International Shoe Size Conversion Charts

Adult, Girl's and Boy's Shoe Sizes

Conversion tables for American, Australian, British, Canadian, European, Japanese, Korean, Mexican, Russian, Ukrainian, New Zealand, Inches, Centimeters, Mondopoint shoe sizes

If your little piggies are going to market, these shoe size conversion tables can help. You can use them to convert from the shoe size used in one country or region to the shoesize used in another country or region. However, store and manufacturer practice varies widely. Having studied many published shoe size tables on the net, We would not trust any of them. The best practice We can recommend, if the company allows this, is to place orders in terms of inches, millimeters, or centimeters. You can at least measure your foot and measure the shoe and determine if you received what you ordered. Otherwise, you might encounter a compounded error of the manufacturer having a variation and the store conversion table having a variation which makes the shoe significantly different in size. We also note that tables and companies cite rules which only work for men, or women but not both. But often the tables don't indicate gender or are used for both.

The following tables demonstrate another aspect of globalizing products- shoe sizes are not measured in the same units around the world. e-Business applications need to provide users with appropriate units and be clear about which units are being referenced.

We are not responsible for any problems caused by reliance on this table. It's my best guess as to size conversions based on data found elsewhere on the web. We suggest you talk to the vendor or merchant about size conversions before ordering. 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. In reviewing various tables on the web, We noted many tables with gross mistakes (easily detected by seeing values out of order). Compare the surrounding values in tables you find on-line and determine if they make logical sense, before ordering.

Using the Shoesize Convertors

To use these Shoesize convertors, first choose the adult, boys or girls convertor. Then 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 Mexican 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 "Mexico" and look across until you are in the same column as the "Japan Men 26". You should see a "6.5" as your Mexican shoe size.

Please also see the International ShoeSize Chart Notes below and the section on Other Shoe Size Web Sites.


On most browsers, you can use the mouse to highlight a country's row in the converter for easier reading and conversion.

You can make the tables larger or smaller by changing the text size setting of your browser. In Microsoft Internet Explorer, choose the menu items: View, Text Size

Right-handed, Left-Footed

For most people, the larger foot is the opposite from the hand they write with. Try on shoes starting with your larger foot.

"Size Matters Not!" Sure... If you are Yoda. Otherwise, you need to use a conversion table.

Size matters not. Look at me, judge me by my size do you, hmm? And well you should not, for my ally is the Force and a powerful ally it is.

International ShoeSize Chart Notes

  • The Mondopoint system is the same as measuring the foot (not the shoe) in Millimeters (or Millimetres, mm.). However, some companies treat Mondopoint as Centimeters (Centimetres, cm.). So a shoe may be labeled either 240 (mm) or 24 (cm) if it is designed for a foot that is 240 millimeters long (including some wiggle room for socks). You may see mondopoint sizes with two numbers separated by a slash, e.g. 240/95. The second number is the width of the foot in millimeters.
  • American Women's shoe sizes are the same as American Men's shoe sizes plus 1½.
  • Canadian shoe sizes are equivalent (identical) to American shoe sizes for both Adult and Children's, Men and Women.
  • Mexican shoe sizes plus 1½ are the same as American Men's shoe sizes.
  • British shoe sizes plus 1 are the same as American Men's shoe sizes. However, We see many tables using a formula of British size plus 1½. Check with the manufacturer.
  • We saw one table on the web indicating British womens running shoe sizes were 1.5 plus mens size. We think this is incorrect and mistakenly applied the United States sizing rule to the U.K.
  • Japanese shoes sizes are American Men's shoes sizes plus 18. (Some companies say add 19.)
  • Europe uses a system that came from the French called Paris Points (aka Parisien Prick). One Paris Point equals two-thirds of a centimeter. The system starts at zero centimeters and increases. There are no half sizes. American size 0 is the same as 15 Paris Points.
  • 1 Centimeter (Centimetre) is 10 Millimeters (Millimetres).
  • 1 Inch is 2.54 Centimeters (Centimetres).
  • Length in Inches = 71/3 + (US Men's shoe size)*1/3
  • Paris Points = 311/3 + (UK shoe size)*4/3.
  • A Chinese 7 is a UK 4. That's all We know at the moment about sizes of shoes in China.
  • Australia and New Zealand use the same shoe sizes as the United Kingdom for boys, men and girls. However, We have seen women's shoe charts where Australia is 1 or 2 sizes bigger than U.K... We added an entry with one size bigger.
  • Korea measures shoe sizes in millimeters (mm.).
  • We are told Turkey uses European shoe sizes.
  • There are two scales used in the U.S. The standard (or "FIA") scale and the common scales. The "common" scale is more widely used. The scales are about ½ size different.
  • Although different kinds of shoes prefer different measurement systems, We believe the charts work for all kinds of shoes. (With the caveat of the variations mentioned above.) We have been looking into army, military, ski, hiking, climbing boots, ladies pumps, high-heeled, spike and dress shoes, as well as sneakers, designer shoes, gentlemen's shoes, causal, penny loafers, sandals, and other styles. We have not been researching children's shoes in much detail. The sizes above are also good for soccer, golf, running and other sports shoes. We have not tried bowling shoes or blue suede sneakers. We intend to get more detail on Nike, Reebok, and Adidas due to the strong interest in running shoes for people coming to this page.
  • If you have information or can point me at information about additional measurement systems of systems used by different countries We would be grateful. (We are interested in Latin America and Eastern Europe.)
  • Russian and Ukraine shoe sizes taken from Global7Network.com NOTE We are told these values are incorrect. Russia, Ukraine and other countries of the former USSR use European shoe sizes. There is no difference for men, women, girls and boys.
    In the 1980s a system using shoe sizes measured in centimeters was introduced. The change was not widely accepted. You can occasionally find shoes measured in centimeters, but most are marked with European system.
