Women’s To Kid’s Sizing: Back To School Edition


A new school year will be here in no time and whether you need casual kicks or something to lace up in the gym, Finish Line has the right back-to-school support for your soles. Knowing kids shoes are not always for small feet will help you with your shopping before hitting the books. Thanks to @atothebed’s women’s to kid’s sizing breakdown, we already know the basics:

  • Women’s to kids’ sizing formula: (your shoe size) – 1.5 = your youth size
  • Women’s sizing runs 1.5 sizes larger than youth sizing, so you will subtract 1.5 from your regular size. For example, if you wear a women’s 7.5, you would wear a size 6 youth.

With more options and more money in your wallet at check out, here’s why Finish Line Women are loving kids’ sneakers for a new school year:
