Conversions from Kid’s sizing to Men’s and Women’s sizing?

Kid’s shoes, in the grade school range, follow Men’s sizing. For example, kid’s sizes stop at size 7 followed by a Men’s 7.5.

There is an approximate one and a half size difference between Men’s and Women’s sizing. The most similar size to a Men’s size 7 is a Women’s size 8.5. Widths however, are the same between Men’s and Women’s shoes. For example if you are a D width in Men’s, you would be a D width in women’s as well.

Women’s 6.5 7.0 7.5 8.0 8.5 9.0 9.5 10 10.5 11 11.5
Men’s 5.0 (Kids) 5.5 6.0 6.5 7.0 7.5 8.0 8.5 9 9.5 10

  1. If Men’s size start at 7, then why does every shoe store sell Mens’ 7’s and Childrens 7’s in separate sections?
