We know that buying shoes on the Internet could be a little intimidating because you're not allowed to try out the shoes. Don't worry. This article will guide you through the whole process and help you find the perfect fit. Let's begin!
The first thing is to know your size in US sizing. You can find it on the size label stitched under the shoe tongue of your current shoes.
If you only know your size in European or Japanese sizing, use the size chart below to convert it to US size. Let’s say you wear EU size 42, then according to the size chart, you are size 9 in US sizing.
*If you're looking for a half size which isn't available in our stock, we recommend you rounding up to the next size. For example, if you wear US 9.5, you could order a US 10. Feel free to let us know in the order note if you need an extra pair of insoles which takes up the space of a half size.
**Our biggest size for women is US 9. And women's US 10 equals men's US 9, women's US 11 equals men's US 10; so on and so forth.
If you’re not sure about your shoe size, you’ll need to do a measurement.
Stand on a piece of fixed paper on the solid ground with your socks on. Mark the tip of your longest toe and the tip of your heel and use a ruler to measure the length between the two marks. Write the number down and measure your other foot. You might want to measure your feet in the afternoon as your feet would be more swollen at this time.
Use the largest number of the measurement to determine your size. Let’s say the length of your foot is 26.7 cm long which is rounded up to 27 cm. It means you’re US size 9 according to the size chart.
If the length of your foot is 10.50 inches long, first you need to convert it into centimeter which is 26.67 cm (1 inch = 2.54 cm). 26.67cm can be rounded up to 27 cm meaning you're US size 9.
Besides sizing, you should also pay attention to fitting. Fitting of shoes can be slightly different due to the shoe last, style and material out of the same size. For example, if you’re a size 9, you'll have to wear size 8.5 for Icon Washed canvas slip-on because Icon Washed runs smaller than usual size.
Make sure you follow the instruction in the product description to choose the right size. Here is a brief summary on the fitting of our collection:
- If you have wide feet, Icon and Hydra will be your best mates.
- If you have rather narrow feet or prefer slim-looking shoes, Adelaide, Cruiser, Duke, Baron or King are the ones for you.
- If you have high insteps, you'll find Medio and Gotha really comfortable.
