Size Guide


Size Guide

Cienta children's shoes are available in toddler and junior European (EU) sizes for boys and girls, approximately aged between 2 and 10 years, and adult sizes (teens).

The table below shows the approximate inner sole length for each Cienta shoes size (EU size). The middle column refers to our canvas shoes and the right column to our espadrilles. For greater accuracy, however, we recommend the customer follow these steps:

  1. Measure the child's foot from the back of the heel to the longest toe on the longest foot, in centimetres (cm);

  2. Select type and shoe size by comparing the foot length with the inner sole length below;

  3. Please allow for up to 1 cm of additional length when choosing the corresponding EU size. For example, if the child's foot measures 13.2 cm in length choose EU size 22 (13.6 cm) which is slightly longer than the child's foot.

For all shoes allow for up to 1 cm space between the longest toe of the child's foot and the length of Cienta's inner sole. Choose the larger size if the child's foot measures between two sizes.

The correct shoes size will depend on factors such as arch length, socks, or ambient temperature. Heat and humidity affect the foot volume by up to 5%. This can result in a full size difference between early morning and evening.
