Working out how to measure your shoe size at home can be tricky. You find some shoes online, and add them to your shopping cart, but wait what shoe size do you actually need? We’ll show you a simple, quick way to calculate the correct shoe size for your foot. Just grab a piece of paper and a pencil.
On the one hand, shoe size depends on the shoe’s manufacturer; but on the other hand, it depends on the length of your individual foot. Since many people have one foot that’s slightly bigger than the other, it’s important to measure both feet. The foot length (you might want to choose the longer foot if applicable) should then be compared with the size chart of your shoe’s manufacturer.
Get an A4 sized piece of paper, a pencil and a ruler.
Place one foot on the piece of paper (barefoot is best.) Your heel should line up exactly with the edge of the paper.
Trace your foot with the pencil. While doing do, make sure to keep your full weight on your foot to keep the correct outline. You can also ask someone to help you out.
Repeat with the other foot.
Measure the distance in centimeters between the paper’s edge and the longest toe.
Finally, compare your measurement with our size chart – voila! You’ve got your shoe size. Our tip: if you land between sizes and are considering a half size, it’s best to choose the smaller size if you’re buying any of our handmade shoes.
