Our size selecters and tables are designed to give you conversions that are correct for the top of the base size, so if you are at the small end of your size you may fit a size lower from other size systems. This is especially true for European sizes as they have a large interval for each size.
Mens shoe sizes are generally based around a fixed measurement system, some of which have their origins in the middle ages, ladies shoe sizes on the other hand are mostly based on the mens shoe size in the same country. For UK, European, Japanese and Mondopoint ladies shoe sizes are measured on the same scale as mens shoe sizes.
European shoe sizes are widely used across Europe including Western European Countries (France, Spain, Portugal, Italy, Belgium, The Netherlands, Luxembourg, Germany, Denmark, Norway, Sweden, Finland), Eastern European Countries (Czech Republic, Slovakia, Hungary, Slovenia, Austria, Croatia, Bosnia, Serbia, Bulgaria, Romania, Poland, Ukraine, Belarus, Latvia, Lithuania, Estonia, Russia) and Turkey.
Korea uses the Mondopoint system.
Australian mens shoe sizes are the same as UK shoe sizes, they have been given a seperate line in the conversion table because Australian womens shoe sizes are different.
Ski boots and ice skates are most often found in mondopoint sizes, although some european manufacturers still use european sizes.
Designer fashion shoes, such as Gina, Jimmy Choo, Christian Louboutin and Gucci, are mainly French and Italian and use european sizing. For designer clothes sizes, Dress Sizes has more information.
Shoe sizes also vary from manufacturer to manufacturer due to methods of production, stitching and age of machinery.
