It’s a question we regularly get asked and today we are going to try and help you accurately measure your shoe size at home.
What You Will Need
- Long ruler or Tape Measure
- Piece of Card/Paper
Tape your Piece of paper to the floor to stop it from moving. Make sure it is big enough to fit your foot on!
You will need to place your foot onto the piece of paper, slightly bend your leg and make sure your shit is in front of your ankle. You cna do this standing, sitting or crouching down – It is important you are in a comfortable position to prevent movement.
Draw around the outline of your foot, if you struggle then get someone else to do it for you. Wearing socks may give a more accurate representation of the size your fit will be inside the shoe.
Using a ruler you will need to draw a box around your the outline of your foot, ensuring it touches each edge.
You can then measure the length of your foot. Using your ruler or a tape measure, you need to measure from the top to the bottom. Make a note of this number.
You also will need to measure the width of your foot. Measure from side to side between the lines and again make a note of the number.
Subtract 3/16ths (0.5cm) from the numbers to accommodate for the small space between the outline of your foot and your actual foot.
For an accurate shoe size use each brands individual size charts. If this is not possible then find a general sizing chart and use this to find your size. Remember that each country, gender and brand have different sizings so find the most accurate one you can!
