All Mikoleon shoes are design to match standard US dress shoe sizes. We don’t make half sizes and, to ensure the perfect fit, please note the following: All our shoes are standard M width (medium width). Do not order your sneaker size! When we started making shoes five years ago, we found that there's no shoe length standard, that each continent and brand develops their shoes based on their designs and geographical location, so there's really not a standard size in the world to go by; so yes, we are aware that our shoes are different from any other company, hence we recommend that you measure before you buy because we know that a size 5 for a child in a brand such as Nike will not be the same for our shoes as we have designed and develop our own patterns and shoe forms.
If you are not sure what size to get, measure your child's or your feet before buying. Do not use your sneaker size as a size guide! Our customers report our sizes run TTS (true to size).

Handcrafted in Antigua Guatemala by skilled master cobblers who love their craft. Our cobblers still use their hands to cut, pull, hammer, and glue the different steps; this process leaves a human signature on each pair, making them a true heirloom.
Our Explorer Sandals in Brown are made from full-grain Pull-up leather. The leather finish is done with oils and waxes that give unique character, durability, and patina with use. Full-grain refers to hides that have not been sanded, buffed, or snuffed (as opposed to corrected grain) to remove imperfections (or natural marks) on the surface of the hide. The "grain" also remains allowing fiber strength and durability. Full-grain leather. Rubber soles. High-performance insoles. Sizes 4, 5, & 6 have a Velcro closure, which changes for a metal buckle for larger sizes.
A note about sizing...
Please measure before you buy! We no longer offer free exchanges for kids' shoes. Our sizes run differently than what your child may currently be using, so the best thing is to measure. Do not size up, our boots already include extra space for socks and growth, always measure first with socks and then look up our size chart for the best fit using our Printable Size Chart.
A note about our leather...
A craftsman cuts the leather by hand, choosing the leather carefully and making sure that he follows the grain of the leather, his expert eye tells him the best way to cut each piece. He then sews each piece with accuracy and exactness only seasoned cobblers have mastered. Each upper body is placed then in the shoe form and with skilled and strength, the master cobbler dresses the form and prepares it to attach the leather sole. The soles are then layered, one on top of another, he then cuts and sands the leather to perfection. Once the glue is dry the leather Artisan then carefully builds-up the finish with an expert’s eye, and touch, to achieve an aged patina in just the right places to reflect the aged qualities only time, wear, and frequent care could have accomplished naturally.
