just trying to get a comparison to see if dds feet are small or average. I just bought her size 5 1/2 sandals
Posted 17 November 2012 - 08:34 PM
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.

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....
Posted 17 November 2012 - 09:34 PM
My DD has just turned 2 and is a size 3-4. I'd say 5 is pretty average.
Posted 17 November 2012 - 09:43 PM
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.
Posted 17 November 2012 - 09:51 PM
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.
Posted 17 November 2012 - 10:01 PM
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.
Posted 17 November 2012 - 10:05 PM
My dd about to turn 2 is a size 4-5 depending on brand but she is petite
Posted 17 November 2012 - 10:25 PM
My DD turned 2 yesterday and we went shoe shopping today. We brought a size 6.
Posted 18 November 2012 - 08:47 AM
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.
Posted 18 November 2012 - 09:32 AM
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.
Posted 18 November 2012 - 10:55 AM
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.
Posted 18 November 2012 - 10:59 AM
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.
