Sears Shoes and Sandals (United States, 1950)

Figure 1.-- Here we see the Sears assessment of sizes todler 8-child 3 were for children 3 to 10 years of age. We have seen other estimtes. Of course the age/size equivalents are complicated by the fact that there were differnt size systems in Britain and Europe..

It is a little difficult to assess the age equivalents of these shoe sizes. These shoes were offered in sizes 8, 9, 9, 10. 10, 11, 11, 12, 12, 13, 13, 1, 1, 2, 2, 3. According to one estimate, that would mean essentially primary-age boys from about 6-13 years of age. Sears on this page provides a little lower estimate, 3-10 years. As the Sears estimate pertains specifically to these shoes,this should be considered am accurate age assessment.
