Many people ask us about the nature of markings utilized while producing shoes for males, females, and children. For example, sometimes while shopping for footwear online or in a brick-and-mortar shop, one may come across the “C” signature on the label.

Size C for which children?

It means that such items have been designed with children in mind. Such footwear is made for youngsters from 0 months up to 8 years and are marked from 0C up to 13C. It is always worth checking producer’s guidelines on shoe sizes in order to select the proper item basing on its size, width, and fitting which should be provided in at least three standards, namely - UK, US, and Europe.

We are fully aware that there are many “C” sizes available, so it is highly recommended to consult a professional with a perennial experience in the field before proceeding to making a final purchase - it will surely make it possible for the customer to avoid the necessity of requesting the purchased shoes to be replaced due to its improper and unsatisfactory fit.
