|STEP 1. Gather up the following items: a pensil, tape, ruler or measuring tape and a piece of paper larger than your foot. Tape the paper down to the floor and get ready to measure your foot.|
|STEP 2. Stand with your foot firmly on the paper and trace the outline of your foot without shoes. Men should wear the socks they plan to wear with the shoes and women should not wear any socks.
Hold the pencil upright and perpendicular to the paper. Do not hold it at an angle. Make sure the pencil is resting snugly against your foot as you draw around it.
|STEP 3. Use your pencil to draw straight lines touching the outermost points at the top, bottom, and both sides of the outline.|
|STEP 4. Use your ruler or measuring tape to measure the length from the bottom line to the top line that you drew in step three. Be sure to hold the measuring tape straight, and find the closest mark that you can (for inches, use the closest 16th mark) - don't round up or down dramatically.
Write this number down.
|STEP 5. Many people will need a narrow or wide shoe. This step will help you to determine the width of your foot.Measure the width of your foot by using your measuring tape to measure from the line on one side of your tracing, to the line on the other side. Again, be certain to find the closest mark that you can (for inches, use the closest 16th mark). Write this number down.|
|STEP 6. Repeat these steps for your other foot, and use the larger of the two. After you have your numbers written down, you'll want to subtract 3/16 of an inch from the numbers. This is to accomodate for the slight space between your actual foot and the line made by the pencil. These final numbers are your actual foot measurements, you can convert them to the appropriate size and width using the sizing charts below.|
