Choosing Your Size
When buying shoes, choosing the right size is essential. Unfortunately, there isn't any unified size chart, which is why different manufacturers use different sizing. You don’t always have the possibility to try on the shoes in a shop. We will give you a few advices on how to choose the right size of shoes.

Choosing the right size
When buying shoes, choosing the right size is essential. If you click on the size, top line will show you the size in other measurement units. Different brands can use different sizing. We recommend choosing your size according to the measurements in centimetres. If you are buying shoes for hiking or running, an unwritten rule says that the shoe should be approx. 0,5 – 1 cm larger. During longer walks, especially with a backpack, your foot arch loosens slightly and your foot stretches.
A - foot length
B - insole length
C - 5 mm (0.20 inch)
Measuring your foot
- Use either a shoe box or any wall with a 90° angle.
- Get a piece of paper or a cardboard, ruler and a pen.
- Be sure to wear your usual socks.
- Step on the piece of paper and position your foot in a 90° angle to a wall or use a shoe box.
- Use a ruler and a pen to draw a line right above your longest toe.
- Measure the distance from the line to the wall.
- Choose size accordingly.
А - foot length in centimetres
Always measure both legs because in most cases the length is different. Choose the size according to the longer foot.
