On most shoe manufacturers, the difference between widths is approximately 1/8 of an inch from each width.
The best way to measure your feet for a shoe size is to get the length and width measurement of your feet. The length is the measurement from the heel to the longest toe. The width is the measurement at the widest part of the foot, generally right behind the toes.
If you would like us to suggest a shoe size for you, please send feet measurements to firstname.lastname@example.org.
These shoes are designed with extra space and with removable insoles for even more room to insert medically prescribed foot orthotics or just provide more room inside the shoe. Generally, a double depth shoe provides an additional 1/2" depth than a traditional shoe.
Polyurethanes are found in a wide range of footwear types. Although best known for sports and trekking shoes and boots, they are also extensively used for business and fashion shoe soles, as well as high-quality safety shoes. Low-density to compact polyurethane systems are utilized for mid-soles and outer soles.
EVA (Technically named Ethylene Vinyl Acetate). EVA is one of the best shock absorption materials available today. This is why all the major top-line brand manufacturers use this material, due to the great combination of shock absorption with the light weight of the sole. Generally, an EVA outsole makes the shoe lighter in weight.
A rubber outsole means the bottom of a boot or shoe is made of rubber. Generally, a rubber outsole provides slip-resistance benefits when in contact with oil and other slippery surfaces. Please see individual shoe styles for slip-resistance specifications.
The heel counter is located in the back portion of a shoe and is typically a small plastic insert used to reinforce the heel cup and increase support.
The shoe heel stabilizer can be made of rubber, plastic or leather. The stabilizer is bonded to the upper (top material of shoe) and midsole (in between the bottom and top of shoe) on the outside of the shoe as a functional and style part.
A layer of material between the inner and outer soles of a shoe, for absorbing shock.
A shank is a supportive structure between the insole and outsole of a shoe. Shanks can be made of steel or fiberglass. The shank in the shoe gives the shoe stability and prolongs the life of the shoe.
A heel cushion is a pad in the heel of an insert/insole that helps absorb shock as you walk. A padded heel cushion can help with foot conditions like plantar fasciitis.
Rocker bottom shoe is a shoe which has a thicker-than-normal sole and a rounded heel. Such shoes ensure the wearer does not have flat footing along the proximal-distal axis of the foot. The rocker bottom helps with the gait cycle.
A medial heel stabilizer provides rear foot walking stability and minimizes slippage.
Copper socks have natural anti-fungal and anti-bacterial properties, as well as an ability to improve circulation, and these benefits begin as soon as they touch the feet.
You will want to look for a shoe that is sturdy with a cushioned heel.
Depending on the brand, you should order 1.5 to 2 sizes smaller than the women's shoe size that you wear. The width should be a full width size down. For example, if you wear a women's 10 XW, you would order a men's 8.5 or 9 Wide.
