The sizes of shoes

  • metric system: based on determining the size considering the foot length in (cm), the size equals foot length in centimeters;
  • stichmass system: the size equals the length of the inner footprint (insole) in stichmass. 1 stich=(6.67mm). This format is considered to be the main format for European Manufacturers;
  • english inches system: the shoe size equals the foot length in inches. 1 inch=2.54 (mm). The count starts from 4 inches, that means if the foot length is 4 inches the size would be 0;
  • american inches system: similar to English. The count starts from 3 11/12 inches;
  • american inches system for women: is used for large size shoes and the size count start is moved closer to zero.

Determining shoe size:

For determining shoe size there are 3 main parameters that are very important:

  • foot length;
  • foot dimension (at the bone);
  • foot dimension (at the rise).

Stichmass shoe size measurement system:

Stichmass system is a system, in which the size is measured in stichs (1 stich = 6.67 mm).

Unlike metric system, where the main measurement is foot length, stichmass system is based on measuring the length of the insole.

The allowance for the forefoot is added to the obtained measures. The allowance generally equals 10 (mm).

Important: this is the main system for European manufacturers.
