How to measure your feet:

1.The best time to measure is the afternoon or evening.  If you measure your feet in the morning, they will be smaller, which would give you the wrong size.

2. Choose flat and firm surface to stand on. Don't do it on a carpet or other soft surface.

3. Wear thin socks or stockings.  Only measure your feet while barefoot if you plan to wear shoes over your bare feet

4. The best position for accurate measurements is standing.  It will be easier if you have a friend present to trace your foot for you.

5. Put your foot on a piece of paper and  draw  the outline of your foot with a thin pen, keeping the pen straight.

6. Measure both feet. Most people's feet are slightly asymmetrical.

7. Measure the longest distance from the heel to the tip of your big toe with a ruler.  Use shoe length chart  to find the number that corresponds to your shoe length.

  Girth measurements:

- Ball girth measurement
The circumference of the foot around the middle of the big and small toe joints. This joint is prominently visible on the inside of the foot just adjacent to the big toe.

- Waist  girth
The circumference of the smallest part of that portion of the foot which lies between the instep and the ball.

 - Instep Girth Measure
The girth measurement of a foot taken at the middle of the waist through the instep( front part of the arch of the foot).

- Heel Girth Measurement
The girth measurement around the tip of the back of the heel and the middle of the curve of the foot (where the leg joints with the foot).
