My experience is that their feet don't grow quite that fast at that age. My almost 9yo DS is still in a size 1. I don't think his feet have grown much over the last few years. My 10yo DD wore a size 3 last year, and she is in a 6 this year, but it has just been this last year that her feet (and her legs! Man she is tall all of the sudden!) have grown that fast. HTH!

I only have girls, but I'd be surprised if his feet grow that much in a year. We bought slippers in a size 1 when my daughter was 4 years old, knowing that they'd be too big for her since she was in a size 11 or something like that. She's 8, and those slippers are STILL too big... I think she's wearing like a 13.5 now. Almost to that size 1! It's only taken 4 years...

I agree. My oldest is still in size 10 and has been for 2 years. His twin brothers have feet bigger than his and they outgrow their shoes about every 2-3 months. Shoes is one thing I no longer buy in advance.

I also agree! My 12 year old dd is in a size 6 1/2. Her feet have only grown about a size a year except for one year when she hit a huge growth spurt and jumped 3 sizes. My 10 year old ds is in men size 11. He outgrows shoes between the time we buy them at the store and arrive home with them. My 8 year old dd is only 1/2 size behind her 12 year old sister, and wears a 6. My 7 year old ds is in a 5. and my three year old is in a ten. They have all gone through times where they grew faster than others. I don't buy shoes in advance now either.
