Measuring for your Shoe Size

Follow these simple steps to find out what size your shoe is


  1. Tape a blank piece of paper to the floor so that to doesn't move around
  2. Sit or stand with your foot on the paper and lean slightly forward so that your shin bone overlooks your ankle
  3. Trace (or ask some one to do it for you) your foot on the paper. Make sure you draw very closely to your foot
  4. Measure the length and width of the trace as per the image to the left
  5. If you do this with both feet and one is slightly bigger, choose the larger measurement
  6. Subtract about 5mm from your measurements (a pencil trace leaves a bit of space)
  7. Now use the size chart below to select your size
