Lelli Kelly Shoes - Size, Sizing, Fitting and Conversion Chart.
About Lelli Kelli Sizes
The most important thing to note about Lelli Kelly shoes is that they are sized in continental sizes, Paris point or or Euro sizes as they are commonly referred to. This is not the same as UK sized as used by the likes of Clarks or Startrite. This means that if you see the shoes or boots offered for sale in UK sizes, the shop is making the closest comparison it can between the Euro sizes and UK but you must understand that the conversion is never 100% accurate.
For a true conversion of euro to UK sizes take a look at the chart below from Wikipedia.
So you can see from the standard chart above the size 20 roughly equates to a size 4 but it would be a smallish 4. You should take this in to account when you are buying Lelli Kelly footwear, well in fact any shoes that are sized in continental sizes. At Shoes.co.uk we do follow the advise given by Lelli Kelly Shoes and we have always found them to be accurate with few complaints. Lelli Kelly print this conversion on the boxes but it may not always be in the shoes, so just watch out that the shoes fit well.
Lelli Kelly offer their school shoes in two fittings as well. In our experience the standard fit of a Lelli Kelly School shoe would be around an F fitting in the Clarks fitting scale with their 'Broader' fit shoes fitting around a G. This is not accurate and Shoes.co.uk has not tested the fitting of the shoes but it is an indication from our experience of selling them for the past four years.
The canvas shoes start at a size 20 - In 2011 the Strawberry Baby Dolly had a size run of 20-26 (roughly 4 to 8) with the Strawberry Special Dolly crossing over on the 24 to 26 running from 24 all the way up to a 35 which roughly equates to a 6 to 2½ Some Lelli Kelly Shoes even run as high as a 37 which is a UK 4.
