International shoe size conversion guide

See what your shoe size is in EU, UK, AU or Japanese sizes.

We’ve put together the ultimate shoe size conversion chart and sizing info for men and women.

Here’s a handy tip – try to remember these simple rules for US shoe sizing:

  • US women’s shoe sizes = AU women’s size scale
  • Subtract 1 size from US men’s shoe sizes to find UK men’s size scale

European sizes are widely recognized internationally, so it’s worth remembering your European shoe size if shopping abroad.

Shoe size conversion FAQs

What if I'm in between sizes?

It's generally best to size up if your feet measure in between shoe sizes. Many brands offer half sizes to accommodate in-between sizes, but if this option is not available, you can size up one whole size and use insoles to help the shoe fit more snugly. We love Superfeet insoles because they offer one of the widest ranges of sizes and styles available.

How do men's shoe sizes compare to women's?

In the US, men’s shoe sizes are approximately 1.5-2 sizes smaller than women’s. For example, a US men’s 7 would be a US women’s 8.5.

Do shoe sizes vary by brand?

Shoe sizes may vary slightly by brand, so it's worth checking the shoe size conversion chart on the brand's website before buying.

Do shoe sizes correspond with inches?

No, shoe sizes don’t directly represent the length of your foot in inches. To measure your foot in inches, we’d recommend using a tape measure. You can find approximate foot lengths in millimeters in the chart above.
