Men's Shoe Size Tips

Sizing tips for men's shoes.

Xero Shoes tend to run wider than conventional shoes. If you normally wear a larger length shoe to get a wider fit, you'll likely not have to do so when purchasing Xero Shoes. Note that natural materials (like leather or canvas) may stretch during initial wear. If you think of your foot as particularly narrow, you can consider ordering a women’s style. Many male customers find a great fit in the women’s styles. Just be sure to adjust the size by 1.5 (for example a men’s 7 is the same as a women’s 8.5). If you are still unsure of which size to order, we recommend ordering two sizes to try and keep the size you prefer.

Women's Shoe Size Tips

Sizing tips for women's shoes.

Be aware that natural materials (like leather or canvas) may stretch during initial wear. If you think of your foot as particularly wide, you can consider ordering a men’s style. Many female customers find a great fit in men’s styles. Just be sure to adjust the size by 1.5 (for example a men’s 7 is the same as a women’s 8.5). If you are still unsure of which size to order, we recommend ordering two sizes to try and keep the size you prefer.

 

Kid’s Shoes Size Tips

All of Xero Shoe's children’s shoes are wider than conventional children’s shoes. If you normally wear a larger size to get a wider fit in conventional shoes, you may not have to do that with Xero Shoes.
Natural materials (like leather or canvas) may stretch during initial wear.
If you think of your foot is a bit longer than the kids size 4, you can consider ordering the narrower but longer women’s style. Just be sure to adjust the size by 1.5 (for example a kid’s size 4 is the same as a women’s 5.5. A half-size larger than the kid’s size 4 would be the women’s size 6).
People like different types of fit — some like their toes near the end, others like 1/4″-1/2″ of extra space.
