Question: How can I shop online for kids' shoes if I'm unsure of my daughter's shoe size?
Answer: I recommend having your child's foot professionally measured at regular intervals to ensure that she is wearing the right sized shoe. It is important that children's shoes fit well because their feet need good support and room to grow. However, when you are ordering shoes online, and your child hasn't been fitted recently, you'll have to measure her foot yourself.

Good news! Stride Rite has made shopping online for children's footwear worry free. Their handy sizing tool, E-Fit helps you choose the perfect sized shoe for your child in 4 easy steps. All you need is a printer, a piece of paper and your child!

Download and print up the E-Fit sizing chart, and have your child step on the paper. The chart will help you measure the length and width of her foot. Plug the information into the E-Fit tool, and choose what type of footwear you need. Stride Rite's website will then show you what they have available in the size and style that you are looking for. What could be easier?
