Sometimes it can be difficult buying shoes from different countries as shoe sizes use a different measurement. The sizing for shoes is different for the USA, UK, and Europe. For example: Let’s say you wanted to buy a nice pair of sneakers on Amazon for a man. The mens size says 43 is the size of the shoe. How do you know how to match up the shoe size numbers to the size you need? If the sneakers I want are 43, this would mean it is using the Europe sizing chart and in the USA the size is 9 in men’s shoe size. You can figure all this out by using the chart below.
What if you want to buy your wife or girlfriend a pair of USA women’s 7.5 shoes online (that would fit her) but the size says men’s 9. If you bought the men’s shoe size 9, that would fit her as they are size 7.5 in US womens size.
The purpose of this page is to show you how to understand and match up shoe sizes from other countries that do not use the same shoe size measurement as your country.
There is around a 1.5 dissimilar sizing in between a women’s & men’s shoe size.
- EXAMPLE: A men’s shoe size 9 is closely equivalent to a women’s shoe size 10.5.
- NOTE: The width of shoes stay the same when you convert the sizes. If you wear a mens C width, this will remain the same for a womens C width.
