Slide & Swing Size Guide
The first rule is to get another person to help you! It is important that you let someone else trace your foot on a sheet of paper, since the slightest variation in position e.g. bending down will cause a weight change, which in turn will affect the measurements.
You need to stand upright on the floor, barefoot or wearing the socks or tights you will be wearing. Make sure your toes are perfectly stretched out and don’t move!
Next, measure from the heel to the top of your longest toe. This can be any of your toes. Done!
Every brand has their own size guide, so be sure to check it as sizes can vary considerably between them. Some brands have more than one size guide as the foot needs more space in heels for example.
Please consider that the measurements on the Slide & Swing sizing charts refer to the shoes, NOT your feet. The length has been measured inside the shoe, in order to give a realistic idea about the actual space available. The width, however, has been measured on the outside sole, because the leather is quite soft and will give after some use.
Example: If you are a woman and your feet are 24 cm long, your size in heels would be at least 38, not 37. If you are a man and your feet are 28 cm long, then your size would be at least 43, because 42 is of the same length as your feet, which means that your toes would touch the top of the shoes causing them to hurt after a short while.
