A women's shoe size can be converted to a children's shoe size by using a chart to compare the inch lengths of each shoe size to find a match. Zappos provides a handy online chart that lists shoe sizes in U.S. sizes, U.K. sizes, European sizes, inches and centimeters. Shoe sizes vary by a quarter-inch for women's and children's sizes, and are thus comparable.
