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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Flintstone sized! And she's 8! Though it means nothing in regards to her growth. My brother wears size 11s and is only 5'5... on his tippy toes... and that's obviously adding some height!

wow this blows me away. it looks like for many of you, your feet achieved adult size by 10 (not that its a magic #).

 

for some reason i believed our feet grow thru the teenage years. but looking back i remember me never changing sizes when i was a teenager.

My DD is 11 and wears a 3 or 3 1/2 . DS is 8 and wears a 2 1/2. I wear a women's 6 1/2.

 

DD will be short, like me. (5ft 1") but DS is taller than a lot of his classmates but I guess his shoe size is smaller than average.

I wore boys' shoes when I was in elementary school because girls' shoes were too narrow.  I remember wearing a boys' size 6-1/2 when I was in 7th grade.  That is like a women's size 8.  I was 12.  I started puberty around 9/10 years old.  Girls grow up fast, especially in our culture.  Nothing to worry about I would say.  My 7 year old daughter wears a size 2 (girl's).  She was wearing a toddler like 11 last year.
