Measuring your child’s feet at home with a FOOter Family Foot Measure

Childrens feet grow to bloomin fast as far as I’m concerned, shoe buying has almost becoming part of our weekly shop. My problem is it’s a 25 mile round trip to the nearest shop that can measure their feet so it makes sense for me to buy from the internet, but it can be a little hit or miss whether you get the right size.

I’ve tried everything from printing out paper shoe size guides to borrowing friends shoes to see what size my guys have sprouted into. Which is neither reliable or cost-effective when you still end up buying the wrong size.

So, what are my other options?

Well a FOOter Family Foot Measure will do the trick, this handy little device is perfect for a quick check of your children’s feet,

      I think my favourite was being able to store it away easily.

      It is, especially when you get caught out with a growth spurt!

    What a great idea! Must be so handy to have – I always seems to find shoes in the sale online but then can’t buy then because I am not sure what ize my boys are without having to take them to be measured. This would solve that problem! #TriedTested

      Thats why I’m finding it useful, I love sales shopping especially shoes!

    Oooh I love this!! We have a problem getting Mini M to go get his feet measured due to my shifts and Mr M not being able to drive. this would be great for us to have. At least then when I’m on a day off and he’s at nursery I can go get his shoes #triedtested

    A great little device however I’ve found that shoe sizes seem to change from store to store anyway so I guess it’s only ever a guide.
    Thanks for linking up your review with #TriedTested this week.

    This looks brill. We do have a Clarks nearby but I always feel obliged to buy when they get their feet measured! #triedtested
