When shopping for children's shoes online, or around the world, the numbers can get kind of confusing; in addition to manufacturer's variations, there are different shoe size charts.

The following chart will help you convert kids' shoe sizes, but remember, the best way to get the proper fit is by having your child try on the shoes, or to measure your child's feet and compare those measurements to the size charts offered by the manufacturer.

If you do consider buying shoes online, be sure to check for a return policy in case the shoes don't fit.
