Measuring your feet can be tricky so here are a few very simple steps to help get your feet measured accurately before purchasing our shoes here on ChristyNg.com. You may apply the following steps when ordering our custom made shoes as well.
STEP 1:- Gather basic supplies
To start with, all you need is :-
a piece of paper larger than your foot
and a ruler or measuring tape.
Tape the paper down to the floor.
STEP 2:- Drawing the outline
Sit with your foot firmly on the floor, and your leg bent slightly forward so that your shin is slightly in front of your ankle.Trace the outline of your foot and remember to measure your foot without shoes, but with socks similar to the ones you’ll be wearing with the shoes you are buying.Hold the pencil or pen upright and perpendicular to the paper. Do not hold it at an angle.Make sure the pencil is resting snugly against your foot as you draw around it. You may actually find it helpful to have someone else trace your foot, but as you can see in this image, it can be done alone.
STEP 3:- Draw straight lines around the outline
Use your pencil to draw straight lines touching the outermost points at the top, bottom, and both sides of the outline.
STEP 4:- Measuring the Length
Use your ruler or measuring tape to measure the length from the bottom line to the top line that you drew in step three.Be sure to hold the measuring tape straight, and find the closest mark that you can (for inches, use the closest 16th mark) – don’t round up or down dramatically. Jot this number down.
STEP 5:- Measuring the Width
Many people will need a narrow or wide shoe. This step will help you to determine the width of your foot.Measure the width of your foot by using your measuring tape or ruler to measure from the line on one side of your tracing, to the line on the other side. Again, be certain to find the closest mark that you can (for inches, use the closest 16th mark). Jot this number down. Send us the length of your feet in cm/inches and width and we will be able to help you determine your most accurate shoe size.
