There are a handful of ways to find your foot measurement. You can get it done professionally by a podiatrist, use a Brannock device at a store or even measure from home.

When measuring your shoe size at home, you’ll need the following items:

  • Two pieces of paper larger than your foot
  • Tape
  • Writing utensil
  • Ruler

Before taking your measurement, put on the socks you plan on wearing with your shoes. It’s also recommended to wait until the end of the day when your foot is at its widest point.

FIRST METHOD “wet foot”


  1. Place a sheet of paper on the floor.
  2. Make your foot wet.
  3. Put your foot on the sheet of paper. Stand up straight and balanced on both of your feet.
  4. Make a mark behind your heel and another in front of your longest toe. If one of your feet is larger than the other, use the longer foot to measure your size.
  5. Measure the distance between the two lines in inches or centimetres.

Example: My foot has 27 cm, but I need some extra space for fingers – like 12 mm. So the shoe insole should have 282 mm, which makes the 43 EU size perfect for me.
