Proper Sizing for Skate Boots

TO MEASURE LENGTH:

  1. Get an old fashioned wooden or metal ruler and put the short end against a stair tread.
  2. Sit on the stair above with your heel against the back of the stair tread and your foot on the ruler.
  3. Note the length of the longest part of your foot (for some of us, it’s the second toe), then STAND and see if the length changes. Go with the longer length.
  4. Do this for each foot and write it down.

TO MEASURE WIDTH:

  1. Using a sewing tape measure (flexible plastic or cloth), wrap the tape measure around the widest part of your foot. This is usually the ball of the foot on the inside, and the wide part under the pinky toe on the outside of the foot.
  2. The tape measure may be at an angle. That is ok. Do this while sitting and then stand up and put weight on the foot, as it may spread once weight is upon it.
  3. Write down this measurement per foot as well.

TO DETERMINE SIZE:

  1. Check these measurements against this chart to see what size in MEN’s boots you end up as.
  2. As a general rule- a woman goes down roughly 1 ½ to 2 sizes from her street shoes to snug fitting boots.
  3. Every boot is different, so please check the sizing recommendations for each type of boot to ensure you are getting the right size in the boot you choose.
  4. Keep in mind the best way to tell is to find someone with the boot you want in the size you think you are, and ask them to let you try them. There simply is no substitute for trying on stuff.

Some boots run large

The 495 boot and the blue streak run 1/2 size large. So if I measure at a men's 5, I would choose the 4 1/2.
