Every individual product page has an information ‘tab’ to give specific guidance on the fit of that style (scroll below the images, second ‘tab’ from the left). Please read this before ordering. On this page, there is also the length of the insole/inside of the shoe for each size. The actual length of the shoe will be a little longer than the insole (maybe 1-3 mm).


  • Place a sheet of paper against a straight wall. Stand on it with your heel against the wall.
  • Take a ballpoint pen refill.
  • Mark the longest toe, the widest part of the foot, and both sides of the heel.
  • It is best to trace the entire foot. Also, it is best if someone else draws your foot.
  • Now measure your foot length from the middle of the heel in a straight line through your longest toe.
  • Next, measure the width.
  • If your toes aren’t the widest part of your foot, it’s time to give them more space in the shoe so that they can be restored.

Compare with the stated length of the insole/inside of the shoe (see chart below) and make sure you leave plenty of mm space in front of your toes (research suggests 10-12mm as a minimum).

In the case of children, a growth margin of up to 5mm can be added. Adjust for the thickness of sock you like to wear (or no sock, if preferred!).

Our shoes are made to European sizing to offer more sizes (EU size is approx 3/4 a UK size).

The UK and USA sizes are therefore only the nearest approximation. Generally you may need to order one size larger than your usual EU size.


For our older styles (ie Connect2, Respond, Urban, Chukka, Leap, Stride, Talus2, Nomad Khaki) if you prefer ‘roomy’ go two sizes larger. With all our newer styles they are more generous fitting so go just one size larger or stay with your ‘normal’ shoe size.

With Mudee, Elgon and Bootee M, generally people go one size larger, and should be ok with a mid weight sock. No need to go two sizes larger, again unless you prefer very roomy.

When you receive your shoes, try them on indoors.

Remember fit is a personal preference. Some people prefer to wear our shoes snug fitting while others prefer a more ‘roomy’ fit; both are fine.

Because our shoes are completely flexible, if your shoe is a little longer than ‘ideal’ you don’t get the heel lift you might get in traditional stiff shoes, so can be just as comfortable.

And please remember to cut your toe nails – especially the big toe!

Please call 00441748900421 or email us if you want to discuss.


IF POSSIBLE, PLEASE WORK FROM THE EU SIZES (THE UK AND USA ARE NEAREST CONVERSIONS). The MM lengths are the length of the insole. For more detailed information on fitting and width measurements, please see the individual product page. 

Our older styles are approximately one EU size smaller than the charts’ measurements below. These older smaller styles are: Connect2, Leap2, Stride2, Nomad Khaki, Respond, Urban, Chukka and Talus2
