Many factors influence a shoe’s fitting characteristics including the materials, the construction method and the design. Consequently, our conversion table is to the nearest UK size and can only be regarded as an indication.
Please note we cannot advise what size you are compared to other brands, your foot measurements or drawings of your feet. We recommend you choose your normal size and go from there. The only way we can advise your size is if you visit one of our stores and be fitted.
To give you peace of mind, however, we provide a 30 day returns policy – providing footwear is not damaged or worn outside the home. This policy is in addition to your statutory rights.
Look for styles with a 'Derby' or 'Gibson' type lace which allow more adjustment eg Liverpool, Ewan, or Avon. Avoid Oxford styles such as Broad, Arthur III, and Balmoral.
I prefer a wider shoe. What would you recommend?
Look for shoes available in a wider G Fit. The standard F fitting 12508 last is also considered 'generous'.
Advice on styles, lasts and fitting
