Knowing your shoe size is the first step to finding comfortable shoes that will keep your feet and ankles happy for longer. Wearing shoes that are too tight can have short term consequences such as blisters, achy feet, gait issues etc while long term they can lead to more serious orthopedic problems such as arthritis, diabetes and circulatory problems.
Shoe sizing varies from country to country and our shoe size converter can help you find the right fit for your feet. It takes the length of your foot in centimetres and converts it to various international shoe sizes using the standard ISO formula based on foot length.
For example, it will convert your shoe size into French and English sizes, as well as German and US shoes. It will also convert shoe sizes from different manufacturers, since they may measure the foot differently or have a different zero point in their sizing system. It will also convert your size to a wider shoe size, since some shoes are made with more room for the foot.
Remember that there is an approximate 1.5 size difference between Men’s and Women’s sizing, so it is important to measure your feet with socks on, and make sure you are measuring the largest part of your foot. It is also helpful to go shoe shopping at the end of the day, as your feet tend to swell throughout the day. When measuring your feet, always measure both feet and select the size that is closest to the one you wear most often.
