    Shoe Length Info:

  • MP = Mondopoint [ISO 9407 – International Standard for the system of sizing and marking shoe sizes – in millimeters]
  • PP = Paris Point [6.67 millimeters, .26 inches (just over 1/4 inch)]
    • EU shoe size = (Length of foot in Mondopoint [millimeters] + 20 millimeters) divided by (1 Paris Point[6.67 millimeters ])
  • BC (Barleycorn) = 8.47 millimeters, 1/3 inch, 12 Barleycorn = 1 Hand
    • Hand = 101.6 millimeters, 4 inches
    • UK shoe size = (2 hands + [1 Barleycorn per shoe size]) + (1 Barleycorn) [up to size 10.5, then (3 hands + [1 Barleycorn per shoe size] above size 11)][Adult Male or Female]
  • Foot and shoe length differ because a gap between the end of the longest toe on the foot and the inside of the cap of the shoe differ. This gap difference varies between 20mm and 8.5mm depending on how the shoe was made and the method of measurement.
  • 20mm = .79 inches (just over 3/4 inch), 8.5mm = .33 inches (1/3 inch)
  • The average difference between foot length and shoe length should be aproximatly 13 millimeters (1/2 inch). 13 millimeters is equal to about one and a half shoe sizes. This scale uses 13 mm as the standard gap.
  • You will typically need an athlitic shoe 1/2 to a full size larger than a dress/business shoe.
  • Toe Length: The length of a foot, from heel to toe, should be about 1.4 times the length of the same foot from heel to the ball of the foot (center of the large joint behind the big toe). If this ratio is less than 1.35 then the next half shoe size size up may fit better.
    Shoe Width Info:

  • Shoe width is set at 3/8 (.375) of the length of the shoe to determine a “D” size width, so the width of a shoe will always change in relationship to the length of the shoe.
  • Shoe width designations change by 5mm, .19 inches (3/16 inch) for each change in designation, therefore a size B would be 10mm smaller in width
    than a size D, and a EE would be 10mm larger than a size D.
  • Most shoe makers in the UK use a different width designator than the US, with F being the medium size designator in the UK, rather than D which is the medium designator in the US.
    Scale Accuracy:

  • This scale is offered as a reference only, because each shoe maker uses their own set of custom lasts (a “Last” is a shoe form on which a shoe is built) which vary from maker to maker, and style to style.
  • There is also a deviation between US and UK sizes that varies from a half to a full size difference.
