We make shoes and boots in sizes UK 3 to UK 8 (no half sizes). Footwear is made to a standard D width fitting, but many of our styles have been especially designed to be adaptable for various width fitting and are adjustable. See each item description.
How to measure
You will need a metric tape, a sheet of paper, pencil and a wall. Use the diagram below to take your length measurement, then compare to size chart below to find the perfect fit. Leathers always give with wear, so an initial snug fit is desirable to allow for this.
NOTE: Customers nearly always 'size down' in faerysteps, so as a general rule, order one size down from your usual commercial shoe size, eg: usual size = EU 39 / UK 6, order size = EU 38 / UK 5
Place a sheet of paper and your heel against a straight wall. With pencil held upright, mark the longest toe. Do this with both feet as they are often different lengths. Use the longest measurement as a guide. If you are ordering boots it is advisable to wear your socks when measuring, for shoes, feet should be barefoot.
Interior finished size of BOOTS, SHOES & CLOSED TOE SANDALS:
UK 3 - Length: 23.8 cm UK 4 - Length: 24.7 cm UK 5 - Length: 25.6 cm UK 6 - Length: 26.5 cm UK 7 - Length: 27.4 cm UK 8 - Length: 28.3 cm
Interior finished size of OPEN TOE SANDALS, footbed from heel cup to front edge (measured at the centre line):
UK 3 - Length: 24.4 cm UK 4 - Length: 25.3 cm UK 5 - Length: 26.2 cm UK 6 - Length: 27.1 cm UK 7 - Length: 28 cm UK 8 - Length: 28.9 cm
Sandals such as 'Flittle' are open at the toe, so the exposed foot bed is longer. As such, you may have to size down further to avoid too much room being left beyond your toes. This also applies to certain slip on styles, such as Florence. See individual listings for specific sizing information.
Example; my foot length measurement is 25.5 cm and I am a high street shoe size of UK 7. I wear faerysteps size UK 6 for boots & shoes, but I choose a UK 5 in open toed sandals & slip on's.
