How to Measure Foot Size: A Short Guide

We aren’t gonna take too long, because it’s legit a short process. But, you gotta be a bit accurate with your measurements to get the right size. So the prepping steps here will be:

  • Put the socks you’re gonna wear with the kicks on
  • Try to take the measurements at the end of the day when feet are at their largest
  • Tape the paper you have on the floor so it doesn’t slip under your foot


Now, for the actual process, it’s pretty easy from here! Here’s what you need to do:

  • Plant your foot on the piece of paper and make sure it doesn’t budge
  • Hold the pencil straight down and draw the outline of your foot
  • Do the same process with the other foot
  • Mark the farthest tip of the toes and the farthest point of the heel to find the length of the foot
  • Also mark the widest points of the foot (forefoot) to measure its width
  • Compare both feet sizes and use the bigger one since your feet will most likely be a bit different in size
  • Use the size charts below to find your shoe size
