The ultimate international shoe size conversion guide

Trying to figure out what your shoe size is in Europe? Or the USA?

We’ve put together the ultimate shoe size conversion chart and sizing info for men and women.

Here's a handy tip - try to remember these simple rules for Australian shoe sizing:

  • AU Women shoe sizes = US womens size scale
  • AU Men’s shoe sizes = UK mens size scale

European sizes are quite recognised internationally, so it’s worth remembering your European shoe size if shopping abroad.

Do shoe sizes go by inches? No, shoe sizes don’t directly represent the length of your foot in inches. To measure your foot in inches, we’d recommend using a tape measure. You can find approximate foot lengths in millimetres in the chart above.


Do shoe sizes vary by brand?

Occasionally shoe sizes can seem to vary brand by brand by up to half a size, so when possible, it’s always worth trying the shoes on first. Alternatively, look for online retailers with free returns policies. For the chart above, we’ve done our research and based the conversion on the majority of online retailers, but if you’re thinking of buying from a specific retailer, it's worth checking their own conversion chart if they have one.


How do Mens shoe sizes compare to Womens?

In Australian mens sizes are approximately two sizes bigger than womens. For example an Australian women’s size 9 would be an Australian men’s size 7. It’s often hard to tell if a supplier is listing their shoe size in AU, UK or US sizes - so we find the best way is to check your European shoe size and use that as a guide.


Does shoe size determine height?

While shoe size is not a definite factor in height, there has been a general correlation drawn by data analysts such as StatCrunch. Often taller people tend to have larger feet, however this is not absolute.


How can I convert shoe sizes?

The easiest way to convert shoe sizes is to use a shoe size conversion chart, like the one above.
