  • Yikes. I thought my son was big. He's 8 1/2 and in a 3 1/2 shoe. By the summer it will probably be a size 4.
    My almost 10yo daughter only wears a size 1.

  • No my 7 yr old wears a size 3 in girls. But my 9 yr old wears a 6 in women shoes. All kids are different and go through growth spurts and different times. I would not worry too much, if still concerned ask doctor.

  • OMG I think this post just made me cry...I am only a size 6...I have been a size 6 since like 5th grade :-( All your kids can wear the nice shoes and always find them with their size 8 feet :-(

  • I think so, my son still wears kids so I don't know how it translates over. He wears a 5 in big kids.
