my 13yo DS wears size 13.5. He is about 5'6" and as we come from the land of giants I believe he as well as his brother will be over 6'5' and DD will probably be a lanky 6'. I know I should be investing in Basket balls....

My DAUGHTER is 9 and is wearing an 8-8.5 women's shoe. She is also tall, and will probably be much taller than me (I'm 5'6"). I wear a 9.5-10 so I fully expect her to wear a 10.

Yikes!

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.

My 14 yo DS wears size 13 shoes. I really hope they are done growing. He's been that size for about a year now.

He had a huge growth spurt about 9 months ago and went from 5" 9" to 6" 1" sine then.

My sons are still little, but I can tell you about my husband. He wore a size 11 shoe when he was 11, 12 at 12, 13 at 13 and 14 at 14. He is currently 6'4" and wears a size 15 shoe.

My DS is 10 and now wears a size 10 Mens! Big feet! Same size as his dad..
My DD is 12 and now wears a size 8-8 1/2 Womens! Same size as me..

I'm thinking that they are both going to hit a growth spurt soon (they're the size height) and pass us both up! DH's brothers are both well over 6' even though he somehow got the short end of the stick and is 5'9

My eight year old son wears a size six in men's shoes. Considering the ages and sizes you all are throwing out I'm starting to get really scared.

Just for a diff spin; dh is about 5'10 and wears a 12.5, ds is 8 and has size 6 mens, then my oldest at 20 (first husband, different father) is a size 11 and 6'4" so height is not always equated to foot size...some people just have big old feet

My son is 12, 5' 4 1/2", I am 5'6" and his father is 6'.

He is wearing a boys/mens, whatever they call it, 7.5 now, but I think he coudl still wear 7 in some brands. He has just begun puberty this year

My DD (will be 9 in Nov) just moved to size 7 in womens. She was a 6 last month...
No one had shoes in kids that would fit her (think Hannah Montana, High School Musical, really sparkley etc) because no one's kids (7 different stores) went up past 5.
We bought plain white sneakers and glitter painted them and stuck on gems (JIC anyone is in my predicament)

My daughter wears a 7 and she is twelve. She is tall for her age though. I wear a 9 so she will be wearing my shoes before too long.

My 15yo is 5'2" and wears an 8.5 to 9 womens' shoe. My 12yo dd is 5'0" and wears a size 7.5 womens' shoe.

I'm 5'2 and wear a size 5.5 womens' shoe.

My 15yo keeps hoping that her big(ger) feet mean that she's not done growing yet. We shall see...but it's not like her genetics bring a lot of height to the table, yk?

(FWIW, my 15yo would, if allowed, buy size 10 shoes just so they look all clunky and feel all "comfy," unless, of course, she has to walk any distance in them).

My almost 9 yo dd wears a women's 7.5.

When I told my mom she replied: Oh poor her, she'll wear 8.5 like us, there is never any left in that size when they go on sale. The curse of average feet.

I had to giggle when I read this. When my son was 9 he had size 10 feet. They are now 10.5-11 and he is only 11.
DH has 13-13.5
I remember thinking wow.. big boy shoes and then I saw how much more men's shoes were...

My Ds (12.5) wears a size 10.5 shoe also. He has longggg skinny feet though

I am 5'9 and he is 5'8

He is 142 pounds. Just had a checkup and the doctor said he is in the 97th percentile for height/weight. (All 3 of my kids have been from the very beginning.

And I have always felt soooo tall. Until now
