How can I ensure the best fit i order from foot locker?

Purchasing online can be a guessing game, especially when you're purchasing for a child. Since size and fit is a big part of that, Foot Locker offers printable sizing charts to help lessen the worry of a later return or exchange. If you're still unsure, contact Foot Locker at 1.800.991.6815. Remember, kids' grow fast, so make sure you measure every time you order.

 For length, pinch flat about a thumb's width of material from the longest toe to the front of the shoe (about 3/8 inch to 1/2 inch). The toes should all be lying flat and there should be wiggle room.

For width, you should be able to pinch just a little upper material. If the shoe feels tight and widths aren't available, order a 1/2 size larger. After your child has worn the shoe for a bit, check for severe redness. This could mean the shoe is too tight.

Always be sure to measure both feet; many children have feet of different sizes. If that's the case with your child, purchase shoes in the larger of the two sizes.
