It's a fact of life that we all come in different shapes and sizes. It's this beauty and individuality that we strive to cater for at elevate your sole. However, it does sometimes come with its problems!

A question that I'm regularly asked concerns shoe sizing and the apparent lack of a standard size system. Of course, there is such a system and this will be described in the table below. This doesn't mean to say that shoes are all built the same though and EU to UK conversions are often interpreted differently.

Most shoes are built on 'lasts', which is a mould used to give the shoe its style, shape and corresponding internal volume. This could suit your feet perfectly, but for the person with a wider or narrower foot, it may not be suitable.

It's perfectly normal to have different sized feet too, my left foot is about 1/2 a size bigger than my right. Always go for the bigger size.

This may all seem too much like hard work, but there's good news! My best advice is to know your feet. It's really easy to measure them and I have added a handy guide to follow below. Also, I'm fitting these shoes every day and I can quickly recognise whether a style is fitting small or large on my customers and I will share this information on the individual product page.

To measure the length of your feet, place your foot on a level ground with your heel against the wall. With a ruler measure to your longest toe in millimeters and find the corresponding size below.
