How to measure and find your size

You will need a metric tape, a sheet of paper, pencil and a wall. Use the diagram below to take your length measurement.

Place a sheet of paper and your heel against a straight wall. With pencil held upright, mark the longest toe. Do this with both feet as they are often different lengths. Use the longest measurement. If you are ordering boots it is advisable to wear your socks when measuring, for shoes and sandals, feet should be barefoot.

Interior finished size of BOOTS, SHOES & CLOSED TOE SANDALS:

UK 3 - Length: 23.8 cm  
UK 4 - Length: 24.7 cm  
UK 5 - Length: 25.6 cm 
UK 6 - Length: 26.5 cm 
UK 7 - Length: 27.4 cm 
UK 8 - Length: 28.3 cm 

Interior finished size of OPEN TOE SANDALS, footbed from heel cup to front edge (measured at the centre line):

UK 3 - Length: 24.4 cm
UK 4 - Length: 25.3 cm
UK 5 - Length: 26.2 cm
UK 6 - Length: 27.1 cm
UK 7 - Length: 28 cm
UK 8 - Length: 28.9 cm

Sandals such as 'Flittle' are open at the toe, so the exposed footbed is longer. As such, you may have to size down further to avoid too much room being left beyond your toes.

Example; my foot length measurement is 25.5 cm and I am a high street shoe size of UK 7. I wear fairysteps size UK 6 for boots & shoes, but I choose a UK 5 in sandals.
