we also realize that shoe sizing should not just be length and width, as feet are 3-dimensional objects! our shoes come with interchangeable velcro straps (aka tabs) that come in 4 sizes for a more complete fit. use a smaller tab for a narrower fit, or a longer tab for a higher instep or wider fit.
We carry four tab sizes; Small, Medium, Large, and X-Large. Below are the tab sizes recommended for each shoe size. Our sizing is based on a medium width kids' foot.
|tab sizing chart|
|tab size||shoe size||tab length (in)||tab length (mm)|
|small||6-9||3 ½"||90 mm|
|large||13-3||4 ⅓"||110 mm|
|extra-large||3.5-4.5, high instep, orthotic||5"||125 mm|
If your child has a more fuller foot or a higher instep, you may need to go up a tab size. If your child has a very narrow foot or low instep, you may want to go down a size. You know your kids feet the best, so trust your instincts! Different size tabs are available separately, check out our tab selection.
