Measuring device Plus12

The Plus12 measures the lenght of the child's foot and automatically adds 12 mm (approx. 1/2 inch), the extra space necessary for a correct fit.

Measures the inside lenght of shoes.

Did you know that over half of all childrean tested wear shoes that are much to short for their feet?

Poorly-fitting shoes cause damage to kids feet.

To fit correctly, the inside lenght of a shoe should be at least 12 mm (aprox. 1/2 inch) longer than the foot.


Here's how it works

1. To measure the feet: Place your child's foot either barefoot or in close-fitting socks on the Plus12 and measure the lenght. The Plus12 automatically adds 12 mm (approx. 1/2 inch). For exemple: If the Plus12 shows a lenght of 180mm, then the foot is 168mm long and the shoe should measure at least 180mm in inside lenght. Make a note of the lenght of the larger foot in mm.

2. To measure the shoe: Place the Plus12 inside the shoe and extend until it touches the fron of the shoe. Tikki Shoes note: Please make sure the shoe fits snugly at the heel and at the ball and that the foot does not slip around in the shoe.

3. Does the shoe fit? If the plus12 foot measurement is the same as the shoe measurement, then the shoe fits (exemple: lenght of foot as measured by the Plus12=180mm, inside lenght of shoe=180 mm).


Tikki Shoes note: the 12 mm extra space it's a recommendation of austrian specialists, but from our exerience this is a little to much space, especially fot the first steps. Our advice is to have an extra space of maximum 7-8 mm.


Why doesn't the red plastic tip of the Plus12 fit in some shoes?

The big toe of most kids just learning to walk is about 12 mm high - just like the red plastic tip of the Plus12. So if the tip of the Plus12 doesn't fit into the tip of the shoe, that shoe is not suitable for kids feet.


A useful video tutorial for the Plus12

Most Tikki Shoes products are manufactured from natural leather and so must be cared for in the manner usually applicable to leather footwear, with a few exceptions:
1. You must not wash the footwear in a washing machine! Due to rather long washing cycles, their duration usually exceeding an hour, the leather is submerged in water for too long which can result in its scaling and shrinking when drying. Additionally, the risk of colour transfer increases in contact with water. Tikki shoes should only be cleaned with special leather care products.
2. The velour leather requires periodical cleaning when the surface becomes dirty or greasy. You don't need to clean it very frequently.
In this case you must use a dedicated product, such as Bamboo Lotion.
3. The outside leather of baby shoes/outdoor footwear/sandals/wool boots must be cleaned only with special leather care products.
4. The drying must occur slowly and exclusively at room temperature: avoid drying the footwear next to heat sources (radiator, stove, fan, fire, hair dryer or other heat sources, or by exposing the footwear to direct sunlight) which would harden the leather and cause scaling on its surface.
5. Do not use bleach, detergents or solvent-based solutions to clean the footwear.

Deposit the footwear in dry spaces and in boxes to avoid colour transfer; avoid moisture.

Avoid getting caught or stepping on sharp metal objects, stones, glass shards, oils, fuel, and thinners. The warranty does not cover damage resulting from poor roads, footpaths or pavements, or from using the footwear on other rough, abrasive or corrosive surfaces.

We are not liable for damages resulting from not following the above mentioned instructions, or for discomfort resulting from wearing the wrong size or model/fitting of shoes.
