Here's 3 simple steps to ensure you're getting the best size for you:
1) Thumb width length from end of longest toe, to end of shoe.
2) Roughly two finger's width between lace eyelets on top of the shoe.
3) Forefoot is not bulging out over the edges of the shoe.
Once you lace the shoes up, you should feel comfortable and secure in the shoe, with space to wiggle your toes (as if you can play the piano with them!). You should have roughly a thumb width of space from the end of your longest toe, to the end of the shoe. There should be no major bulging along the sides of the shoe. The laces should be as loose as you can snugly tie them. You should not feel any pain, or uncomfortable spots in the shoe. A little bit of heel slip when you walk or run is okay, and encouraged, as a sign of proper foot function. Within a week or two, the shoe should start to flex appropriately with your foot and the heel slipping should subside. If the slipping does not subside, try lacing the shoe with all the available eyelets or visit us in store to get fitted by one of our expert shoe fitters.
