    How do you measure your shoe size?

    A:

    To measure shoe size, wear socks of standard thickness and stand straight against the wall on top of a piece of paper. Mark the distance between the heel and the longest toe. Be sure to measure both the left and right feet, as they can differ slightly. Use a shoe-sizing chart to match the foot-length measurement to a size.
