If you plan to buy shoes online, or go on an international shoe shopping spree, you may want to consult the women's shoe size conversion chart below to get an idea of what your size might be in another country.

This shoe size chart converts women's shoe sizes from those of one country to those of another. I've used it several times myself with much success, and I've scored some great deals on shoes -- although, I must admit that I wear an average shoe size, and can usually buy off the rack without any trouble.

Better Safe Than Sorry
Of course, if you want to buy shoes online, and you want the perfect fit the first time out, you'll want to have your feet measured by a professional. Then, take those measurements and compare them to the manufacturer's size chart for the shoes you want to buy.

Whichever online shoe store you decide to purchase from, be sure you check their return policy before placing your order.
