Adult Sizing Chart
Making sure that you are getting the proper size can be a challenge. Just like most other clothing items you deal with - size can vary dramatically from brand to brand.
Please keep in mind that this is a general guideline and that some brands run small and others run large. The size conversion table above can be used for most European brands that we carry in our store. The exception may be Birkenstock which tends to run little large. Certain styles in assorted brands may also run large.
The key is really to try them on!
The general overall fit of more orthopedic shoes tends to feel different than what you may be used to. European shoes tend to run more narrow in the heel with a wide toe box. This fit allows for the heel to be held snug in place without scrunching the toes. Most orthopedic brands also provide more arch support than their general "comfort" counterparts. Orthopedic shoes generally have a deeper toe box and less cushion than other shoes. Keep in mind that these are generalizations that are not true for every orthopedic shoe brand.
Our desire is to make sure that you are in the best fitting shoe possible!
