  • Top of Page Sizing and Fitting Tips

    Shoe fitting is a very personal experience, and therefore all the advice and technical expertise we can provide is only as good as the shoes feel on your own feet! The most important judge of how well a shoe fits is you - when you are wearing them. Nonetheless, there are some basics we'd like to impart to you, as a guide to selecting proper-fitting footwear. There are no two feet exactly alike (not even clones!), and that includes your two feet! Feet vary even on the same person, usually slightly in length, width or girth (the measurement of volume, or "circumference" of the foot). Therefore, in order to obtain a good fit, it is always a good idea to measure both feet, not just one. Even so, determining a size for yourself from a measurement is not always a definitive answer to what size you may need in a particular shoe. Shoe manufacturers make shoes on forms called lasts, and each of these varies in proportions and measurements enough so that not every size 10 fits like every other. Let's face it: work boots are a significantly different shape than patent leather dancing shoes, but both may come in "your size." It's almost impossible, because of different browsers and browser versions, to provide a proper measuring device for you to perhaps print out and use. Shoe sizes bear no official relationship to the standard units of measure such as inches or millimeters. Remember, too, that if you have a particularly comfortable pair of shoes, you can usually find the size in them, under the tongue, in the heel lining, or imprinted on the bottom. Or perhaps you still have the box! Every footwear manufacturer uses different lasts and subsequently different size conversions.† In any case, refer to our return policy for details on returning shoes that you purchase from us that do not fit! We know that we haven't discussed width here yet. That's because width is proportional to length. That is, a medium in a men's size 7 is much narrower/smaller than a medium in a men's size 12! Width is truly a "judgment call," as it is a measurement of not only size across the†† base of the foot, but of the girth of the foot as well (see the description of girth above in this article), and there is no truly accurate measure that determines width and girth. A very subjective means of determining width is this: a fleshier foot should usually be fit with a medium to wider width; a bonier foot usually is a medium to narrower fit.
