Mens & Womens - Shoe Sizes to Inches Conversion Charts


Practically the best way to get a shoe size is to take measurements, then with this number associate it with the mens or womens size. To do this, simply draw an outline around your foot contour on a sheet of paper and measure the furthest distances, from the toe to the heel wearing socks fitting for the shoe type. Figure this for both of your feet and take the longer of the two sizes, since no two feet are the same. For the gamut of international/european size conversions for men and women.

Added Converter Notes:

  • The above measurements are in U.S. sizes.

  • Sizes are determined by honing on the midpoints, not the beginning of the size range.

  • Digital tape measurements avoid confusion - but be aware of the play at the start of the tape, some of these bring wiggle, and make certain the unit is accurate by first testing it, comparing it with a ruler if you have not done so before relying on it.

  • Calipers are not recommended.
