I am wondering how to tell what size shoes my family wears in European sizes, based on their American shoe sizes — or do I need to measure their feet?
Put away the ruler, and don’t run out and order one of those shoe size measuring… things. Although, yes, measuring is still the best bet for figuring out what size you (and the rest of your family) wears in other countries’ sizing schemes, here are two ways to find your size, here and abroad:
ConvertWorld.com: A handy interactive size conversion tool covering US, UK, European, Japanese, and other sizes
Zappos.com: Shoe conversion charts for men, women, youth, kids’ and infants.
With this information at your feet, you should have the information you need to purchase shoes from anywhere in the world — and have them fit.
Bear in mind that shoe sizes can, of course, vary by manufacturer. The conversion chart or tool should be able to get you in the ballpark — however, like any piece of stuff you wear that you buy online, either be prepared to accept a slightly off fit, or buy from someone with a good/easy exchange policy. (Also, your feet may swell a little throughout the day, so to get the best fit, measure your feet — and try on new shoes — in the afternoon.)
