We get a lot of questions along the lines of:
“Can you recommend what size I should buy for a child aged X months?”
And so here is the long answer to the question, a shorter answer can be found on our FAQs page.
As we all know, babies and toddlers come in all shapes and sizes, so it’s really very difficult to match an age to a size for Bimble shoes. The most accurate way to check the best size is to use our size guide – you can print this out and use it to measure your little one’s feet. Also remember, if you are buying a gift you can purchase a gift card in our shop, which takes away the guesswork, and we also offer free exchanges if the size is wrong.
If you’d still like some guidance on sizes by age, we can offer our best guesses, based on our own children and what our customers have told us.
Our Baby Slipper range (size 1) is aimed at this age group. Newborn babies are likely to be too small but if you are buying a newborn or baby shower gift remember it’s nice to have something for the baby to grow into – most will reach size 1 at around 3 months.
Around this age most babies are getting big enough for our smallest Classic Moccasin, which starts at size 2.
As babies start to become toddlers they will likely move to size 3 or 4.
Most are wearing size 4 or 5 but some can be bigger.
Size 5 or 6 will be your best bet.
3 years +
Most toddlers will grow out of our largest Bimbles by now, though some lucky little ones will still fit our largest size 6.
We hope to extend our range to larger sizes soon, if you would like to be the first to know when new sizes are available make sure you join our mailing list using the form at the bottom of this page.
