Did you know designers and brands are making kids’ shoes that look identical or very similar to their women’s shoe designs, but typically at a lower price point? It’s true, and finding your women’s to kids’ shoe size conversion can save you loads of money.

Kids’ shoes sizes are split into two categories: Toddler and youth (or “kids” shoes). Youth sizes run from size 3.5 to 7. You can convert women’s shoe sizes to kids’ shoe sizes, but not toddler sizes.

Ladies, if you wear a size 8.5 or smaller in shoes, you’re in luck. Men, you’re only lucky if you wear a size 7 shoe. Check it out:

 

Women’s to kids’ shoe size conversion chart

Here’s the formula: Your Shoe Size – 2 = Your Youth Size

To convert your women’s size to a youth size, simply subtract 2 sizes. For example, a women’s size 7 shoe is equivalent to a youth (“kids”) size 5 shoe.
