Size Guide & Guarantee

 

Based on averages, we believe that a "Size 2" should actually fit your child from when they are two to when they are three.  However, we do appreciate that not all children are built the same and so in the spirit of helping you make an informed choice, have included our manufacturing size guide below.

Having said that, we also appreciate that buying clothes online can be difficult and even if you measure your kids according to the chart, sometimes things just don't fit right.

 

Therefore, we offer all our customers, the right to return items from their first order in order to exchange them for different sizes at no charge. Simply contact us and we will be more than happy to help you out.

Wellies Size Guide:

In order to ensure correct size for your feet, we have measured the internal length of each insole of each Wellington boot as shown in the table below. Please measure one of your insoles that currently fit your foot length, and match it to our measurement, to find your correct size. We have found that this is the most efficient way, as shoe sizes and measurements vary between manufacturers.
