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:

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