Sizing and Fit TipsBefore You Buy
Pick out a comfortable pair of shoes from your closet and see what size and brand they are. Start with that size but remember that feet change over time.
Brands vary. Sizes are consistent within a single brand, but they could vary up to one full size between brands due to manufacturing quirks. Check product descriptions and customer reviews for fit tips.When They Arrive
While some materials will relax with use, your shoes should be comfortable right out of the box. Shoes that hurt now will more than likely hurt a month from now, so make sure they're comfortable.
Athletic shoes generally run short so try sizing up by half a size.
Running shoes should feel snugger than street shoes. It's important that the shoe not pinch or cramp the toes or let the feet slide forward, jamming the toes against the front. Hiking boots should be a little longer than other shoes. When you're headed down a hill, you want a little extra room at the toe.
Dress boots are designed with a broader heel counter to allow your heel to drop right in, so they may be a little snug at the forefoot. It's normal for the heel to slip slightly until the boot breaks in and molds to your heel.
Lace-up shoes should be tried on unlaced. Tap the back of your heel lightly to set it in the proper spot in the shoe, then lace the shoe comfortably.
Slip-on shoes shouldn't allow any excess foot movement as you don't want the front of your foot sliding around.
