HOW TO FIND THE RIGHT SIZE
Short guide to finding the perfect size
Short guide to finding the perfect size
The first option is that you choose your regular shoe size. Some customers find the right size that way. However, we strongly suggest that you measure your feet anyway because the companies’ sizing can vary. That’s why we prepared instructions on how to do this correctly. The main measure that is needed is the foot’s length. It is also advisable to measure the circumference around hallux bones and instep because this is the widest part of the feet.
If you are not certain about your shoe size, you can just send us your measurements (in centimeters!) and we will choose the right size for you.
You can easily measure your feet at home following these written and video instructions. Those measurements will help us determine the right foot size. We are manufacturing our own shoes so small custom-made corrections of barefoot shoes are also possible.
All the measurements should be done precisely to a millimeter. The drawing pencil should always be perpendicular to the floor. The measurements should be done for both feet as most people have two different feet sizes.
Take a sheet of paper or cardboard and lay it next to the wall (they need to touch). Mark a point where you will step with your heel. With your first leg step in front of the wall, the way the middle of your heel is touching the wall. The paper or cardboard should remain firmly next to the wall. Step firmly on the feet you are measuring and with a pencil mark, the longer distance (between the heel and the longest toe). If you are not measuring the width of the feet this step is enough and you can just measure the longest distance between the heel and the longest toe in millimeters. For some people, the longest toe is a big toe, with others it’s the second toe. Repeat the same step again for the other foot.
Step on the piece of paper or the cardboard the way the whole foot stands firmly on it. Take a thin pencil or pen and lead it perpendicularly around the foot. Measure the circumference of the widest parts of the foot (usually it’s around the hallux bone and around the instep). Apply these measurements for both feet. It is easier if someone can help you with it. The measurements should be done in the socks, you will mostly wear in the shoes you are buying,
Measuring the foot circumference is the easiest with the help of a tape meter. We are measuring the circumference of the instep and hallux bone.
In the table of shoe sizes find the right shoe size for your desired shoes.
We also offer custom made shoes that will come in handy if:
1. You have feet of different sizes. Most people have different sizes of the shoe, however, those differences are not very significant. The problem arises when the difference in feet length is more than half a size. We can make custom-made adjustments that are not visible but significantly improve your feet well being.
2. Your foot shape is significantly different from than regular foot shape, which means the standard sizes are not shaped the way to be comfortable to you. Usual cases of this are:
3. You have stronger hallux valgus bone or any other feet deformations.
The process of making custom-made shoes begins with measuring your feet, which you can do at home (except in the cases of major deformations). You can simply follow the above steps. The second part of making your shoes is done by our shoe shape specialists.
In the table below, you can find the right shoe sizes for every measurement of the foot’s length and width. Barefoot shoes have different measurements than our regular shoes. The measurements around hallux bone are also added for barefoot shoes. If your size around hallux bone is different than the one listed in the table, please contact us. With the barefoot shoe width please note, the materials that we are using are flexible and over time they adjust to the foot shape of the wearer.
PLEASE NOTE: All the table values already include the advisable space in front of the shoes that is 12 mm, which means you can find the right foot size directly without calculating the values yourself.
