Shoe size notes - hints & tips

  • The Japanese system is based on the length of your foot in cm, so an easy way to find your size is to just measure your foot in cm.
  • Observe that American women's shoe sizes are the same as American men's shoe sizes plus 1½ entities.
  • 1 inch equals 2.54 centimeters.
  • Always measure both your feet as they tend to vary in length, choose the shoe size that fits the larger of the two.
  • Shoes that are to small are the most common causes of foot pain. If the choice stands between a shoe size that are a little bit to big and a shoe size that are a little bit to small, go for the bigger one. You can always complement with an insole to make the shoe fit perfect.
  • Be aware that not all brands of footwear fit the same. Other variables such as the width of the shoe will have an impact of the overall fit.
  • Which time of the day is best for measuring your feet? The answer is the afternoon or the evening, because this is when they usually are at their largest volume.
  • When trying out new shoes, use the kind of socks you actually will be wearing when using those particular shoes.
  • Don't buy shoes to tight with the idea that they somehow will stretch out and fit over time. While this sometimes may be the case with leather shoes, most shoes won't be stretched out over time.
  • Over time the shape of your feet changes, so don't assume your shoe size will be the same as it always has been.
  • The mondopoint system is used by military services such as NATO, probably because it is easier to get an accurate fit as this system also takes the foot width into account. A shoe size with the measure 290/120 indicates a foot length of 290 millimetres with a width of 120 millimetres.
  • To get a certain shoe size in Canada and the United States you can use this shoe size converter formula: The length of the last, measured in inches, multiplied by three and minus a constant. The constant in question differ for mens, women's and children's shoe sizes.
  • American Women's shoe sizes are the same as American Men's shoe sizes plus 1½ entities.
  • Paris Points, which is the shoe size system used in Europe, came from France. The length of one Paris Point equals two-thirds of a centimetre.
