Sizing always varies depending on the child. If your child is a medium width, our styles tend to fit true to size, while allowing for room to grow. Wider feet can mean a size up is needed in most cases. Please use our Home Measuring Kit (located at the bottom of the page) to help determine the proper size. And, of course, send us an email or call us to discuss any sizing inquiries.
We do not carry half sizes at this time. Both the Casual and Splashers line are whole sizes only.
For some of our new categories, that might be a possibility!
Of course, there are exceptions, but for the most part, the answer is yes. Typically, we suggest at least one size up and if they are in between sizes, we suggest two sizes. For example, if they measure 8.5, we would suggest the size 10 with an AFO. Please call us with any questions and we are glad to help.
Yes, both the Casual and Splashers lines have removable insoles. The Casual shoes have a leather insole to help with sweat while the Splashers shoes have a padded EVA insole.
For this particular item, we recommend buying it true to size. If a child measures a 9, order the size 9.
Currently, we ship to the US and Canada.
We offer flat rate shipping to the domestic US. If you would like your order expedited, different rates will apply.
