How to Measure Shoe Size at Home...

By measuring your feet, you can determine your shoe size. Trying shoes in the shoe store will then go faster, and it is also more likely that you will find a well-fitting pair of shoes when shopping Online. But how to measure and determine your shoe size at home? It is easy, and you will get a decent result if you do it carefully. OK, here we go...
Note: We highly recommend to do the measuring process as described below with both left and right foot (one of them can be slightly larger than the other!)
Measuring foot and shoe size: Equipment needed and possition
Place a blank paper sheet (paper size A4 or similar) on the floor (you may tape the paper sheet down on the floor.) Sit on a chair (on the edge) and place your foot on the paper sheet, with your leg slightly bent forward. Make sure you have a pencil/marker available.

Draw the outline of your foot carefully all the way around. Draw as close to the foot as possible, but make sure not to draw "under" the foot. If you do not manage to do the drawing yourself, ask a good friend for help. This is a fun thing to do together anyway. Do it over again with the other foot (one foot can be larger than the other!)

Shop shoes with inches / cm as shoe size
Shoe size can vary slightly between different shoe brands, manufacturer and shoe styles. But many shoe brands also show the shoe size in actual measurement (inches or cm). So why convert your measurements into "shoe size" (i.e. US, UK, EUR) if you can shop directly with your measured foot size (inches/cm)?

Good luck - and happy shoe shopping :)
