Supplies Needed to Measure Your Feet
Tape Down Paper to Measure for Shoe Size
Measuring your feet at home isn't difficult. In fact, it's very easy to calculate your shoe size without any special equipment.

Once you have your measurements, you can refer to any manufacturer's size charts to find out which shoe width and size you'll take in their line.

But remember, our feet are actually three dimensional, and most size charts only account for two of those dimensions. For that reason, your best bet is always going to be trying any shoes on before you purchase them.

Having said that, I know that a lot of you still want to figure out your shoe size yourself, so let's get started.

All you need to properly measure your feet at home is:
  • two pieces of paper, each one larger than your feet
  • a pencil
  • tape
  • and a ruler or measuring tape.
Tape the paper down to the floor. (Next)
