Squatchi

Children's Shoe Sizer

A Perfect Fit

If you’ve ever taken small children to shop for shoes, it’s easy to see the motivation behind Squatchi, a shoe-sizing tool you can use at home. It lets you measure kids’ feet in the comfort of your own home. Once you know their sizes, you can shop online or head to the stores without dragging along the kids.

The inventor of Squatchi, Amy Carabajal, likes the convenience of shopping for her kids’ shoes online, but she was
frustrated by the lack of accurate sizing tools. She invested in a professional foot-measuring device (the kind that shoe retailers use), and when her neighbors started bringing their kids over to borrow it, Amy knew she was onto something. She and Squatchi co-founder Debra Rosenbloum set out to create an affordable shoe sizer. Their colorful creation is easy to use, and it doubles as a foot growth chart if you track kids’ measurements with a permanent marker.

Made in the U.S. from recycled plastic, Squatchi takes the guesswork out of shoe sizing so you can shop online with confidence and shop in stores without making your kids come with you. Kids’ feet grow fast, and Squatchi makes it easy to keep up with the changes. It’s a perfect fit for busy families.

    Hi everyone! We are so excited to introduce Squatchi to you - a solution for all

    parents. Like most moms, I try to avoid the pitfalls of shopping with my kids,

    especially shoe shopping. Waiting for help, negotiating on shoes, preventing

    onset of temper tantrums, etc. I needed an accurate way to measure my kids’

    feet at home – so I could shop without torturing my kids and myself in the

    process.

    My business partner and I created a simple, accurate and easy-to-use solution

    to the universally dreaded shoe-shopping-with-kids experience. Using Squatchi,

    parents can measure kids’ feet in the comfort of their home and either shop while

    they are at school or order online without having to guess which size to order.

    But how do you measure for width. My two grandson have box-shaped feet!

    Hi Linda,

    Thank you for your email! The Squatchi does not measure width for several reasons. Width doesn't change in the same way that length does, which is constantly! You either have a "wide," "normal," or "narrow" foot. Parents typically know early on whether their child is wide or narrow and they order accordingly - it's not something that necessarily changes. We wanted to be able to measure BOTH feet (since kids feet are always growing and not necessarily at the same rate)! It seems like you know your grandsons have wide feet so I would order "wide" or one size up for those brands that don't offer wide. Hope that helps!

    Hi Mari,

    The Squatchi measures up to a size 5 in children.

    What a great idea!! However, it would help if the measurements included width as well. Some of my younger kids have wide feet, so knowing what their width size is, is necessary to get the proper shoe size.

    Thanks,

    @ Judy Lee Thanks for the comment Judy. Interestingly enough, children's shoe width is measured only in the following terms for almost every chidren's shoe,

    narrow, medium and wide. Therefore, in general, most of the time by looking at your child's foot you can gauge which of the three options best decribe's your child's foot.

    Also, another aspect of the Squatchi is that as you mark each measurement add his/her age and a fun foot growth chart is created for you to have as a keepsake. Watch them grow!!!!
