How to measure


  • 1.Foot length

    The distance between two parallel lines between toe and heel.

    How to measure

    1.Stand your foot on a piece of flat paper - with your heel and longest toe centered on the line.
    2.Holding a pencil vertically, trace around your foot.
    3.Measure the distance of the two parallel lines between the longest toe and heel.
    4.Measure your other foot using the same method.

  • 2.Insole length

    The length of the inner cavity of the shoe.


    Insole length is usually longer than foot length especially for pointy toe shoes.

  • 3.Foot Girth

    How to measure

    1. Wrap the measuring tape around the ball of foot (the widest part behind toes).
    2.Measure circumference of your ball girth precisely.
    3.Check ball girth of the other foot in the same way.
    4.The bigger one of the two measurements is the true value.


1. Take your measurements in the afternoon, when feet tend to be their largest.

2. Wear the same socks or stockings that you will wear with your new shoes. Example: barefoot for sandals, thick socks for winter boots.

3. Some people have one foot slightly longer/wider than the other. Measure both feet,and use the longest and widest measurements to fit your shoes.

4. Don't assume your shoe size is the same as it always has been. The shape of your feet changes over time.

5. Insole length may be slightly larger than your foot length, especially with pointy toe shoes.

6. Shaft circumference and height vary with size. Their interval between sizes is about 0.2" (0.5cm).

7. There may be 0.8" (2cm) deviation because of manual measurement.

8. Some shoes are given recommendations to order smaller or larger (e.g. runs narrow; order 1/2 size up).

9. If half sizes are not available, order a full size up.

10. If you have narrow feet and a narrow-fit isn’t offered, consider going down a half-size if possible.

11. If you have wide feet and a wide-fit isn’t offered, try going up a half size to create more room.

12. If you don't know your size in athletic/running shoes, consider ordering a half size larger than your normal size.
