fit considerations A good fit involves the length and width of the shoe. Getting this right will help ensure the comfort and performance of your footwear. A good fit allows you to easily wriggle your toes inside the footwear. Feet should feel firmly held inside the footwear and not slide back and forth easily.

length A good guide is with your shoes unlaced and toes pushed to the front; you should be able to get a finger to a finger and a half down the back of your heel.

width This is largely based on the individual and different widths will depend on the brand. It’s important to ensure the width suits your foot shape.

A Kathmandu team member can help you measure your foot size correctly, to ensure you get the best fit. Tiber ngxÂŽ Boots

Measuring Tips: • Make sure you measure both feet • Don’t assume that your shoe size remains the same as it has always been • The shape of your feet can change over time • Make sure you wear the type of sock you intend to wear with your new shoes when you measure your foot

*These sizes and measurements are a guide only. The fit will differ between brands.

US WOMEN MONDOPOINT

*THE MONDOPOINT SYSTEM: This is the same as measuring the foot (not the shoe) in millimetres (mm). To measure your foot using this system: Place your heel against a wall and measure from the back of the heel to the end of the longest toe.


Footwear size chart Kids’ Shoe Sizes

Measuring Tips: • Kids should have their feet measured every 3 months. • For a shoe to be correctly fitted, there should be a thumb width between the end of the shoe and the end of the longest toe. • The foot should not be able to slide forward in the shoe.
