My 7.5yo wears a toddler's size 13.5! But she is not really short--40th% for height and weight.

grateful mother to DD, 1/04, and DS, 2/08

DS is 7.5 and wears a 1.5 shoe, mostly because he has wide feet. Dad wears a 14 wide... so I have a feeling this is only the beginning!

I wear women's size 10.5 (hard to find) mostly.  My feet were size 10 when I was 10.

DD is 13, wearing women's 7 or 7.5.  Her feet stopped here last year.

DD2 is 11, wearing kids' size 4.5.  I'm expecting her feet to get bigger quickly this year.

DS is 7 1/2, and has very short feet--I just bought him 13 1/2.

DD3 is 5, and has tiny feet, wears size 8.5.  Size 9 is too big.  I have a bag full of size 10 little girl shoes waiting for her to grow!  I keep buying shoes...

DD4 is 2 1/2 and has good sized feet--7 1/2 wide.


DH has small feet for a guy; wears about size 8.5 mens (not wide).    I have big feet.  I'm tall-ish, he's average height.  It really makes an odd mix for our kids.
