Better fitting shoes

Latest children’s foot size data to help brands and manufacturers

4th October 2018

Since the release of the Global Foot Dimensions report last year, SATRA has been conducting further research on foot measurements with data collected in the UK and US using 3D scanning technology with a sample size of 2,000 children between the ages of four and 15. The results will be published in 2019.

The aim of the new report is to update the industry’s understanding of foot shape and sizing and to enable brands and manufacturers of children’s footwear to offer a greater degree of fit and comfort. The publication will include guidelines for fitting children’s shoes correctly and some background on the development of children’s feet as they grow. Any brands or manufacturers interested in early discussion are invited to contact SATRA at

The current Global Foot Dimensions study - based on foot size data from age 16 and above and captured in the UK, US and China - is available for purchase now by SATRA member companies. More details can be found here
