THIS YOU NEED TO KNOW ABOUT SHOE SIZES @ GRAND SHOES
1. YOU DO NOT HAVE THE SAME SHOE SIZE OF ALL SHOES
The shoe world is not perfect. The suppliers do not succeed in agreeing on how big a shoe in, for example, size 48 should actually be. The difference between the fit of a pair of 48s from one brand to another can be improbably large. You can either choose to get angry and frustrated about this, or use our method to find the right size - regardless of model and brand.
2. WE MEASURE THE SHOES - YOU MEASURE THE FEET
We measure by hand all the shoe models we have in stock. You in turn need to measure your LONGEST foot (measurement instructions are below) to then be able to match your foot measurement with our shoe measurements.
3. CHOOSE A SIZE THAT IS 5-9 MM LONGER THAN THE FOOT. FITMYFEET - SEE THE RIGHT SIZE PER MODEL
We have printed out the measured inner dimension of each shoe (yes, it differs from model and brand without logic ...) We recommend scars you choose a shoe size where the inner dimension is 5-9 longer than your longest foot. If you have wide feet, you can add another 5 mm.
HOW TO MEASURE YOUR FEET
- 1 ruler or measuring tape
- 1 wall
- 1 book (or similar block form)
- 1 assistant person (much simpler so)
Stand with both heels close to a wall.
Place a book, block or other suitable object close to the tip of the toe on the longest foot.
Use a measuring tape or similar to measure the length.
Measure again, just to be sure.
COMMON MISSUNDERSTANDINGS WHEN CHOOSING SIZE
If you have read the size guide above, the following should not apply to you :) but if you want to be on the safe side, here are three common mistakes when it comes to understanding our method for you to find the right size:
TO CONFUSE FOOT LENGTH WITH THE INSIDE OF THE SHOES
If your longest foot, for example, is 310 mm, then you can NOT have a pair of shoes where the inner measurement that we measured is also 310 mm. Right? Then the feet do not fit.
SOLUTION: Add 5-9 mm "air" for the toes.
TO MIX "OUR MEASURES" WITH WHAT IS STANDED ON A LABEL IN THE SHOES
As you have probably seen on a tongue or a shoe box, it says, for example, 31.5 cm, or 315 or similar.
These numbers have NOTHING, really NOTHING at all, to do with how long the shoes or feet are. We have measured over 10,000 pairs of shoes since the start in 2007, and we have never seen that these figures correspond to reality sufficiently correctly.
SOLUTION: Trust what we say. These carton / label numbers are not useful. See our measurements instead.
THAT YOU MEASURED IN THE WRONG WAY AND / OR JUST MEASURED ONE FOOT
Measure your feet according to our instructions above - and not in any other way. Usually one foot is longer than the other. Measure both feet, one at a time. You should not add a few mm to "have credit". Measure as accurately as you can.
And whatever you do: DO NOT draw your foot on paper. It gives a result that is completely useless.
SOLUTION: If possible, get help from someone else when measuring.
