Abstract

As part of the protocol on the Development of the Child's Arch, 1 foot growth studies were monitored prospectively in 107 children from 1 year of age till 5 years of age. Under 15 months of age, growth necessitated a 1/2 size footwear change in less than 2 months; from 15 months to 2 years of age, 1/2 size increase occurred every 2 to 3 months; from 2 to 3 years of age, 1/2 size change every 3 to 4 months; and from 3 to 5 years of age, 1/2 size change every 4 months. Although foot growth in boys and girls is parallel, boys' feet tend to average one size longer and one size wider. Width growth remained proportional to length growth throughout the study.
