ALTAI™ Pro Tip: Finding the Perfect Fit for Your Feet

Apr 17, 2020

It’s no secret that the world is getting more and more advanced and technology is constantly changing the way we live our lives. E-commerce has revolutionized the way we shop; whether you need a dozen eggs or a new car, it can be purchased and delivered to your home at the push of a button. While these types of futuristic changes can make our lives easier, they can also come with drawbacks. Shopping online for shoes and clothes can be particularly difficult; purchasing these goods without being able to try them on first can be daunting. Sure, most companies have return and exchange programs, but that can take extra time and effort to get the perfect fit. That’s why we are here to tell you how you can find the perfect boot size, without having to try them on.

You may already know the shoe size you typically wear. However, different brands can vary by size. For example, your tennis shoes could be a size 10, and your work boots a size 11, but they both fit your feet perfectly. Now, let’s say you’ve been researching the Internet for the perfect new pair of shoes, and you finally find the pair that has the style, type, and reviews that match your needs. But you don’t know what size will be best for you. Here’s how to find the perfect size:

  • You will need paper, something to measure with, and a writing utensil.
  • Place your paper on hard, flat flooring (no carpeting our tile grouting). Place your foot flat on the paper and trace around it with your writing utensil, keeping as close to the sides of your feet as possible to maintain accuracy. You will also want to wear socks to get accurate measurements for the footwear you want.
  • Use your ruler/straight edge to draw parallel, vertical lines at the widest parts of the sides of your footprint. Then, draw horizontal lines parallel, horizontal lines at the top and bottom of the footprint, and connect the lines to make a complete rectangle around your outline.
  • Use your ruler or straight edge again to draw lines connecting the widest and longest parts of your foot outline.
  • Measure your foot’s length and width and compare it to a shoe size chart to find your size. Width will typically be represented by a letter: AA, B, or C for women’s sizes, and C, D, or E for men’s sizes. Certain shoe manufacturers will simply use N, M, or W, standing for narrow, medium, and wide.

Here at ALTAI™, we do offer a return and exchange program, as well as a one-year warranty guarantee. So even if a sizing issue does occur, we got you covered! So measure up and compare your measurements to the ALTAI™ boot size chart below!
