The right size
Big feet questions big shoes
Many people with bigger feet are used to run small shoes because the supply was very limited in their size. Fortunately the supply in big sizes has grown significantly this last decade, so please choose the right size. Your longest toe should never touch the toe of the shoe. Especially for comfortable shoes you walk in about an inch extra in length is needed. With ballerinas or high heels a little less overlength is possible because otherwise the shoe slips but even then some space in front is to be recommended. Most of the brands we carry, do half sizes so the optimal fit can be found. You can select whole sizes in the webshop but also half sizes are also shown. One size 43 is not the other and sometimes also fits 42.5 or 43.5 just fits better. This is due to the different lasts and different sizeread principles that manufacturers apply. But with most brands sizes are often quite accurate. So if e.g. Gabor size 43 fits, similar models of that brand will also fit.
If you use measure by searching our collection, whole and half sizes and the French (43, 43.5) and the English bar size (9,9,5) are merged. So are you looking for size 43.5 then select 43 and then the site displays all the models in size from 43 to 43.5 - 9 to 9.5.
