Shoe Size Conversion 

Finding Your Perfect Shoe Size By Measuring your Foot Size Accurately

Are you looking for a shoe size conversion? Have a look at our conversion charts for MenWomenChildren and Infant shoe sizes so that you can be sure you are buying the right shoe.


Many people think they know what their shoe size is, but often these people are wearing shoes that do not fit them correctly. Ill fitting shoes can lead to such foot problems as blisters, sore or achy feet and plantar fasciitis. These foot problems can be irreversible if a person continues to wear the wrong shoe size for years and years at a time. This can especially be a detriment for women, as high-heeled shoes can cause the most damage if the footwear is not properly fitted. Knowing your correct shoe size is vital and even if you know what size you wear in American-made shoes, it can still be a problem if you are purchasing footwear that comes in European sizes. You may also be interested in shoes from China, Japan, Mexico, Australia or the UK, so it is imperative that you use shoe size conversion charts to get the correct size of shoe.

In order to use a shoe size conversion chart correctly, you need to know the actual measurement of your foot. After measuring your foot size, you will know the exact inches of your feet and it will be much easier to use shoe conversion tables to figure out what size you should order from various other countries.

Measuring your foot size is not hard to do, as long as you have the necessary tools to get an accurate foot size measurement. You need to first make sure that you are wearing the socks or stockings that you plan to wear with the shoes you want to purchase. People often wear thick, bulky socks with hiking boots, so these socks will need to be worn when measuring. It is also wise to measure your feet at the end of the day, when the feet are often slightly swollen and possibly bigger than they usually are. This is when the foot will be at its largest and you want to make sure that you can wear your shoes at any point of the day. Use a tape measure to measure each foot individually while you are standing. If possible, have a friend do the measuring of your foot for you. If each foot is a slightly different size, take the larger of the two measurements. Once you have a measurement, you can consult shoe size conversion tables for men, women and children so that you can get the right fitting shoes from countries all over the world. Enjoy the comfort and avoid pain when you purchase shoes that fit accurately.
