My daughter has been diagnosed with Idiopathic Toe Walking (tip toes rather than walking flat footed) we have been to many expensive appointments to correct this and no specialist could help. I've had your squeakers on her for an hour and she's walking flat footed to get her shoes to squeak so THANK YOU!!!!"
Samantha, thank you for sharing Sophie’s story with us! You have made us very proud that we have been able to help!
The "squeak" in our shoes is only activated when the correct heel-to-toe walking action is performed - hence the child receives positive reinforcement (in the form of a cute squeak!) when they are walking correctly. We as adults may find the squeak somewhat annoying at times - and that is why the shoes are designed to have a removable squeak
Not sure what size to buy? Check out our size guide below but remember this is only a guide as children grow at their own pace.
We have found the easiest way to determine size is to measure the child’s foot from heel to big toe along the sole of the foot. Please remember to measure both feet as one is normally longer. Add 1-1.5cm extra onto the measurement for growing room.
Of course if the shoe is a surprise gift please use our age guide.
Size 3 to suit 9-12 month olds (sole length 14cm)
Size 4 to suit 9-16 month olds (sole length 14.5cm)
Size 5 to suit 12-18 month olds (sole length 15cm)
Size 6 to suit 18-24 month olds (sole length 15.5cm)
Size 7 to suit 2-3 years old (sole length 16cm)
Still not sure what size you need? Then download our Printable Size Chart to measure your child's feet against our sole sizes.
If you purchase the wrong size? We are happy to replace them for you. Just return the original pair in an unused condition and we will send you a replacement pair for the cost of the postage.
And remember, if you are unsure, it is always better to buy a size larger to let feet grow into the shoe.
