Size Guide

The correct size

At Pisamonas, we know that choosing the correct size for your kids can sometimes seem like a mammoth task. s well as growing at lightning speed, so that within a blink of an eye shoes that were perfect for them a moment ago are suddenly too tight, different shoe models fit differently due to factors like the design, the tree and the material of each shoe. That’s why, as well as offering you services that allow you to easily exchange or return a shoe if you've bought a size that doesn't fit your little one, we’ve got a comprehensive and trustworthy size guide for shoes for babies, kids and adults. Pisamonas provides footwear for your kids throughout their infancy and teenage years, with a whole range of models for babies, from newborns to pre-walkers, kids and teenagers. But it doesn't end there, as we also have various items in large sizes for mums and dads, like espadrilles, Menorcan sandals, sandals, trainers and desert boots. In this section, we’ll show you a generic table of sizes of the measurement in centimetres of the inner sole of each shoe size, according to the official standard measurements in the industry. What’s more, for each of the products on our site, as well as photos, colours, and a description of each product, you’ll find a size guide that’s specific to each one, as well as different relevant information. This includes whether they run larger or smaller than normal, if they have a wide base and are especially for chunkier feet or if, thanks to their material, they can shrink when washed, meaning we recommend you opt for the larger size if you're unsure which one to go for.

Shoe size guide

This table is generic and for guidance, and shows the official standard measurements in the industry.

To be extra sure of the shoe size you should choose when considering a specific product, we recommend you look at the specific table for that shoe, which you’ll find next to the product description.Thanks to the composition, design, use and even fabric from which they've been made, certain shoes can have differences measurements, range of sizes and other variations on the generic table.

In cases in which the table for the product you're considering is larger or smaller than the one you see here, it means that the model runs larger or smaller than normal, so we recommend you select a size which fits their exact measurements.

Tips for choosing the correct size

Guía de tallas de zapatos Pisamonas

As you know, when you buy kid’s footwear, choosing the right size is extremely important, as that will dictate your children’s comfort. Children’s shoes shouldn’t be too tight or too lose to avoid deformities, injuries, twisted ankles or any other issues whilst they’re growing. To help you with this as much as we can, we’ve got some tips:

-Try the shoe on them when they’re wearing a sock, and check if the tips of their toes are approximately 0.5 centimetres from the toes of the shoe. Remember that it’s not a good idea to buy a larger size under the impression that it will last longer if they’re not comfortable and could end up being injured.

-Get them to try shoes on in the afternoon as during the day feet expand a little due to heat. That way, you’ll know that they’ll be comfortable in the shoes after a long day.

-Check their shoes regularly and ask them how comfortable they are to check they’re always wearing the size they need, making sure the correct development of the feet isn’t affected.

How to measure children´s feet

Cómo medir pies niños Pisamonas

To correctly measure small children's feet and find out what size is right for them, the best thing to do is start by finding out the size of a shoe that fits them well and that they feel comfortable in. With a ruler, measure the insole (never the outer side of the sole) of said shoe and compare it with our table of sizes.

--If you don’t have a ruler to hand or if you aren’t sure that you've reached the toes inside the shoe, we're going to show you the typical way to find out the measurement straight from your child’s foot. For this, place their foot on a piece of paper and follow these steps:

1- Place the heel and the sheet of paper against the wall.

22- Make sure the weight is fully on the sole of the foot, and that it’s straight. Remember that if they don’t put their weight on it or have their toes screwed up then the measurement will be incorrect.

3-Make a mark where the longest toe ends, and measure (in centimetres) the distance, in a straight line, between the edge of the paper that was against the wall and the mark next to their toe.

4- 4- Compare this measurement in centimetres with the table of sizes for the product you want to buy and round up to the size higher than your measurement, as it’s best for them to have about 0.5 centimetres of space, as explained earlier.

5- If the foot measurement has come out at, say, 15.3, you should go for size 25, which corresponds to 15.7. If, however, you get 15.6, it’s probably better for you to opt for size 26, as 25 will be a little tight. If you have to go for, as in this last case, a size that’s a little too big, you can fix the problem by adding an extra insole so that it’s a tighter fit.

Shoe sizes according to age

Tallas de zapatos según edades Pisamonas

-Newborns: their first baby shoes are mainly there to protect them against the cold, and knocks or scrapes. This is the phase of booties, or shoes for pre-walkers. The first months of their lives are when the musculature and bones in the feet develop, leading slowly but surely towards their first steps. The sizes for this initial stage range from 16 to 19 and are soft, flexible baby shoes with soft soles, made of breathable, natural materials.

-First steps: from 10-12 months the baby starts to stand upright, support their own weight, and their musculature starts to develop. For this phase, children’s sizes range from roughly 18 to 26 and grow between 2 and 3 sizes every year until they reach the age of 4. That means they change sizes every 4-5 months! However, that depends on each child as some can remain the same size for 6 months before having a growth spurt. That’s why it’s important to be sure that your little one is always wearing the right size and that their shoes are never too big or too small. What’s more, and especially during this stage of development, it’s important not to use inherited shoes which have been used by brothers or cousins, as each child has a different way of walking, and using shoes that are already molded to another child’s feet could affect their correct development.

-Children and teenagers: from 5 to 12, your kids will be walking almost as grown-ups do, and the range of sizes could be anywhere from 28 to higher than 40, depending on their height. They’ll keep growing a few sizes per year, so our tips for this phase are the same as those for the previous one.
