The sizes of sneakers

Determining the size of sneakers is based on the following measurement:

  • the length of the insole: for shoes from the USA and European countries.

The obtained results are compared with the size charts of particular brands.

Important: for more accurate size determining of sneakers the allowance from 0.2 (mm) up to 1 (cm) should be added to the insole length.

The importance of accurate size choice:

For sport shoes it’s very important to choose the correct size, the measurement error should not be more than 2 (mm).

Standard correction when taking measurements of the foot length is 5-6 (mm), that means when choosing any sneakers, You should add an allowance of 5-6 (mm) to Your foot length for free blood circulation.

Also the season of wearing is considered. For autumn and winter sneakers the foot measurement should be taken either wearing socks, or 5 (mm) allowance should be added to the foot length.

For example: if the foot length without a sock is 25 (cm), then in the size chart You should consider the size that is 25+0.5+0.5=26 (cm) for winter shoes, and 25+0.5=25.5 (cm) for summer shoes.

The difference between men and women sizes:

The difference between men and women size charts is only in the parameter of foot width.

Important: the foot width is considered to be the circumference of the widest forefoot part.

In the proportions of standard women sneakers the foot is initially narrow, for women with wide feet it’s better to choose among men sneakers.
