Steps To Follow To Measure Your Feet

Step 1 - Prepare list of things you will need to measure your feet

  • A paper sheet, preferably A4

  • A ruler or a measuring tape

  • A pen or pencil

Step 2 - Measuring Your Foot Length

  • In order to measure the length of your foot, take a sheet of paper that is bigger than your foot, preferably A4 size. 

  • Place it against a flat and hard surface such as a wall or floor, whichever is comfortable for you.

  • Position your barefoot on the paper to get the perfect size.

  • Ensure that you are not wearing any socks or slippers, as they can affect the length of your foot, adding a few millimeters.

  • Now, take a pen or pencil to trace the shape of your foot.

  • Maintain a vertical position by holding the pen at 90 degrees, making constant connection with your foot throughout. If possible, ask someone else to do this for you to get the most accurate measurement.

  • Now you have an outline of your foot on the paper. Measure the distance from the tip of your big toe to the outermost part of your heel, with the help of a ruler or measuring tape. This measurement denotes the length of your foot.

  • Use centimeters as a measuring unit rather than inches for a more accurate measurement.

  • Repeat the same process for your other foot.

  • Remember, it is normal for both your feet to differ a few millimeters in size.

Step 3 - Measuring Your Foot Width

  • To measure the width of your foot, consider using a measuring tape that is flexible.

  • To get the most accurate readings, make sure your foot is on the ground with your full weight, flattened out in its best walking form.

  • Gently wrap the tape around the widest part of your foot. It is usually the length across your biggest toe joint to your smallest toe joint.

  • Take a note of the centimeters that you measure on the tape.

  • Repeat the same process for your other foot.

Understanding Various Sandals and Wedges Sizing 

The process does not end at measuring your feet alone, you will further have to match your feet size with that of the footwear brand. Most brands differ in their measurements. Check out the brand’s size chart provided by the retailer, before placing an order. Do not miss out on the extra “size notes” provided, in case you fall between two sizes. Consider additional features like the width of the footwear and other attributes like adjustable straps or buckles if given the option.

You can also visit shoe stores to get a perfect idea of the fit by wearing sandals or wedges of a similar style. When doing so, take a note on how they feel on your feet while walking and if they show any signs of discomfort. This will help in choosing the perfect pair when buying online. In case you are having complications in finding your ideal fit due to specific foot features, do not hesitate to seek out advice from a professional shoe fitter or podiatrist. They will suggest the ideal brands and footwear for a perfect fit.
