Sizes Shoes & Gloves
Find the right size for the best walking comfort:
An outdoor shoe or sports shoe simply has to fit! This is especially true for hiking shoes, as your foot has to withstand great stress when you march over hill and dale and climb the highest peaks. Since the specified EU and UK sizes can be larger or smaller depending on the manufacturer, the size specifications given by the manufacturer are not always a good basis for a purchase decision. To be absolutely sure, use the measurement of the inner sole length, also known as the Mondopoint, as a guide.
This is how you determine your insole length:
First put on a pair of thick hiking socks, preferably the ones you also wear when hiking. Then take a piece of paper and put your foot on it. Now mark where your heel ends and where your big toe ends with a line. Hold the pencil as vertically down as possible so that the length is as accurate as possible. Now measure the distance between the two marks and add 5 mm to the value. Now take this value and use the following tables to find your optimal shoe size:
