When looking for your next shoe purchase, there are some quick references you can use to save yourself a whole lot of time! Below you will find references for NZ shoes sizes and their accompanying standards.
Kids shoe sizes: For kids, toddler and baby sizes, NZ is the same US sizes on the inside of the shoe or under the sole.
Womens shoe sizes: Womens shoes also follow the same reference of NZ and US shoe sizes being the same.
Mens shoe sizes: For mens shoes, it’s a little different. They follow the conversion of NZ to UK sizes.
Tips For Buying New Shoes
1. Try on shoes in the afternoon as feet/soles swell during the day from walking, running, exercise and standing. This can result in a tight shoe when buying shoes in the morning.
2. Wear your most used pair of socks when trying on shoes. Having the extra layer can sometimes mean the difference in a size due to the thickness of the sock.
3. Measure both feet when looking for shoes. Many times one of our feet will be larger than the other. If this is the case, use the larger of the measurements as the shoe size.
4. Allow for some extra wiggle room at the edge of your toes. This will reduce the break in time, allows for more growth of your foot and is an overall more comfortable shoe.
If you are over the ditch in Australia, you will then be happy to know that we have also made a guide on Australian shoe size conversions. Didn’t get the information you were after?

New Zealand is the home of Pavlova (which is still debated), flat whites, the best rugby team ever and Hobbits. But one thing we all know about Hobbits is that they don’t really like to wear shoes.
Frodo climbed Mt Doom all on his barefoot, but it would have been much more comfortable with a well fitted pair of shoes. Hopefully you have watched Lord Of The Rings, otherwise you might think I’m crazy.
Jokes aside tho, here at FeetSeek, we have rounded this post on NZ shoe size conversion charts so you don’t have to walk around like a Hobbit. But us Kiwis do like to walk around without shoes time to time 😉.
