Find the right shoe size

Determine the correct shoe size if I don’t have a specialist retailer nearby:

  • Please refer to our children’s shoe size chart when buying online.
  • To determine the correct shoe size, please put your child’s feet on a piece of paper and draw around the outer rim with a pencil.
  • Please make sure that the toes are “stretched out” and that your child is standing correctly.
  • Then measure your foot drawing from the heel to the longest toe in centimetres with a ruler.
  • Please add at least a 1.2 cm tolerance for the toe space.
  • 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 3-4 months to make sure that the foot is not constricted.
  • When you get the shoes, or if you want to check the size/length while wearing them: As a rule, the insoles of almost all POLOLO street shoes are removable. Put your child‘s feet on them and simply check whether the length is 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 more than happy to help!

Another advice: Lined shoes should be bought larger, as the 100% wool lining makes the inside of the shoe smaller. Almost all street shoes at POLOLO have a removable insole – so you can check the fit and especially the size again and again while wearing them, because children’s feet grow!

double sizes

Our hand-made POLOLO shoes are like a second skin that encloses the feet, providing warmth and protection. They are a wonderful alternative to healthy barefoot walking, as POLOLOs allow the feet exactly the freedom of movement that they need for healthy development. As in barefoot walking, the musculature is trained and strengthened in a variety of ways. And strong musculature is the best precondition for healthy and robust feet.

Our shoes for small children like “Toddlers”, “Seaqual” and “Cotton / bio” have double sizes. These shoes are hand made and may therefore differ slightly in their sizing – the centimetres stated are only approximate.
