How to Convert Your Shoe Size from Child Size to Adult Size

Here is how to convert your shoe size from Child Size to Adult Size in inches.   Manufacturers use different lasts to construct their shoes, and sizing may vary accordingly.

Make sure you are standing, wearing the socks or stockings you will wear with your new shoes.

Step on a piece of paper and trace around each foot with a pencil.

Use a tape measure or ruler to measure the length of each foot.

The measurement of the larger foot is the one you should go by to find your proper size.

Using the following charts, convert your inches measurement to your U.S. shoe size or Euro shoe size. Using Zappos Size Conversion Chart we’ll break it down for you using the following examples:

 

Example: Girl Youth Size 7 to Women’s Size:

  • Go to Chart 2 Youth Sizes and look across the size 7 row in US Sizes and you’ll see that a size 7 youth foot is 9.75″.
  • Go to Chart 1 and look for 9.75″ in the Inches column. We see that 9.75″ measures somewhere in between a Size 8.5 and a 9 on the Women’s size chart.
  • You always want to fit your larger size foot and the best way to do that is to measure both feet.
  • In this case she is in-between sizes so it would be best to order both the 8.5 and the 9 to see which size fits better.

Youth Size 7 = Women’s Size 8.5-9

11.5 42 9.5 10.6875″ 27.1
12 42-43 10 10.875″ 27.6

 

Example: Woman Size 5 to find her size equivalent in the Youth size:

  • The corresponding size in inches is 8.5.”
