Many brands can often use different measurements and this coupled with trying to convert EU/UK sizes can make it really difficult to find what fits.

So we’ve put together this handy information page to try to give you more of an idea of what brands usually favour and the conversions for EU sizes. Hopefully it will give you more of an understanding into the varying world of shoe sizes!

It isn’t always possible to measure our feet for every specific pair of shoes, as brands tend to differ from each other usually depending on the countries that they are designed in. For example if you have a narrow foot and find it difficult to find shoes that stay on, then an Italian brand like Capollini may be an option for you as they tend to design shoes with a smaller width. On the other hand, if you tend to need a bit of extra width, then German brands like Rieker/Josef Seibel may be worth trying as they tend to accomodate a broader width fitting. Whilst it’s common knowledge that German brand Birkenstock come up a size too big, it is also worth mentioning that Skechers tend to come up about a size bigger due to them being designed in the U.S.

These are all brands that we know and love, and have stocked in our shop over the last 39 years, so we have grown to know how they fit our customers. Whilst they may be unavailable on our website at the current time, please feel free to contact us and we will assist you in what ever way we can over the phone.
