My three year old wears a size 13 shoe! Is this normal?!

Yeah... you heard right. A SIZE 13!!! His doctor says he is just a tall kid, but he is the same height as a 7 year old we know! I'm 6 feet and his dad is around 5'9. My 3 year old comes up to my waist! Just wanted to see if there were any other moms who have/ had boys with a larger foot.

  • No but nothing wrong with it either (assuming he's a healthy weight for his height?)

  • It's normal for him. My 11 year old is 5'6 and wears a size 10 mens shoe. That's big for most boys his age, and he's always been tall. I'm 5'5 and his dad was 6'. I expect him to easily pass 6' at this rate.

  • Size 13 is a bit on the large side for a three-year-old--my five-year-old wears a nine--but if your kid is a good weight for his height, it's fine. I bet you have a hard time finding shoes with characters on them for toddlers, though.

  • My son was about that size when he was 3. His foot growth slowed down at around size 2 but now he is 8 years old and wears a size 6.

  • I thought my five year old DD had big feet. She is 5.5 and in a size 12. However, I am comparing her to her brother who has small feet! He is almost 9 and JUST made it into a size 1. lol. So happy to be out of the toddler shoes!

  • It's normal for your child. My 12 year old is in a eight and a half men's. Not even a teenager yet.
