This has been bugging me.

I want to buy a pair of shoes for my brother, and the size is: 10C

What does C mean?

Thanks.

the letter is the width.

/edit

actually, if it's for a child, c prolly means child, cuz there are 2 different scales, one for children and one for adults.

but also, letters can mean the width.

I've tried google to no avail...

I think it's kind of redundant for them to put Children's 10C.

I think it means childs, but if it is width, I believe it only goes in number of Es. E, EE, EEE ... you know what I mean.

*EDIT* Has to, shoes only come in these widths:

N = NARROW WIDTH OR A A

M = MEDIUM WIDTH OR B

W = WIDE WIDTH OR D

WW = WIDE WIDE OR E E

:rolleyes: Go to a local store like Wal-Mart, or some reg. shoe store and borrow their foot measurer ...

There are 9 widths in the US system. From narrowest to widest, they are: AAA, AA, A, B, C, D, E, EE, EEE. The D width is considered to be "medium". The widths are linear and are separated by 3/16 of an inch. Just to keep things interesting, the actual width measurement which yields a D width size varies with the length size.
