GETTING THE RIGHT FIT

Important Fit Tip: Pay Attention to your Arch Length!

  • Visit a full service retailer to have your feet professionally measured so you get the best fit possible.
  • Have your feet measured using a Brannock or similar device and always measure both feet, as they are often different sizes.
  • Try shoes on at the end of the day since your feet normally swell and become larger throughout the day.
  • Stand up during the fitting process and be sure to walk around in the shoes before purchasing.

Important Fit Tip: Pay Attention to your Arch Length!

What is that?

Arch length is the distance from the ball of the foot to the back of the heel. People can have the same overall foot length but different arch lengths depending on whether they have long or short toes. For shoes to fit properly it is critical for the ball of your foot to rest in the widest part of the forepart of the shoe, which is where the shoe is designed to bend during walking.

If you have short toes and buy a shoe that fits to the end of your foot, it may be too short for your arch length. This means the ball of your foot is in front of the ‘flex point’ of the shoe, cramping the toes and compressing the foot, causing discomfort.
