Because the foot is three-dimensional, any two-dimensional measuring tool such as a ruler or Brannock device® can only approximate your true shoe size. Please also keep in mind that manufacturers use different lasts (stencils) to construct their shoes, and sizing may vary accordingly.
Make sure you are standing, wearing the socks or stockings you will wear with your new shoes. Using the following chart, convert your centimetre measurement to your US, UK or Euro shoe size.
Tips to find your foot length:
- Stand on a level surface with your heels against a straight edge or wall
- Place a ruler flat on the floor beside the inside of your foot, from heel to toe
- Position an object with a flat edge across the tip of your longest toe
- Your foot length measurement in centimetres is where the flat edge crosses the ruler
- Round up if you are in between sizes to allow for the natural swelling of the feet and thicker socks.
- Remember to measure both feet as most everyone will have one foot longer than the other, as you will need to accommodate for the longer foot
When you find a product that you like, simply select your preferred size metric (US/EU/UK) and choose your size. If you are unsure of which size is right for you, here are some helpful tips:
- Already own a pair of shoes in the same brand? Generally sizing tends to be standard across brands, although sizes can vary slightly depending on the style, shape and material of the shoe. The size of the pair that you already own is a good guide!
- Use product information. Certain brands or styles can run a size larger or smaller. We’ll include this information on the product page when we have this information available.
