How to Measure Your Foot to Find the Right Shoe Size

Follow these simple instructions to measure your feet — then check out our Official size guide to determine which shoe size is best for you!
Whether you’re looking for classic footwear or casual, everyday kicks, it’s important to wear well-fitting shoes that comfortably support your feet. Shoes that don’t fit properly can leave your feet feeling uncomfortable, aching or blistered. And unfortunately, wearing the wrong size shoe is more common than you might think.
So, how do you know if you’re wearing the right shoe size? Finding the correct shoe size starts with accurately measuring your feet. Read on to learn how to measure your foot size and how to find your shoe size in Nike footwear. Plus, check out additional tips for picking out comfortable, supportive shoes that meet your needs.
1. Tape a piece of paper to a hard floor, ensuring the paper doesn’t slip.
2. Stand with one foot on the paper (ensure the full weight) and a slight bend in your knees. You can also sit in a chair, but make sure your feet are firmly planted on the ground.
3. With a pen or pencil pointed straight down, trace the outline of your foot on the paper. (If possible, ask another person to help you with this step. That way, you can keep your feet still and have the most accurate measurement.
4. Repeat the process with the other foot. It’s common for a person’s feet to be two slightly different sizes. (If your feet are two different sizes, use the foot measurements of the larger foot when comparing your measurements against a size chart).
5. Mark the tip of the big toe and the outermost part of the heel, and use a ruler or measuring tape to measure the distance between the two points. This measurement represents the length of your feet. (For the most precise measurement, consider using a ruler with centimeters).

 

Besides measurements, shoe fit is subjective. It’s normal for preferences to vary from person to person. You may prefer extra roominess or tightness in your footwear, depending on how you like the shoe to feel. Your best bet: Use your foot measurements as a guide, but be sure to try on several pairs to find what feels most comfortable on your feet.
