Foot size isn't everything, & she actually doesn't have very large feet.

I finished growing @ 5'7" (average) and was wearing a size 9 1/2 to 10 when I entered 6th grade @ age 11.

I now wear an 11 (wide) shoe... wish I was tall to go with it!

answers from Madison on

My daughter is 5'4" tall, 13 years old, and wears a women's size 11 wide shoe, a men's size 9 in cleats (because they don't make them big enough in womens).

I am 5'3" tall, 45 years old, and wear 6.5/7 women's shoe size.

My husband is between 6'2"-6'3" tall, 42 years old, and wears a men's size 12EE.

I'm assuming my daughter's taking after my husband and will be tall. ;)

Who knows if she will be tall.
Ask the Pediatrician.
Are you or her Dad, tall?
Its genetics.
Not shoe size.

My daughter is 10. She wears a size 6-6.5 women's shoes and she can fit my size 7 shoes too.
My daughter's current height, is tall. But ALL the other kids in her grade level are "tall" too.

That sounds normal. My daughter will be 7 this summer and fits a 5 to 5.5 in women's shoes. She is very tall and is often mistaken for a much older child.



answers from Houston on

Who knows...I'm 5'5" and shoe size 10. My friend is 5'9" and shoe size 6 1/2. My 5 yo DD is 43" and wears a toddler 10. I wore a size 9 shoe in 3rd grade. Some kids feet grow quickly.



answers from Savannah on

It can go either way... I wore a size 6 in 4th grade but am only 5'1'' now.



answers from St. Louis on

Well, I have two daughter and what I can tell you is that they couldn't be at more different ends of the spectrum as far as their feet are concerned! My oldest is 5'8" and is a beautiful tall girl that has legs that go on for miles and she wears a women's size 10. She just turned 19. My youngest is a teeny-tiny 5'2" and barely weighs 100 pounds. She wears a size 6 and she is 16. I wear a size 7 and I am 5'5". My husband is 5'11" and wear a size 11 shoe. I could tell my oldest daughter was going to be tall the day she was born. She always had big feet and long legs and arms. She was 22 1/2 inches long at birth to her sister at 19 inches long! Big difference! My oldest also wore a toddler size 5 for her first set of shoes! No cutesy little infant shoes for her.....they were all too small! I do believe that the size of our feet is relative to our height. Our pediatrician has also commented on that and always told me my oldest girl would be taller than average and she sure is. She is a bit self-conscious of her shoe size at times although I don't know why. Her feet are totally proportionate to her height. I envy her at times. She is such a long, lean, and beautiful young woman.....just as I pictured she'd be as she was growing up. You too will probably have a lovely and tall young lady here as well!



answers from New York on

Typically children who have larger feet will be taller. I don't remember what size shoe my daughter wore at age 9, but by age 13 she was a woman's 10, and is now 6' and wears a size 13.


answers from New York on

Big feet don't equal tall. My oldest daughter is 5'1" and wears a size 9.



answers from Seattle on

Supposed to mean that, they say. My almost 8.5 year old girl is also in a women's size 6 already!



answers from Chicago on

My oldest daughter, 9.5 yrs old, wears a size 8.5-9. She's also 5'1", but she was born huge-11lbs, 12oz & 23.5 in long. Iwear a 10 & I'm tall-6ft. My mother in law is about 5'6" & she wears a 12. I think shoe size might have a correlation to height if you have height in your family, but if not, large feet are just that-large.



answers from Boston on

well...when I was 11, I was 4'11'' and wore a 6 women's...I am now 50 still 4'11.5" and wear a 6.5 womens....



answers from Peoria on

Not sure how to answer your question but I'm 5'8" & wear sz 10.5 to 11 in women's. My mother wears a 9.5 AA (narrow), my sister wears 8.5 regular and is a couple of inches shorter than me so I guess it'd depend on if you have family (immediate or otherwise) who have large feet & are tall. I think you can be tall & still have average shoe sizes. I knew a girl the same height as me, thin & she didn't have large feet; one of my female cousins is taller than me, thin but has average sized to small feet...her sister is shorter, chunky and her feet are larger than her sisters. It all depends on genetics I'd imagine.



answers from Philadelphia on

My kids have always worn the size shoe of the grade they were in. (First grade size 1, second grade size 2 etc.). Going into 5th grade my oldest wore a a size 5, by the end of the school year she was a size 7-7 1/2 and her foot hasn't grown since. She is 15 going into 10th grade. She is 5'7". My youngest is going into 5th grade and is still a 4 1/2 so we will see.
Fyi... Feet are the first thing that stop growing.
Also my grandmother was 5'2 and wore a size 9 shoe. I am 5'7 and wear a 7 1/2. Of my friends I am one of the tallest and I have one of the smallest foot sizes and ring size too. My friends can't get my rings on their pinkies😀. I do not think their is a strong correlation between shoe size and height.


answers from Seattle on

My son who is 10 is wearing a men's size 8 shoe, which is a woman's size 10!!
My other son who is 7, is wearing a men's size 6 which is a woman's size 8.
So your daughter's feet sound kind of small to me. lol!
