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!

  • We use genuine wool (from controlled organic husbandry) for our lined shoes, which offer a cosy and warming feeling.
  • The lined En Fant rubber boots run small!

  • The POLOLO shoes for toddlers, made of leather, SEAQUAL® YARN or organic cotton, have double sizes.
  • They are hand-sewn, so sizes and millimetre measurements may vary within the sizes.
  • Please note for the POLOLO “Toddlers” models: For better insulation and to keep the feet warm, we have included a high-quality insole made of felt/leather. This insole is slightly shorter than the inner sole area, so as not to take up too much foot space.
