US shoe size

How to measure shoe size

Proper measurement of the feet (video) is the key to select the right pair of shoes.

  • You need a few tools for this work, a pencil, a piece of paper and a measuring tape.
  • Now place the piece of paper on a flat surface and then stand on that keeping one of your feet.
  • Then take the pencil and draw two short marks on the back of the heel and at the largest toe point.
  • At last, measure the distance between these two marks by the measuring tape and choose the right size of shoes.

Concluding words

I think, from the size charts I provided above you have no more questions remaining regarding the difference between Mexican and US shoe sizes.
