I just got my sons soccer cleats today and he is a size 10! He is only 12yo. My husband feet are only 9.5. My son is now the same height as me 5'5". My DH is 5'7". DS is just starting puberty and I'm wondering just how tall or how big his feet will get. It is a little freaky that he may tower over both of us and stomp us with his giant feet!:

So how big is your preteen/teens feet?

Wow! My feet were size 10 until I was pregnant with him then they grew and are now size 11. I don't want his big feet to be from me. LOL!

This is my oldest of 3 boys and I am terrified of how much food they will consume when they all hit puberty.

My twin sons wore size 10 at age 10; now they are almost 14, and wear size 12.5. They were 5'11" last time I measured them.

Almost 12yo DS is 4'6" and wears a size 4 1/2 shoe.
I know once I buy him Fall/Winter shoes he'll have a growth spurt and they'll last about a week!
13yo DD is 5'6" and wears a woman's size 8 1/2 shoe.
The good news with her is that they've been that size for almost 2 years so hopefully she's done growing. She's also been in the same jeans size for almost a year.
Phew.
Those post-shopping growth spurts drive me nuts!

DD is 13 and wear 9.5-10 womens (she's 5'8"). Her bio father wore, I think, 8 mens and I wear 10 womens. He was 5'10" and I'm 5'9". My 11 year old DS hasn't hit any big growth spurts yet, so he's kinda short and wears a size 5 mens.

My 12 y.o. ds wears a 8.5 men's shoe, but he has not even begun puberty. He broke his toes a while back and the doc who did the x-rays said he has the biggest growth plate she had ever seen. His uncle wears a 15 and my dh wears a 13.

My 10 dd wears a 8.5 ladies and my 7 y.o. dd wears a 5.0 ladies, the same as I do.

My ds is 15, wears a size 14EEE, or in some brands, 15. I got his football cleats off Ebay, there are a lot of sellers who buy odd lots of large size shoes for dirt cheap and resell them. I got him a brand new pair of cleats, good quality that fit perfectly, for less than $30, shipping included. There is no way I could buy a pair locally for less than a few hundred.

One thing ds really misses is roller blades. I found a few sites online that sell large sizes, but his feet are really, really wide and odd shaped. I think we're going to have to get a custom pair made, ouch $.

My dd is 8.5, up to my shoulders (I'm 5'7") and wears a size 2 shoe. She is so thin though and she still fits a child size 8 around, but the pants that size are like capris on her

We just bought cleats for my son last week and he wears a 9 in mens at 13 (just turned 13) He wore a size 6 last season. (and his feet grew 2 sizes in a month because I ordered the cleats from the outfitter. By the time equipment came in-they were too little.) We were having a hard time finding him shoes because he has wide "Fred Flintstone" feet. Now that he wears a bigger size it will be easier to get him wide width shoes. DS is only 5'1 atm.

Another teammate wears a 16! His dad is having a horrible time finding him cleats. That boy is only 14 and still growing. His brother is 6'5 at 16. I think my son's friend is 6'1 or 2.

DD, 15, wears between a 6 and a 7 in ladies depending on the cut of the shoe. She is 5'2.

My oldest DS is almost 11, (in Nov.) and he wears a 6 1/2 Men! I couldn't believe it. I'm 5'7 and he hit me about the mouth. I wear a size 9-10 depends on the shoe but my DH has pretty large feet, a size 13 so looks like our poor DS will have giant feet, hope he grows into them.

My son just turned 13 and he wears a Men's size 6 1/2. He'll wear a size 7 soon. He's 5 feet, 5 1/2 inches. I remember when I was 13- I only wore Men's/Boy's sneakers. Size 5. I was 5 foot 4 inches when I was that age.

I pray for the day Family Court recognizes that CHILDREN have rights, parents only have PRIVILEGES.  Only then, will I know my child is safe.

My son is 11 and wears a men's 7 or 7 1/2---both of which are really hard to find. I was horrified at the beginning of the summer when I realized we had to start shopping in the men's shoe section. Horrified by the jump in price!

My 13yo's feet are about the same size as mine- we both wear a 6.5 but she needs a medium, I need a wide.

my 12yo only wears a children's 3 (equivilent to a woman's 5) but she's due for a growth spurt!

My 10 year old has size 9 1/2 feet and is 5 feet tall. Makes me wonder if she's gonna be 6 feet tall with size 12s or if she's just almost reached her full size early.

11 yo DD wears a 9-9.5, she's 5'4" and growing like crazy.

She gets her sasquatchness from her mama.

My daughter is almost 12 and tall for her age. I wear a size 9 and she is in a 7-1/2 or 8. Some of my flip flops fit her and keep disappearing into her closet! Should be fun when we wear the same size! I'll never see any of my shoes!

I am in complete awe of this thread!

My DD is only 9 y/o, but she wears a kid's size 12. She's only 4'3", though so she still has a lot of growing (maybe).

DS just turned 14. He is 5'6" and wears size 9 men's shoes. He is a "late bloomer" and hasn't really had a growth spurt of height and/or feet yet, just a wee bit at a time so far.
