Foot measuring instructions

0 USD

All shoes and slippers are made to our own sizing system . We offer all available sizes in a standard (D) width fitting.  Full details of how to measure up to help you choose your correct  shoe size can be found below! 
It is very important that you MEASURE UP BEFORE ORDERING as sizes vary from maker to maker, its partly why I list actual measurements! Our sizing system does not follow standard UK or US sizing, its more similar to the Japanese system where the length of the foot is used to assess size.

How to measure up


Ingredients: 1 sheet of A4 paper Pencil Ruler Cloth measuring tape

Method: 
1. Place the piece of paper against a wall on a hard flat surface, i.e. a wooden floor. 
2. Stand on the paper with your heel against the wall. Draw a line across the piece of paper at the longest part of your foot, usually your 1st or 2nd toe. 
3. Take your foot off the paper, and using your ruler mark a straight line from the edge of the paper where your heel was to the line that you have just drawn at the toe, measure this length and make a note on the paper. Take this measurement for both feet. If they are different use the larger length. 
4. Next you need to check your width! Using the tape, measure around the largest part of your foot, usually from the big toe joint (the ball) to the little toe joint and note down the circumference. Take this measurement for both feet and again if they are different use the larger width. Cross reference this with the table below. Give or take a few mm! Some of the styles are quite open and / or adjustable across the width. See individual descriptions. 
5. Compare both the length and width of your foot to the measurements shown above to find your shoe size!
