Every Shoe & Foot are Shaped Differently
Getting a proper measurement of your foot is essential to finding the Perfect Fitting Shoe. However, these measurements only provide a starting point since every shoe is designed differently. Shoes are made with various toe boxes; rounded, pointed, tapered, etc. You also have to take into account the room inside the shoe called the Volume or Depth. Then there's the material that is used including; Leather, Mesh, Lycra, etc. Finally, you have to take into consideration any foot ailments including; swelling, bunions, hammertoes, edema, etc. It can be a daunting task to order shoes online and determine the proper fitting shoe for Your feet. Looking at a picture only shows you the Style but it doesn't address all of the other factors.

How to Measure your Length, Width & Girth
Finding the right fit for your shoes is essential for comfort and avoiding foot problems. To get the best fit, you'll need to measure your feet accurately. Here's how to do it:
Step 1: Measure Length (#9 on image above)
To measure the length of your foot, place a piece of paper on the ground. Sit or stand with your foot on the paper with your heel against the wall. Make sure your weight is evenly distributed on both feet. Mark the end of your longest toe on the paper, then measure the distance between the wall and the mark to find the length of your foot.
Step 2: Measure Width (#8 on image above)
To measure the width of your foot, place a piece of paper on the ground. Sit or stand with your foot on the paper, with your weight evenly distributed on both feet. Mark the width at the ball of your foot (widest part), then measure the distance between the marks to find the width of your foot.
Step 3: Measure Girth (#4 and #5 on image above)
To measure the Oblique girth, wrap a measuring tape from your heel to the top of your foot and around to the floor on the other side of your foot.
To measure the Big girth, wrap a measuring tape around the widest part of your foot and around your foot to the floor on the other side of your foot. Make sure the tape is snug but not too tight.
