Measure the distance between longest and widest points. Compare the measurements to the list below. It is best to measure your feet in the afternoon, when they are at their widest. Measuring width: Please note that the below measurements are of the soles of the shoe, in the uppers (inside the toe box) there is about 1-1.5cm more space. Often, you will find that your feet seem to be wider than our measurements. If they are no more than 1-1.5 cm wider than the measurements, you will fit perfectly in the standard width.
