There are different ways to quickly and effectively measure your foot size. Here are two easy methods:
Click on the button below to print our foot measurement device on a standard sheet of paper, to measure your feet.
As one foot is usually longer than the other, measure both feet and keep the biggest size in mind. For example, if your foot is located between sizes 38 or 39, round it up. Your size is then 39.
You can also use a simple sheet of paper to measure your shoe size:
Then convert your foot’s length according to this simple rule: your foot’s length is equal to two thirds of your foot’s size. For example, if your foot is 26 cm long, then apply this formula: 26 / 0.67 = 39. Your shoe size is 39, according to the French sizing system.
Once you know your size, here comes the best part: choosing the right pair of shoes. This step is very important, as you have to keep your foot shape in mind so that you can find the perfect fit.
This means that a man with wide feet should avoid thin-shaped derbies, or that a woman with thin feet should choose some lace-up boots to keep her ankles tight and secure.
A new pair of shoes should not feel too tight or too rigid when worn. Do not assume that your new shoes will loosen up after you wear them.
For most adults, the perfect pair of shoes (neither too small nor too large) should at least have a « gap » of 5 to 12 millimetres at the front of the shoes. It also depends wether you are used to wearing tight shoes or loose shoes.
Every brand does not use the same sizing system. It varies from the French one, to the US, the UK or the Italian system, as they all use conversions from one size to another. This means that size 41 from one brand could be equal to size 43 from another brand.
Some brands like Paul Green, Gabor or Timberland use half-size of some of their pairs, to make sure they fit effectively. Others like Church’s offers several widths for some of its sizes. Carefully look into the label of your shoes, on the box, or ask our customer service about the sizing system of the shoes, just to make sure that they will fit perfectly.
Be careful when choosing the height of your heels! Doctors do not recommend wearing high (more than 6 cm tall) or flat (less than 1 cm tall) heels on a daily basis. They slowly damage your feet, your knees and your back. Intermediate or small heels are better. The arch of your feet should be close to their natural shape.
However, if you’re a high heel addict, here are a few tips:

Black suede Geox sneakers
Lining and insole
Everybody know Geox' world-wide reputation. But do you know how "the shoes that breathe" were created?
It all started on a hot Summer day, back in the 1990s. Mario Moretti Polegato, creator and founder of the Geox company (that he is still running today), was strolling under Nevada's burning sun and had the brilliant idea to poke holes into his outsoles to ventilate his feet. The idea of a flexible, breathable outsole had just emerged.
Back to Italy, that very idea is developped in a small local company belonging to the Moretti Polegato family, before being patented. Geox shoes are then manufactured with perforated outsoles, equipped with a special membrane that wicks sweat away and allows air to freely move inside the shoes. "The shoes that breathe" concept was born and a wonderful success story that would revolutionize the shoe making industry was about to begin.
What about the name "Geox"? It actually comes from the greek word geo meaning "earth". Combined with the letter X, the symbol of new technologies, Geox gained a reputation of innovative and modern company.
Every season, Geox creates and develops many technologies (Amphibiox, Aerantis™, Modual, Nebula, Nexside™) which allow people from all ages to find the perfect Geox style in terms of comfort, trendiness and stylishness.
