Finding the Right Size of Oxford Shoe

To find the proper size for shoes it is important to measure the foot accurately to ensure the shoppers know their correct foot length and width. To measure at home, sit and place the foot on a sheet of paper. Trace the foot with a pencil then measure the length and width with a metric tape measure. Use a conversion chart to convert the measurement to shoe size. It is not unusual to find that one foot is longer or wider than the other. This is a normal variant. If one foot is larger, purchase the larger size and, if necessary, add an insole to the smaller size shoe to prevent foot slippage.
