Wow, those are some big feet smile.gif.  My ds will be 9 soon and he's in a size 3.5 or 4.  Dd is 6-1/2 and wears a size 13.

DD1 is 8.5 and wears a size 1.5 shoe. She is average height but small feet, my 4y wears a size 12 so not so small!

Dd is 9.5.   Her shoe size is a 35 European or 3 US.  Her feet look big to me for her size.  Nothing close to a 7, though!!  I wear a 7.5, so your dd could probably wear some of MY shoes!

 

ETA:  sorry, didn't realize you were just wanting shoe size.

I wear an 11 now & distinctly remember being 9 or 10 & wearing larger sizes than my mom.

Ds started wearing my shoes this spring.  He was 9 1/2 yo and kids' size 5 which is the same as a women's size 7.

i think from when dd was what 3 or 4 her shoe size went up every 6 months. and then i think they slowed down probably the last couple of years of maybe once a year.

 

but yeah this is the time of her growth spurt. she literally can gain 2 inches in a week. i discovered that by accident. her friend went away for a week. before he left they measured themselves (they are 9 days apart in age) and when he came back the difference in height absolutely caught your eyes.

Ds is 10 and wears a men's size 8 (or a women's size 10).

Dd is 7 and wears a girl's size 4.

 

We've got big feet in our family. I wore a women's size 10 when I was 10. My feet stayed that size until I had kids. I'm now an 11. I'm expecting ds to top out at a men's 13 or 14. Dd at a women's 10.

During my dd 5th grade yr she went from a size 5 to a 8.5!
Big jump in clothing size. From a 10 to a 14. She's almost in the teen stuff, just no hips to hold the pants up.

No, I was just saying what her clothes sizes are and I said that I hope she never wears the same sized clothes that I do now (I'm out of shape).  That's all.  It wasn't anything, just more info than you were asking for.  My dd is a bit smaller than other girls her age, but very strong and healthy, and I was saying that she seems to be more the size of a young 8 yo, rather than someone on their way to 10 and I couldn't imagine her wearing my shoes any time soon.

OK, I'll give you a story .... when I was 10, I went to buy shoes with my mom. The sales clerk asked what size I wore. I said "10". He looked at me and said "No!" He had to measure my feet before he believed us! Yeah guy, I was 10, but I had big feet.

wow wait lynn i just realised. your feet were done growing by the time you were 10. wow!!!! and then after kids. woah perhaps dd's will stop growing soon too. 

 

i dont remember by shoe size but i know i think i was done growing by 5th or 6th grade. i was the tallest in lower elementary school and by the end i was one of the shortest .

I also remember wearing my mom's shoes in 5th grade, she wore an 8.5, I wore a 9.5 until having kids, 10.5 now. Similar story to meemee about height, tall in elem school, and then never grew after early middle school. I'm 5'5. I think my DD1 will end up around my height, she has my build, just not my huge feet, thank goodness!

My DD (9) wears a 4 or 4.5.  She can fit in my sister's shoes perfectly, and she wears a 6 or 6.5.

post #15 of 37

My oldest son is 8.5 and wears a 2 or 2.5. My second is 5.5 and wears a 1.5-- they can wear each others shoes in a pinch. I don't think his feet have grown much in the past 2 years, he's worn out shoes before outgrowing them. He is tall and thin, our shirts are almost the same size (he just got a down vest that I'm totally going to borrow this fall!)

My 8-yo DD is tiny, and wears a size 12.5 - 13.  She is still in slim 6 or slim 7, and is only about 46-47 lbs.  I am starting to wonder how small she may be as an adult!  All three of my kids are small for age.  DH and I are on the smaller side of average-ish  (5'8" for him, and 5'4" for me).

My 8/12 year old DD is about a 1, and 5 1/2 year old DS wears about a 12 or 12 1/2.  They're small, but so are DP and I, so no surprises there.

post #18 of 37

My daughter is 9 and wears a shoe size 3/4 depending on the type of shoe. I wear a size 5 shoe. She and I can now share shoes and she is only in the 4th grade. I thought HER feet were big for her age but now I'm seeing that isn't so. lol.

post #19 of 37

My Ds is 9 1/2 and wears a men's size 7.
