    How to Measure Your Feet and Get the Right Shoes

    Step 1

    Wear socks. Place a piece of paper on the floor and stand on it. Make sure both feet are set on it.

    Step 2

    Get a pen and trace your right foot’s outline on the paper. It is imperative that you hold the pencil perpendicular to the paper. This will ensure accurate tracing.

    Step 3

    Make a straight line at the foot’s heel, the foot’s farthest edges and big toe.

    Step 4

    Get the tape measure and gauge the distance from the toe line to the heel. Take the measurement in inches to the closest 16th of an inch.

    Step 5

    To get the foot width, measure from each side’s line until you get to the other. It is imperative that you measure to the nearest 16th of an inch.
