Re: how do I know if a pair of shoes is too big for dd?
I was always told to buy 1/2 size up (that way they have growing room) right now ds is a 7 but he wears a 7 1/2 with no problems (or in JoShoes they are the 2/3) have your dd stand and push down on the front part of her shoe, see where her longest toe is and there should be about a thumb length and your good. IMO
ETA: the tip of your thumb, (to maybe the 1st knuckle--if that much)
