Most Frequently Asked Questions
It typically takes 0-4 hours to receive your child’s sizing results. We are currently a small team, so thank you for understanding!
The Jenzy app does not currently support uploading photos taken outside of the app.
Jenzy will recommend shoes for your child based on their stage of development. After checkout, our team reviews your child’s sizing photo, looks at the measurements of the specific shoe you purchased, and will send the correct size.
Every shoe brand fits differently and a child will often wear different sizes in different shoes. At Jenzy, we aim to take the guesswork out of shopping for your kid's shoes so you don't need to select the size while adding items to your cart. After checkout, our sizing team reviews your child’s sizing photo, looks at the measurements of the specific shoe you purchased, and sends the correct size.
It is common for a child to be wearing a different size shoe than the size their foot measured at. This is due to the fact that every brand manufactures their shoes differently which can make shoes run big or small. Our team chooses the size of the shoe based on what we know about your child’s foot measurements, as well as the brand that makes those shoes.
You can always view your child’s most recent measurements (mm and general US shoe size) in their Jenzy profile. Open the Jenzy app, go to the "my kids" tab, and then go into their individual profile. Jenzy will keep track of the last time you sized and remind you when it is time to resize.
If the status in your child's profile that says 'Waiting for Results,’ then your photo is in the queue to be sized. It typically takes 0-4 hours to receive your child’s sizing results. We are currently a small team, so thank you for understanding!
Wait for your child to take a nap! When laying on their back, prop their leg up and place the card next to their foot (or slightly under it) to snap a photo.
Recruit a friend to help you size. One person will sit on the floor and support your child as they stand. The second person will take the photo.
If your child is extra squirmy (most are!), try putting a few cards on the floor. That way they can try to step on one, but you still have another card in the photo to act as the item of reference.
Yes, as long as the socks are tight on the foot, so we can clearly see the heel and toe endings. Fuzzy socks, slipper socks, onesies, or anything that will have a baggy fit are not recommended.
Through one photo on the Jenzy app, we will calculate their foot measurements (general US size and mm) using a standard size card as the item of reference. Jenzy’s proprietary technology is very accurate - calculating foot length within +/- 4mm of accuracy - which is half a child’s shoe size!
Once the shoes arrive, we’ll ask you to check a few things to make sure it’s a perfect fit including:
1. The child can move their toes freely. There should be a space the width of your thumbnail between their toes and the front of the shoe.
2. The heel of the shoes is secure. There should be no slippage when the child is walking or jumping.
3. The ball of the child’s foot (which is the widest part of the foot) fits comfortably within the shoe, and doesn’t feel too tight or pinched.
The Jenzy app does take foot width into account when determining the best size in a specific shoe. Once you've sized and placed an order, our shoe-sizing expert will compare your child's measurements to the shoe's measurement and match them with the best size in that shoe. If for any reason the shoe you selected isn't a good fit width-wise, we'll recommend alternative styles that have a similar look and feel.
When we add a new shoe to our inventory, we consider every factor of how that shoe was constructed. We look at the fit and feel of every shoe to understand if it runs big, small, wide, etc. Then we know what size a child should be wearing in each shoe that’s selected. By bringing a comprehensive approach to sizing, we can produce an extremely personalized size recommendation for each child.
Based on growth projections, children ages 0-6 should be resized every 2-3 months. You will receive notifications from Jenzy when it is time to resize your child’s foot to ensure that they are always wearing properly fitted shoes.
To get the best size recommendation for a child, users should take a photo of the bigger foot.
Yes, sizing through Jenzy is completely free. We will provide your child’s foot length in millimeters, as well as their general US shoe size in your child’s profile. (A note: It typically takes 0-4 hours to receive your child’s sizing results.)
However, the US size that your child is and the size you should buy for them may vary. Continuing to the Jenzy e-commerce store and viewing the personalized recommendations by brand and style is the best way to ensure you are buying the correct size shoes for your child.
Of course! However, we strongly recommend sizing your child’s foot with the Jenzy app before making a purchase. The most common method for buying new shoes is buying the next size up, which often results in a poor and uncomfortable fit. Jenzy makes online shoe buying easy and convenient, and ensures that young children, ages 0-6, get the right fit in the right shoe every time.
Jenzy carries shoes for infants to 8 years old (sizes 6-12 months up to Youth 3 US). However, we specialize in footwear for first walkers and toddlers and have the largest selection of shoes for those development stages.
Taking the Photo
If your child is under 2 years old, we recommend having them lay on their back, prop their leg up and place the card next to their foot (or slightly under it) to snap a photo.
If your child is over 2 years old, position your child’s heel and the top edge of your phone against a wall. We recommend rolling up their pant leg and having them bend their knee.
No, the card can be placed anywhere around the foot. As long as you can clearly see three of the four corners of the card, the photo will be accurate.
If you have received this error message, it means our team was unable to size your child’s sizing photo. Common reasons for this may be that we were unable to see their heel or toe in the photo, three corners of the card were not visible, etc. Look at the specific message in your child’s profile and proceed with taking a new photo by pressing “Size now.”
Any standard credit card, library card, or member card will do! We do not recommend using a card that includes sensitive information such as credit card numbers, however, you can put a piece of tape over the card numbers while making sure the length of the card is still visible.
