How To Measure Your Foot For A Good Fit For These Shoes
Step 1: Sit on a chair and place your bare foot flat on a piece of plain white paper.
Step 2: Carefully trace the outline of your foot onto the paper.
Step 3: Do the same with your other foot.
Step 4: Compare the two tracings (a good method is to place one paper over the other and hold them up to a source of light). Complete Steps 5 and 6 using the larger/longer foot.
Step 5: Measure the tracing from toe edge to heel edge to get the inside shoe length.
Step 6: Measure the tracing from edge to edge at the widest part to get the inside shoe width
The Shoe length should be about half an inch or 1.25cm longer than foot length. e.g. a 10 inch foot needs a shoe at least 10.5 inches long.
