What Shoe Size Do I Choose?

A shoe size is a number that indicates the correct fitting of a shoe for a person . Often it just consists of a number indicating the length of a shoe, as most manufacturers keep the width the same for economic reasons.

There are several different size systems that are used worldwide. These systems differ in what they measure, what unit of measurement they use, and where the size 0 (or 1) is positioned.

Only a few systems also take the width of the feet into account. Some regions use different shoe-size systems for different types of shoes (e.g., men's, women's, children's, sport, or safety shoes).

 

The length of a foot is commonly defined as the distance between the heel and the most prominent toe of the foot. Foot length is measured with the subject standing barefoot and the weight of the body equally distributed on both feet.

The sizes of the left and right feet are sometimes slightly different. In this case, both feet are measured, and purchasers of shoes are advised to purchase a shoe size based upon the larger foot, because most manufacturers do not sell pairs of shoes in non matching sizes.
