If you want to know your shoe size, the best way to get an accurate measurement is to use a soft measuring tape and measure the length of your foot. You should also measure the width of your foot. This will help you determine whether you need a wide or narrow shoe.
It’s important to measure both feet, as they may differ in size. Your shoes should fit the larger foot. When you measure your feet, wear socks that are similar to the ones you’ll wear with your new shoes. If you are unsure where to find your measurements on a soft measuring tape, here are some helpful tips:
- Local drug store like CVS or Longs Drugs.
- Online at Amazon – https://amzn.to/3qqP69p
After placing the tape at the tip of your heel, pull it across the widest part of your foot, which should be the ball. If not, please call or email us as you may need specific style of shoes to ensure a comfortable fit. Make sure the tape is snug and straight across the width of your foot and write down the width in inches rounding to the nearest quarter of an inch.
