An Overview On Size 12 Girls' Shoes

Shopping for size 12 girls’ shoes can be a little tricky, since it is the largest size for toddlers ages 2 to 4. After that, you would hop to the next category: little kid shoes for ages 4 to 8, which starts at 12.5. Size 12 is 7 and 1/8 inches, while size 12.5 is 7 and 1/4 inches.

There is not much of a difference at all in length between a 12 and a 12.5, so be sure to measure carefully. If your child’s feet are smaller than average, she might be in the smaller size group, even if she is older. That means she might scoff at anything that makes her look “like a baby” (in her opinion).

When buying shoes for toddlers, look for sneakers and shoes with firm, flexible soles. If you’re uncertain about size, go to a children’s shoe store and have their feet measured there; you can always buy them online later on once you know the size.

Be aware that children’s feet usually grow pretty fast, so you may have to buy new pairs every few months. Once kids get a little older, they will be tougher on their shoes, so look for styles and brands that are more durable. Avoid pointy toes, high heels and clogs for young people, but feel free to go for bright colors, light-up features and of course, unicorns or dinosaurs.

Shop for girls’ shoes with an upper made from leather, cloth, canvas and mesh instead of plastic and rubber. Those last two materials are not porous, so her feet can get sweaty and uncomfortable.

As a guideline, it should be easy to bend the shoe with little effort. The treads should never be smooth, slick or have deep grooves that can catch onto things. Finally, slip-resistant soles are the best choice.

The Size 12 Girls' Shoe Buying Guide

  • For help with sizing, download a printable children’s shoe sizing tool and measure their feet at home. You will then need to add a thumb-width space at the top of their longest toe to give them enough room (or follow the instructions on the shoe sizing chart).
  • Make sure your child is standing up when you measure their feet; never do this while they are sitting down.
  • Have your little one help you choose the shoes. Take your turn first by selecting three or four that are acceptable, and leave the final decision to her.
  • Hand-me-downs are fine for clothing, but not for footwear. That is because shoes conform to the wearer’s feet and will not fit your child’s feet properly.
