- Sitting, place your foot on a sheet of paper.
- Holding a pencil perpendicular to the sheet of paper draw along the contours of your foot. While drawing, make sure your pencil is in contact with your foot.
- Using a ruler measure the length of your foot from the tip of your longest toe to the end of your heel.
Other necessary measurements:
- Circumference of your foot at the base of your toes (measurement 8)
- Circumference at instep (measurement 7)
- Circumference at instep, measured around your heel (measurement 6)
- Circumference around ankle (measurement 5)
In case of boots with shafts (jackboots and similar) additional measurements are necessary:
- Height from ground to the back side of your knee (measurement 1)
- Circumference of lower calf (measurement 4)
- Circumference of the widest part of your calf (measurement 3)
- Circumference below knee (measurement 2)
- Take your measurements in the evening- your feet are slightly larger then, after whole day of walking.
- Make sure to wear thick socks while measuring. Ideally these should be the same socks you intend to wear with your boots.
- Always measure both feet – they can be slightly different in size.
- If you are taking your measurements alone, they are more accurate if taken while sitting.
- If there is someone to help you, you can take your measurements in standing position.
- Remember to take your measurements in centimeters.
- Be aware that boot sizes are relative to their shape and construction, this is why we don't make them by sole sizes but by the measurements you have taken. Be sure to take your measurements carefully and precisely.
- In case of boots with shafts or high uppers- take your calf measurement wearing trousers you intend to use with the boots. Depending on the type of trousers and material used it can change your measurement even by a few centimeters in circumference.
- If you are not sure of your measurements, please contact us before placing an order. We do not take responsibility for any mistakes in your measurements.
