With this in mind, the Junior Model device ensures that the shoe will fit, while allowing approximately one size for growth. The method of measurement is the same as the adult model with the exception of finding the width. Instead of utilizing a width t-bar, the Junior device uses a slide to measure the width. Position the slide so the arrows point to the size determined from toe or arch length.
Then, find the width line which aligns to the widest part of the foot. How to Measure Infants When measuring infants, place the ball indicator to the end of the slot. Hold the heel firmly against heel cup, and rest the inner edge of the foot against the indicator.
Press the toes against the device with your thumb and read the toe length. To measure the width, use the diagonal width line which comes in contact with the foot at the widest part.

These terms are not standardized. Footwear manufacturers can use these terms at their discretion so it is difficult to determine how the Brannock width measurement you measure relates to a manufacturers specification. Contact the footwear retailer or manufacture to get specific recommendation on their width sizing. Shop at stores that provide service to their customers and have knowledgeable sales people.
