We are not responsible for the accuracy of this table. Note that manufacturers vary on sizing as well. Differences from the values on this page by either plus or minus a size or half-size are not uncommon. Compare the surrounding values in tables you find online and determine if they make logical sense, before ordering.

 

Using the Shoe Size Converters

To use these Shoe Size converters, first find the row that represents the region of the world which you want to convert the size from. Let's call this the "FROM" row. Look across the "FROM" row to the size closest in value to the one you want to convert from. Now, in the same converter table, find the row with the sizes of the region that you want to convert to. Let's call this the "TO" row. Finally, by looking straight up and down in the column, that is the same column that has the size you identified in the "FROM" row, find the same column in the "TO" row. The size in this column in the "TO" row is the converted size.

For example, if you are an adult Japanese man, and know your size to be 26, and want to know your U.S. shoe size, then you would look in the adult table at the row labeled "Japan Men". Find the column with a "26". Now look at the row for "U.S & Canada" and look across until you are in the same column as the "Japan Men 26". You should see a "8" as your U.S. shoe size.
