What Size Baby Shoes Does My Baby Need?

Hello, dear parents and guardians! Welcome to Grookz Shoes, where we prioritize the comfort and style of your little one's feet. One of the most common questions we encounter is, "What size shoes does my baby need?" Today, we're diving deep into this topic, along with addressing when babies should start wearing shoes and the typical shoe size for a 6-month-old. Let's get started!

1. What Size Baby Shoes Does My Baby Need?

The size of your baby's shoes is crucial for their comfort and foot development. It's essential to ensure that the shoes are neither too tight nor too loose. Here's a simple guideline:

  • 0-3 months: Usually, babies at this age don't need shoes. Soft socks or booties are sufficient to keep their feet warm. However, if you're looking for style, our new releases have some adorable options for the tiniest feet.

  • 3-6 months: At this stage, babies might start to become more active. While they're not walking yet, a soft shoe or a baby sock shoe can be a good choice. Check out our collection of baby sock shoes for some snug options.

  • 6-9 months: This is the age when many babies start to crawl and pull themselves up. A shoe size of 2-3 typically fits babies in this age group. Wondering what size shoe a 6-month-old wears? Generally, size 2 is a good starting point, but always measure your baby's foot to be sure.

2. What Age Should Babies Start Wearing Shoes?

Babies have soft and pliable feet, which means they don't need shoes until they start walking. Shoes are primarily for protection against rough surfaces and sharp objects. Before your baby takes their first steps, soft socks or booties are sufficient.

However, once your baby starts to walk, which is typically around 9-18 months, it's time to invest in their first pair of shoes. At Grookz Shoes, we recommend soft-soled shoes initially to allow your baby's feet to develop naturally. Our best sellers collection has a range of soft-soled options that are perfect for beginner walkers.

3. What Size Shoe Does a 6-Month-Old Wear?

As mentioned earlier, a 6-month-old typically wears a size 2 shoe. However, it's essential to remember that every baby is unique, and their growth can vary. Always measure your baby's foot before making a purchase. If you're looking for a bargain, our clearance sale section has some fantastic deals on baby shoes.


Choosing the right shoe size for your baby can be a bit challenging, but with the right guidance, it becomes a breeze. Always prioritize comfort over style, and remember that soft-soled shoes are best for those first steps. If you're ever in doubt, our team at Grookz Shoes is always here to help.
