Because the foot is three-dimensional, any two-dimensional measuring tool such and a ruler or Brannock device can only approximate your true shoe size. Please also keep in mind that manufacturers use different lasts to construct their shoes, and sizing may vary accordingly.
Follow the steps below to find your foot size in centimetres:
- Place a piece of paper on a hard, flat surface against a wall. Stand on the piece of paper with your heel touching the wall and make sure you are wearing the socks you would usually be wearing.
- Mark the end of your big toe with a pencil. Repeat for both of your feet and take the longer distance to determine your size.
- Using a ruler, measure in centimetres the length from the edge of the paper to the mark you have drawn. This will determine your foot size in centimetres and can be used in the size conversion charts for all of the brands.
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.
Certain brands or styles can run a size larger or smaller. We include this information on the product page when applicable.
