You will need:
  • A piece of paper
  • A pencil or pen
  • A tape measure

In order to measure the length of your foot, place the sheet of paper on the floor and stand on it. If you will be wearing the footwear with socks or pantyhose have these on your feet as well. Place your foot on the paper mark your longest toe on the paper and where the back of your heel touches the paper and then measure the length between the marks.

Remember to do this with both feet as most people have one foot longer than the other and this is the foot that footwear size should be selected on.
