Sizing and Fit Guide

Sizing

When trying to decide upon the size that is right for you there are a few important factors to consider:

  • Everyone has one foot that is larger than the other. It is CRUCIAL that you always choose the size that fits your larger foot.
  • If you are unsure of which foot is the larger one, you can always take a measuring tape to determining which one is the larger one.
  • It is also important to consider what type of hosiery you will be wearing (ex.tights, cotton sock or wool socks). If you are considering wearing thick, wool socks then you may want to order 1/2 a size up. This factor becomes increasingly important when purchasing boots.
  • All of the shoes that we carry are standard width. That being said there are brands that do fit wider than others. 
  • When in doubt, it is always a good idea to check what sizes the majority of your other shoes are. 

As always, if you have any specific questions, we are here to help. So feel free to email us at maxsfootwearandcobbler@gmail.com

 

American and European Sizing

The chart below is a guideline for an approximate conversion for American and European sizing. As stated above, these are just guidelines, as sizes can differ from brand to brand and even from style to style. If we do notice a trend (ex. fits small vs. fits big) in specific brands or styles a "Helpful Hint" will be placed in the description of that brand or style.

Fitting

We completely understand that it can be hard to determine whether a boot will fit your calf or if the heel is too high for you to walk in. Therefore, for each of our shoes and boots we have provided measurements to help you make the right decision. All measurements are based on a size 6 and it is possible that measurements, such a calf width, can increase as the size increases. Here are a few images to help you take the right measurements.

Ankle Boots:

 

Boots:

 

When considering purchasing tall boots, it is always important to consider a few factors with regards to calf width:

  • Be sure to measure both of your calves! As with our feet, we always have a one calf that is slightly wider than the other
  • Always consider what type of pants you plan to wear with your boots. For example, denim is thicker than tights and may add to the calf width.
