How to measure and find your size

You will need a metric tape, a sheet of paper, pencil and a wall. Use the diagram below to take your length measurement.

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. If you are ordering boots it is advisable to wear your socks when measuring, for shoes and sandals, feet should be barefoot.

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 size, eg: usual size = EU 39 / UK 6, order size EU 38 / UK 5. Half sizes, go down to next whole size. 

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 sandals.

Interior finished size of footwear:

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

Sandals: add +6 mm to above measurement for finished interior length of sole from heel cup to sandal tip (measured at the centre line). To avoid too much open footbed being left beyond your toes, you may need to size down further.
