Points to keep in mind while making a purchase online:
It is recommended to measure the foot size after the day-long walking as walking increases the foot size. Before measuring, it is better to wear a sock or stocking that you’ll be wearing inside the shoes. Measure barefoot when you plan to wear your footwear with socks.
Never neglect the time of year, particularly in which season you are purchasing. In the summertime, the feet are frequently swollen. So always measure before buying shoes online. If you’re buying winter footwear, order a larger size as you need to layer up, and will keep your feet warm.
There can be a difference in the shoe size as little as ¼ of an inch, so rounding down or up will increase your probability to get a decent fit.
The majority has slightly asymmetrical feet, purchasing the larger size to get the best fit.
Steps to follow:
- Put your foot on A4/ white sheet and trace your foot. If you have a hard time to outline your foot, ask your friends to help you out.
- With the help of a ruler, measure the length between the longest toe to the heel. Record your measurement.
- Similarly, measure the width of your foot. Record it well.
- Compare your size with the shoe chart size given on the website to find the number that relates to your shoe length and width.
There can be a variety of reasons for a person’s shoe size changes, due to pregnancy, age, obesity, weight gain and so. And there is no such universal shoe size standard, as it keeps changing from manufacturer to manufacturer. Better to measure once than to regret later.
