I’m sure many of you have heard of this tip before, but just incase, I will touch on it for those who haven’t. When shopping for or trying on your new pair of shoes, boots, heels, slippers or sandals, it’s best todo it in the afternoon. Huh?
This is because your feet actually swell 10-20% during the day due to walking, standing and exercise. If you have ever purchased a pair of shoes in the morning and then find they are tight later on. This is most probably why! So to save yourself some money and unnecessary pain, try on your shoes late in the afternoon!
Why Are UK & US Shoe Sizes different?
When it comes to shoe sizing, unfortunately there isn’t one universal standard. This is where different shoe sizing like US, UK, EU, AUS, JPN and IND come into play. These different shoe sizing methods go back to the use of a wooden last which were a universal device.
However back in the 16th century, each nation had there own measurement standards which to this day give us different shoe sizes. Ok, enough of the history lesson, you came here to find out some shoe sizes!
While I was in recently in the UK, I wanted to get myself a new pair of Nike kicks. Luckily I had come up with this mega reference guide on US to UK shoe size conversion to help me find the right sizes. In this guide I have included three reference charts for kids, womens and mens shoe sizes.
I have also included measurements in centimetres and inches so you can measure your feet for the perfect fit!
How To Measure Your Feet At Home
Living in the 21st century, online shopping is just now a way of life. I mean who really wants to go to a overpacked mall for hours? Personally I don’t! But what about when it comes to shoes? Can you trust the online retailers to give you the right information without actually trying on the shoes?
[su_note note_color=”#bcf8f7″]From my own experience, I have had positive shopping experiences when buying my last pair of Converse and leather hiking boots. While I still knew my shoe size, I was still conscious of measuring my feet as they can still grow the older you get.[/su_note]
I also made sure to check the return policies of the online retailers. Most good ones will give you free return shipping if they shoes do not fit properly. Enough of me babbling on, here is how to measure your feet at home.
1. Stand on an A4 piece of paper with your heel butting onto a vertical surface or wall. This is done as if you trace under the heel, you will get a smaller size as there is a slight overhang.
2. Wear your most used pair of socks or the socks you plan on wearing with your new pair of shoes. If gym shoes, wear your thick cotton white socks or your thin black ones for that new pair of suede work shoes.
3. Trace around your feet with a marker or pen. You might of noticed that I said feet, not foot. This is because quite often our feet are slightly different sizes. So if you left foot is larger than your right. You would then use that as the reference to the size.
4. As I touched on above, it’s best todo this exercise in the afternoon when your feet are at their largest.
5. Last but not least it to measure your traced foot. The best method is to measure from the back of the paper where you heel was. Then measure to the edge of your longest toe. This might not be the big toe, so be careful to check. If you done have a ruler lying around, you can use a printable ruler.
