Shoe size after foot length

Shoe size after foot length
So that the purchase does not end so often with return, you should be able to determine your shoe size correctly. Here you will find simple instructions, how to measure your length of the foot that determines the shoe size.

Stand with your foot on a sheet of paper and slide your heel against the wall. Make sure that your weight is evenly distributed between both legs. You can wear the socks you are planning to wear with the shoes you would like to buy. Do not push the heel against the wall. Ask another person to mark on the paper where the farthest part of your foot reaches. It is usually the thumb that reaches the furthest. The mark should be drawn straight vertically. The distance of the mark from the wall corresponds to your foot length. You can then easily determine your correct shoe size according to the sizing chart below.

Hmm... I'm 55 years old and my foot measures 274mm and I have never in my life fitted a size 42 shoe. I usually buy 43, occasionally 44 and never once 42... or a UK size 9, occasionally 10 as 9.5 is rarely available.
