My 11 year old son is wearing a men's size 8, and the price jump from boys to men shocked the you know what out of me. He is 4'11.5" and weighs in at 95lbs.
My nine year old daughter wears a womens size 7, and is 4'11, and weighs 75lbs. She has an inch to go before she is taller than her grandmother (my mom) and her feet are already bigger. I was 12 when I reached those milestones against my mom. She has "started" and while I am not starving her, we are encouraging her to stay slim with activities to keep her curves under control for a few more years.
Our youngest is only three and he wears a youth size 1. I am scared...very scared.
I am 5'9" and wear a women's size 10... or 11 depending. My husband is 6'2" and wears a men's size 10.5.
