I remember at 2 I started buying shoes from the US for DD2 as she had gone up into the next sizing bracket and I could not get age appropriate shoes for her, so maybe size 8?

She was/is however way above average height/weight.

I can't remember what size my kids wore then. But for comparison, my 3.2 year old just went into size 7.

I don't think 5.5 is small for a just turned 2 year old. There was an 18 month old in the shoe shop who measured as a size 2. She was tiny though!

DD3 is 2.2 years. In a size 8-9 depending on the brand/style.

All of my kids started out in a size 5 when they first started walking! They have big feet. lol

We bought DS size 6.5 at just on two.

Four months later, he's well and truly size 7... an 8 in some styles.

He wears mostly size 2 clothes, but size 1 shorts as he's very skinny and all pants fall down unless belted or has elastic tighteners.

At any one time, my kids shoe sizes seems to vary by about 4 sizes, totally depends on where you buy them. My 3.5 year old currently has shoes from size 7 to size 11. At 2 he had one pair of shoes and they were size 6.

My DD was still in 4 but was only 84cms tall at the time, so quite short. But now at 2.5 she is in a size 5 and a few inches taller now, nice little growth spurt.

I think it is about an average size for a 2 yo.  My 18 month old wears a 4.5 or 5 at the moment depending on shoe brand.

There was an 18 month old in the shoe shop who measured as a size 2. She was tiny though!

This is my DD except she is even smaller... She is a size 0-1 at 17 months and has worn out about 4 pairs of prewalkers as I haven't been able to find a pair of proper shoes to fit her yet... I reckon she is still about 6 months off going into a size 3 which is where I think most toddler shoes start.

DS is a 7-8 at 3 1/2 so also small feet but nowhere near as small as DD!

My DS was size 7 at 2 yo. Average height but big feet!

DS was Size 9 when turning 2

He is now nearly 3 and has a size 11,5 with a J width. Absolute pain to find good shoes because of the width of his feet. Though his feet aren't that wide, his instep is just very high. It's basically a thick over developed muscle from toe walking.

Even Clarke's didn't fit him. He now is going to see a podiatrist to see if we can get special made shoes made for him that will fit like a glove and force his heel on the ground.

My DS is 2 and 1 month about to go into size 9 shoes, however he is 98cm tall and 17kgs.... so well above average....

My DD has just turned 2 and is a size 3-4. I'd say 5 is pretty average.

My DD would have been about a 5.  But again,  it varies so much.  She wears about a 6 at almost 3.  She is tiny at 11kg & 86cm.

My DD turned 2 today and I brought here some size 5 shoes. Smaller than Dd1 at this age but still pretty average I think.

DS is 2 years, 2 months and he measures a size 8 but wears a size 9. He's wearing size 3 shirts, and 2 pants.

My DD turned 2 yesterday and we went shoe shopping today. We brought a size 6.

DD turned 2 last week and has been in a size 6.5 since 22 months. She is 75th percentile for height. Her foot is very narrow (D fitting) and the only shoes that fit her are Clarks. I think kids seem to vary in width as much as they do in length.

I'm just about to buy my 12 month old boys size 5 shoes.
Girls do tend to be a bit shorter though. What percentile is she on the growth chart? I think feet are supposed to be 1/2 their adult size at age 2.

I bought DS new shoes a couple of weeks ago. Size 5.5, he's just turned two.
He's not a big boy though, 86cm and 11kgs.

DS was a size 7.5 at 2 yo
He's now a size 11 and 3.5 yo

He's on the 90th percentile for height and average for weight.
