Step N°1: measure your foot
- Print our sizing chart Stand, with your shoes off, against a wall on a piece of card.
- Take care to keep your heel against the wall and your foot flat on the card Draw a line in front of your big toe.
- Measure the distance in cm between the edge of the card and the line (round up to the nearest mm).
Step N°2: Determine your size
With the help of the table below, you can determine your exact shoe size.
Comment: if you are in between 2 sizes, it is recommended that you go for the higher size.
E.g.: A woman who has a foot of 24.8 cm, will have a shoe size between 38.5 and 39, so it is recommended to take a size 39.
Children's shoes: the right size and the correct comfort
A child's foot grows between 2 and 3 sizes a year and, from the age of 5, between 1 and 2 sizes a year. Furthermore, when a child's skeleton is still supple, they do not, or only very slightly, feel when shoes are getting too small. That is why you have to stay vigilant and regularly examine the shoes they wear. If they become too small, the end of their shoes start to get deformed under the pressure of the toe nails and sometimes even the lining can get torn. So the size of the shoe needs to be changed. A child's foot must be supported but the shoes must not be too tight. To be sure you have the right size, place a finger between your child's heel and the shoe. This space allows for growth and the pushing motion (when walking, this is the motion of the front of the foot when bending whilst making contact with the ground).
Babies feet: how to choose for them?
Up to the age of 36 months, your baby will go from a size 12 to a size 24. You must therefore buy new shoes every 5 months between the age of 1 and 2. To be sure that their shoes are the right size, press the front of your baby's shoe: there must be enough space between the shoe and foot. Also make sure you check that the shoes are on your baby's feet correctly when you slip them on.

How do I choose shoes with heels?
Wearing shoes with heels is, before anything, a matter of being used to them and being comfortable. Most of the time, women prefer to walk with high heels, between 3 and 4 centimetres, which allow a better balance than with small heels. But, if you are a lover of stiletto heels, and you can master the art of elegant and sensual walking, why not buy heels of 9 or 10 centimetres for a special occasion or to go out with the girls. Maybe envisage a small pair of ballerina pumps for the end of the evening...Finally, don't forget that in order to be comfortable in heels, alternate flats with heels. By doing this, you are looking after your joints and back. Similarly, if you are prone to having a bad back, go for ballerina pumps with a small heel of around 1.5 centimetres, rather than extra flat shoes.
