Here is our quick guide to measuring the width and length of your feet, including our brief 'How to' video. Whilst you will see a shoe measurement chart in the video, you will find an updated and more comprehensive guide at the bottom of this page, which we advise you to use. You will also find a printable guide at the bottom of this page.

 

Measuring Foot Length

1) Take a piece of A4 paper and a pencil. Sit on a chair and place your foot on the paper so that it rests naturally (but without your body weight) on the paper.

2) Holding the pencil perfectly vertically and perpendicular to the paper, trace around the perimeter of the foot as closely as possible without angling the pencil in or out. It is not necessary to draw the outline of each toe; the longest toe is of primary concern. If you know that one foot is bigger than the other, be sure to draw around the bigger foot.

3) Using the ruler, measure the distance from the very bottom of the heel to the top of the longest toe. To be accurate subtract 0.20 to 0.25 inches from the measurement, to account for the diameter of the pencil.

4) Record the measurement on the paper

Determining Shoe Size

To find the shoe size based on the measurement, use the table below to find the measurement that corresponds to the length of the foot tracing. If between sizes, go to the next highest size and then use an insole in the shoe. Please note that this chart is meant as a guide.

Determining Shoe Width

Again, sitting down, place your foot on the floor and wrap the tape measure under the foot and around the widest part of your feet. Record the measurement in cm (we use cm for our measurement charts) where one end of the tape meets the other. Do not try to tighten the tape measure. It is advisable to repeat this exercise on both feet and choose the widest measurement.

Check the same chart above by finding your foot length (shoe size) and then read across to find the width in inches that match your foot width measurement. This will then tell you what foot width you are. 

Ideally, feet should be measured about once a year to see if there have been any changes.

Please note that the charts are meant as a guide and some styles will measure up slightly different to the measurements given so do check our individual product pages for additional sizing guidance. You will also find if you search the internet, that most charts show slightly different measurements. Our advice is to use our measurement chart for our shoes. 

Being a wide fitting shoe company, all of our shoes are made in an extra wide EEE fitting, although some styles are a slightly slimmer (but still wide) EE fitting. If you find your feet measure up a little slimmer on the charts, you could still wear our styles without issue by adding an insole for extra comfort. If your feet measure up a little wider than our widest EEE fitting, our shoes could still be a good option as they are all made from soft suede or leather, and will stretch a little with wear.
