Tsukihoshi® shoes are machine washable, ultra-lightweight, and feature removable-green tea extract deodorizing insoles. The brand is known for its functionality, market-leading color combinations, and parent-friendly closures. Many styles in this brand are also AFO friendly and are actively used by Orthopedic specialists.
Every foot is unique and every brand utilizes different shoe specifications when making their shoes. Thus, there is no single or "perfect" measuring device for all footwear brands. Trying the shoes on is still the only way to truly know if you have selected the correct size with the proper "growing room" for the shoe you are purchasing.
With this in mind, and utilizing our decades long experience with fitting children in the Footmates® and Tsukihoshi® footwear brands, we have developed unique "Sizing Tools" for Footmates® and Tsukihoshi®.
Each "Sizing Tool" is specific to either the Footmates® or Tsukihoshi® brand and attempts to take into consideration all the unique size and fitting attributes of the brand. These "Sizing Tools" are not perfect, but they are the best that anyone can do in getting you close to the correct shoe size.
