Consider Sizing While Shoe Shopping

Dec 22, 2007
Parents are most concerned about the sizing of shoes when they go shoe shopping. It seems that the size of the foot has a great deal to do with the price that is assigned to it. While larger sizes will mean that the child has grown considerably during the last year, the parent hopes that the growth will not be enough to affect the price to the point where the family budget will take a hit because they have grown.

When considering sizing during shoe shopping trips, a parent will take into account the brand of shoes that they will be buying. There are many ways for a parent to size the child's foot, and whether it is a metric shoe size chart or one used by the manufacturer in China or Japan, will determine the actual sizing of the foot when the child places the shoe on the foot. A number 9 in Japan sizing charts could turn out to be a size 10 to the parents of a child living in America.

For children with oversized feet for their age, it may be necessary to consider shoe sizing that is used by large sized adults. While the adolescent age of the child might be 10 at the time, the parent might find that the only footwear that will fit the child will be equal to the size worn by an adult that has reached the age of 50 or more. The parent will of course be grateful to find any shoes that large, but the styling on the shoes that will fit might not fit in with the younger crowd at school.

A parent has to be very careful about sizing shoes when athletic socks will be worn with them. This style of sock is usually very thick and the extra materials in them might require the parent to buy a larger sized shoe to accommodate the extra girth of the foot. The width of the shoe might also have to be reconsidered too because the style of the shoe demands it. The closure device of the shoe might make wearing any type of sock impossible and another style will have to be selected.

Medical problems might affect the size of shoe worn by many members of the family. Some physicians might recommend that a diabetic wear a shoe to help with the circulation of blood and fluids throughout the shoe. The size of the shoe might have changed dramatically due to the swelling that occurs with this disease and others, and the patient will have no other choice but to go shoe shopping just so they can follow the guidelines imposed by their family practitioner.

There are other factors that will affect the sizing of shoes, and while shoe shopping, many parents are faced with finding shoes that can accommodate toes that have an extraordinary length. While shoe shopping, the family might be accustomed to looking for pointed toed shoes because they offer the most room and the wearer is sure to be comfortable while wearing them.
