A step by step process

Having your child’s shoes fitted in a CFHR member store is the best way to ensure the best fit. Trained shoe fitters will use a foot measuring gauge to check the length, width and depth of your child’s feet – these are all vital in making sure that their shoes fit well. But measurement is only a guide – the most important part is checking the shoes when they are on the foot.

They will check:

a
The shoe is the right length and there is the correct amount of growing room
b
The shoe is the best width with no pressure on the sides of the foot
c
The shoe is the correct depth for the right fit and comfort
d
That the top of the shoe wraps neatly around the ankle bone and will not rub
e
That the shoe grips the child’s heel shape well
f
That when walking the child moves easily and naturally in the shoes
