Shopping Advice For Shoe & Beauty Lovers

Foot measurements made easy

In order to successfully shop for shoes online you need to be confident that you know your correct shoe size. Your feet will feel so much better when you’re wearing the right sized sexy shoes.

Here is a very easy 6 step guide to measure your feet. Keep in mind, it’s not uncommon to have slightly different sized feet, so do take the time to measure both and go with the bigger sized foot for your next shoe purchase. It is best to do these measurements in the afternoon when your feet are at their largest.

Here’s what you need:

  1. a pencil or pen,
  2. adhesive tape,
  3. 2 pieces of paper larger than your foot,
  4. a ruler, and
  5. your feet (with socks on if measuring for shoes you’d wear socks with)

Step 1

Tape the paper to a hard surface floor.

Step 2

Place your foot on the paper and using the pencil, trace the outline of your foot. Ensure the pencil is perpendicular to the floor and as close to your foot as possible.

Step 3

Using your ruler and pencil, mark a line along the outermost points of your heel, toe and the sides of your foot.

Step 4

Measure the length of your foot from the toe to the heel using the lines drawn in Step 3, then measure the width of your foot from one side to the other using the widest part.

Measure your other foot repeating Steps 1 – 4.

Don’t round up or down too dramatically.

Step 6

To find your shoe size and width, convert the measurements using this chart:
