1 Bump

I want to buy a pr. of converse for my son. the website says it runs half a size large. He is currently 5yrs old and the shoes he's wearing now is a size 12. Should I get a size 12 or 13. will the 13 be too big? Help!

  • Eh.Go for the 13 anyway, he'll fit into them into them soon enough!

  • i always go for bigger, that way if they're a little too big they'll grow into them, rather then them being too small and never being able to wear them or having to return them.

  • Converse kid's sizes really do run up a half size. If he is a twelve the thirteen will certainly be too big for him to wear now. As other's have stated he will grow into them, but if you want him to wear them now with a half size to grow into, get the 12.
