Example: Paul's feet are 10.6 cm. Plus the free space of 1.5 cm this makes 12.1 cm.
So Paul needs size 20/21.

POLOLO SOFT indoor shoes are handmade, so the sole lengths can vary slightly.
To determine the correct shoe size, please place your children’s feet upright on a piece of paper and draw around them with a pen. Add a thumb width (1.2 – 1.5 cm) tolerance. Please make sure that the toes are “stretched” in a relaxed manner. All children are individuals and therefore different, so the age indications are not binding!

Check shoe sizes from time to time while wearing them – children’s feet sometimes grow quickly:
To check the size in between, simply turn the POLOLO SOFT shoes inside out and bring the insole out. The imprint from the big toe can usually be seen very clearly after some time of wearing. If it is already well in front, congratulations! Your child then has grown again – and needs the next size 🙂

Kindergarten Slippers

sizes inner sole length
24/25 15.7 cm
26/27 17.0 cm
28/29 18.5 cm
30/31 19.5 cm
32/33 21.0 cm
Example: Irma's feet are 13.7 cm. Plus the free space of 1.5 cm this makes 15.2 cm.
So Irma needs size 24/25.

Our KIGA shoe styles have a felt insole and a slip-resistant, water-repellent TPR outsole.
This ensures particularly slip-resistant, warming and at the same time breathable protection for the tender feet of kindergarten and school children, but of course also for use at home. They are not suitable for permanent outdoor use!

To determine the correct shoe size, please place your children’s feet upright on a piece of paper and draw around them with a pencil. Add a thumb width (1.2-1.5 cm) tolerance. Please make sure that the toes are “stretched” in a relaxed manner.

MINI Outdoor / Learning to walk Shoes size 20-27

size inner sole length
20 12.3 cm
21 13.0 cm
22 13.6 cm
23 14.0 cm
24 14.8 cm
25 15.8 cm
26 16.6 cm
27 17.0 cm

Our first walker’s MINI shoe styles have a very flexible sole.
To find the right shoe size, please put your children’s feet upright on a piece of paper and draw around them with a pen. Add a thumb width (1.2-1.5 cm) tolerance. Please make sure that the toes are “stretched” in a relaxed manner. We work with Spanish lasts, so our shoe sizes tend to be smaller than those of other manufacturers.

Example: Mika's feet are 12.3 cm. Plus the free space of 1.5 cm this makes 13.8 cm.
So Mika needs size 23.

24 15.3 cm
25 15.9 cm
26 16.5 cm
27 17.3 cm

29 18.2 cm
30 19.1 cm
31 19.7 cm
32 20.3 cm
33 21,0 cm
34 21.6 cm
Example: Greta's feet are 17 cm. Plus the free space of 1.5 cm this makes 18.5 cm.
So Greta needs size 30.

Our MAXI outdoor shoe collection is suitable for “larger kids” – the soles are also wonderfully flexible but a little stronger and therefore more suitable for already experienced walkers (so, not necessarily to be worn at the age of learning to walk).

When buying MAXI street shoes, please pay attention to the length of the insoles to find the right size. To determine the right shoe size, please put your children’s feet upright on a piece of paper and draw around them with a pencil. Add a thumb width (1.2 cm) tolerance. Please make sure that the toes are “stretched” in a relaxed manner.

P.S.: The „Monte“ and „Loma“ MAXI styles are slightly larger. Lined winter shoes should be bought slightly larger.

POLOLO‘s felt slippers are made from Tyrolean wool felt.
These slippers nestle wonderfully against the foot and are super comfortable!

In order to determine the correct felt shoe size, please place your children’s feet upright on a piece of paper and draw around them with a pen. Add a thumb width (1.2 cm) tolerance. Please make sure that the toes are “stretched” in a relaxed manner.

How to determine the correct shoe size if there is no POLOLO retailer available nearby:

Please refer to our children’s shoe size chart when buying online!

To determine the right shoe size, please place your child’s feet upright on a piece of paper and draw around them with a pencil.
Please make sure that the toes are “stretched” in a relaxed manner.
Then measure the foot drawing from the heel to the longest toe in centimetres with a ruler.
Please add at least 1.2 to max. 1.7 cm tolerance for the toe clearance.
Children’s feet grow by two to three shoe sizes a year in the first few years. Therefore you should check the shoe size every 3 to 4 months to make sure that the foot is not constricted.

When you receive the shoes or if you want to check the size/length when they are already worn:
Normally, the insoles of almost all POLOLO street shoes are removable. Put your child’s feet on them and simply check whether the length is still OK.

Service: If you have any questions or are not quite sure, just send us an eMail or give us a call – we’ll be happy to help you!

Another brief advice: Lined shoes should be bought larger, because the 100% wool-lining makes the shoe interior smaller. Almost all POLOLO outdoor shoes have a removable insole – so you can check the fit again from time to time, because children’s feet grow!
