  • I buy the correct size. Since kids feet are still growing, getting the wrong size can cause problems later in life. Even if it's a 1/2 size bigger.

  • No, wrong sized shoes can be very bad for their feet as they're growing.

  • it depends. Like winter shoes yes I go half up cause the socks are thicker but lets say springa nd summer shoes I get his correct size. You dont want to always get big shoes your kids will trip a lot..may have to take family trips to the er and dentist lol And if money is a thing you can alwawys go to a second hand store and get shoes cheap...still in good condition. I got some new Nike's for my son from a flea shop!!! $2.50!!!

  • After all of this pro barefoot information I've seen advertised and how wearing shoes causes a lot of health problems I wouldn't think it really mattered.

  • If the price is right I might buy bigger for future use, I always buy the now size for the now wear.

  • I buy the correct size if I want them to wear them now. I only buy bigger shoes for future use (when their feet grow into them).

  • I always buy a 1/2 size bigger. If I buy what fits right now it will not fit them next month.
