How to Measure Your Foot

  • While seated, place your foot on a piece of paper in front of you.
  • With a pencil, trace around your foot. Hold the pencil as straight up-and-down as possible while measuring and be sure that your pencil remains in constant contact with your foot during this process.
  • With a ruler, measure your tracing to determine your foot length and width.
    • Foot length
      • To convert to centimeters, multiply the measurement by 2.54.
    • Foot width
      • To find your foot width, measure the distance between the two widest points on your tracing. Reduce this number by 5 mm, or 1/5-inch. The result is the number you will use to determine your foot width.

Measurement Tips

  • Take your measurements at the end of the day, when your feet are the largest.
  • Wear the socks you'll wear with your new shoes when you measure.
  • Measure both feet and fit shoes to the larger foot.
  • If you are doing the measurement by yourself, you will get more accurate results if you sit in a chair when measuring. Don't stand.
  • If you have someone to help you take your foot measurement, standing is the best choice.
  • You may take measurements in inches or centimeters. To convert inches to centimeters, multiply inches by 2.54.
