When one talks about shoe size, he is talking about the alphanumeric indication of the fitting size of a shoe
for a person. More often than not, it is an indicator of the length of the feet. The shoe makers often do not
provide different widths in somekeyword, for economic reasons. The shoe size systems used around the

made in what is measured, the unit of measurement used and where does the size start, either 0 or 1. There

How to Derive Shoe Size


I am sure you have a question somekeyword.To derive the shoe size, it is the length of the foot, which is
taken into consideration. It is actually the distance between two parallel lines, which are perpendicular to the
foot and is in contact with the most prominent toe and the most prominent part of the heel. To measure the
foot length, the subject has to stand barefoot and the weight of the body equally distributed on both the feet.
More often than not the size of one foot is slightly bigger than the other. For most people, it is the left foot
which is slightly bigger than the right foot. Hence, both feet are measured and the shoe size is decided based
on the measurement of the larger foot. Each shoe size is suitable for a small interval of foot lengths. Any
normal size shoe has an inner cavity, which is typically 15 to 20 mm longer than the foot. This relation is
different for different types of shoes.
