So, we hear that you have wide feet. Yes, you can't
fit into some shoes. Fortunately, you are not the only one with wide feet.
Shoe companies understand that feet come in many different shapes and sizes.
Therefore, some shoe brands are smart enough to make footwear in wide widths for
special people such as yourself.
A shoe size is an indication of the fitting size of a shoe
for a person.
There are a number of different shoe-size systems used worldwide.
While all of them use a number to indicate the length of the shoe, they differ in
exactly what they measure, what unit of measurement they use, and where the size
0 (or 1) is positioned. Some systems also indicate the shoe width, sometimes also
as a number, but in many cases by one or more letters. Some regions use different
shoe-size systems for different types of shoes (e.g. men's, women's, children's,
sport, and safety shoes).
Some systems also include the width of a foot, but do so
in a variety of ways:
Measured width in millimeters (mm). This is done with the
Mondopoint system. The International Standard is ISO 9407:1991,
"Shoe sizes—Mondopoint system of sizing and marking", which recommends a shoe-size
system known as Mondopoint. It is based on the mean foot length and width for which
the shoe is suitable, measured in millimetres. A shoe size of 280/110 indicates
a mean foot length of 280 millimetres (11.0 in) and width of 110 millimetres (4.3
in). Because Mondopoint also takes the foot width into account, it allows for better
fitting than most other systems. It is, therefore, used by NATO and other military
services. Mondopoint is also used for ski boots.
Measured width as a letter (or combination of letters), which
is taken from a table (indexed to length and width) or just assigned on an ad-hoc
basis: Examples are (each starting with the narrowest width):
A, B, C, D, E, EE, EEE, EEEE, F, G
4A, 3A, 2A, A, B, C, D, E, 2E, 3E, 4E, 5E, 6E (variant
C, D, E, F, G, H (common UK; "medium" is usually F, but
varies by manufacturer—makers Edward Green and Crockett & Jones, among others,
use E instead, but one maker's E is not necessarily the same size as another's).
N (narrow), M (medium) or R (regular), W (wide)
The width for which these sizes are suitable can
vary significantly between manufacturers. The A–E width indicators used
by most American, Canadian, and some British shoe manufacturers are typically based
on the width of the foot, and common step sizes are 3⁄16 inch (4.8 mm).
Some shoe stores use optical devices to precisely measure
the length and width of both feet and recommend the appropriate shoe model and size.
