Really stupid question about shoe sizes.

Afternoon,

I've got a really stupid question about shoe sizes. I've noticed that trainers are (of course) cheaper for kids. If I'm an adult size 5, the size 5 here is the same isn't it? So they should fit?

They're £30 cheaper than the adult range.

If you check out the reviews you will see that there is someone who bought a four and is delighted.

Go for it!!

I just got some gazelles (colourway not available in kids) size 5 and they are lovely grin

I had Gazelles in my youth. Navy and black ones. I thought another pair might make me feel young, just don't have £75 to spend on trainers at the mo.

I'm a 5/6 and I often buy kids/junior shoes. I've never yet found a shop where a kids 5 isn't the same as an adult 5 (beyond the usual differences in fit between styles/brands)

I'm a size 5 and get it in the kids trainers. Works out cheaper. I think kids sizes finish at 5 so go for it.

my sis is a 5 and she buys kids trainers because they are cheaper... no VAT I think?

I've got timberland boots in their junior size 5 and saved £100 . They fit perfectly.

I'm a size 5 and buy my trainers from junior section, miles cheaper

I'm a 5 and I regularly buy kids trainers. Saves me a fortune!

I buy 5.5 in children's trainers and they're the same as women's. You can get some more fun colours too.

I'm a 3/4 and get kids runners if I can. Much cheaper.
