podiatry Association for having a wider fit, being lighter and more flexible. These features encourage strong foot growth and provide more comfort for children – essential in a child’s school shoe.

 

INDUSTRY STANDARDS


All children’s shoe manufacturers have their own different sizing system so there is no uniform industry standard size scale. But if you are more familiar with other manufacturer’s width fittings, this table might provide you with useful comparisons for each of our children’s shoe styles.
