Last year when I was looking for a pair of all white adidas Stan Smith tennis shoes, Nordstrom was completely sold out. I tried Zappos and while they didn’t have the women’s shoe in all white, they DID have one in youth sizes. (For those looking, the adidas Superstar is a comparable pair). Today’s post will help you convert women to youth shoe sizes easily!

My normal size is a Women’s 5.5 and I ended up getting the shoes in a Youth 3.5. They fit like a dream and were also $20 cheaper than the adult version! Who doesn’t like to save a little cash? Most sources suggest ordering 1.5 sizes down from your women’s size when converting to a youth size but I found that 2 full sizes down worked best for me. NOTE: There can be some variation between brands so you may need to test a couple of pairs in order to find your perfect fit.
It may be time to try my youth-size shoe hack again. I recently came across these fantastic silver Hunter wellies in the kid’s section of a recent Garnet Hill catalog.
These awesome print oxfords were in the same catalog and I’m finding them kinda adorable as well!
