These run large to normal sizing. Please see the size chart below for your best size - but we recommend taking one size up if you have wide feet.
How to measure your foot:
1. Place a piece of A4/letter paper on the floor with one end against the wall
2. Stand on the paper with your heel tight against the wall
3. Using a pen/pencil, mark the maximum length of your toe on the paper
4. Using a tape-measure, measure the length from the pen/pencil mark to the wall. This is your heel to toe length.
5. Compare the length you have just measured to the 'Foot Length' column in the size chart and find your range.
If you have wide feet and your foot length is at the larger extremity of the chart, please choose one size bigger.
