What shoe size should I order?

We no longer provide shoe last sizing recommendations based on foot measurements alone. This is because the shapes of the foot and shoe last also have an impact on what size is best (along with many other factors). A tracing could help us make a recommendation, but by the time we start inputting measurements and analyzing tracings and comparing to specific shoe last designs, we’re well along the path of the full bespoke process. So we tend to just suggest bespoke lasts unless you are familiar with what shoe size typically works best for you. Customers with an interest in sizing might consider reading the following resources which could help them decide on a shoe last size on their own:

measuring girths

tracing the foot and taking measurements

adding allowances to foot measurements

It’s also helpful to compare the foot shape to the top view of the shoe last in the product images to determine if the shape is appropriate and if any extra space in the toe will be required. We also have plans (but no timeline) to add insole patterns along with an explanation on how to scale them to any given shoe last size and width.
