How to Find Your Shoe Size: Home Remedy.


Learn how to measure your foot at home.

At one time or another we've all tried to wear shoes that were too small or too big for us. It's no fun, and you risk potential injury. Knowing your exact shoe size is essential to buying shoes. Finding your shoe size before you shop saves you time in the store and helps you avoid buying a pair that doesn't fit having to return them. Just follow the steps below to find out your shoe size

1. Tape a piece of paper down to the floor. You are going to trace an outline of your foot to measure, so avoid doing this on carpet or any other surface that will be difficult to write on.


2. Place your foot firmly on top of the piece of paper. Your leg should be bent slightly and your shin should be in front of your ankle. Try to put your foot perpendicular to any lines on your paper. You can stand, sit on a chair or crouch down.

 3
Draw the outline of your foot all the way around. You can wear the socks you are planning to wear with the shoes you would like to buy, but don't wear shoes.
 4
Mark the length and width of your foot on the paper. Use your marker to draw straight line touching each side of the outline.
 5
Measure the length of your foot. Use a tape measure or ruler to measure from the top to bottom. Write this number down. This number will largely determine your shoe size.
 6
Measure the width of your foot. Measure between the lines on the left and right sides and write the number down. Many shoes come in different widths, so this number will determine which version to buy.
 7
Subtract 3/16ths of an inch from each number. This is to accommodate the small space between the line made by the pencil and your actual foot.
This is for those of us who do not know our actual shoe size..i hope this helps...i don't know how to really draw so i had to look for what will explain in details for us.
