- Now place a tape measure (without cutting into the skin) around the ball of the foot, at the level of the ball of the small toe and the ball of the big toe. This also allows you to determine the circumference of your ball of the foot.
- A little tip for measuring your shoe width: Have someone else measure your foot, this will allow you to stand upright and the measurement will be even more accurate.

What does shoe width mean? How big is shoe width F? How wide is shoe width G? What is a strong or very strong foot? The shoe width classification also depends on your shoe size. Do you have e.g. B. Shoe size 38 and you measured a shoe width of 22.2 cm, a normal width F is right for you.
If you measured 22.9 cm with the same shoe size, then round it up to 23. So you would need a shoe with the comfort width G. If you measured 23.5 cm with the same shoe size, I recommend the comfort width H. If the result of your measurement (for shoe size 38) was 23.9 cm, then round it to 24 cm on your next shopping tour.
The width K is exactly the right one for you if you z. B. measured 24.6 cm. Please refer to our size table for women’s and men’s shoes (shoe size table) or shoe size table for your personal, exactly correct shoe width, depending on your shoe size.
