Sizing & Custom Fit
As our shoes are handmade and all parts are hand-cut, we are able to customize the size and create a pair of shoes that will fit comfortably. We can also accommodate orders for different length or width between feet or change the shape of the toe-box.
CUSTOM FIT GUIDE
To customize the size of your pair, it’s best to specify your size in two ways. If you are interested in a customized in terms of size and/or fit DL pair of shoes, pick the "CUSTOM SIZE" option or your usual size from the drop down menu and contact us for the consultation. Please, keep in mind that your shoes might look wider or narrower depending on your own feet's length-width ratio.
1. Length – Width measurements
To measure the length and width of your feet, all you have to do is to step on a piece of paper and draw the outline of your foot with a pen or pencil, making sure to hold it as vertical as possible to the ground, as tilting it either way might not give the correct results. Then measure the widest and longest points of the traced outlines, as the images below show.
Alternatively, after you have your outlines drawn, you can send us a scanned image of the paper, so we could get various measurements and a better idea of your feet shape to create a personalized shape. If a scanner is available, it would be helpful for us to have the scanned image as we're not able to be based on photographs of the drawn outlines as they are not true to size and usually show distorted length/width ratio.
2. Usual US, EU or UK size
We know sizes vary widely between shoe brands and we do not rely on the standard sizes to craft your pair but this helps us to cross-check with the measurements or outlines you’ll provide. Let us know of the shoe size you mostly find comfortable in either EU, US, UK or JP/CN systems.
We hope this guide to measuring your feet helps you out and brings the confidence needed when buying handmade and custom shoes online!
Please, feel free to contact us if you require further customization due to bunions, high or low volume feet, narrow/wide heels and ball, differences between feet or other special features. We are constantly in the process of understanding the variety of issues and ways to alter the shoes accordingly as well as to why some of these occur in the first place by wearing conventional shoes. For us to adjust the toe-box shape of your shoes, please provide us with the scanned traced outlines of your feet. In case you are interested in a toe-box that will allow your toes to spread further, please draw the outlines with your toes spread. Keep in mind that this will alter the final toe-box look of the shoes.
We are able to craft shoes for feet that measure from 21.5 cm in length to 32 cm. This roughly corresponds to US3.5 /UK 2/ EU34 and up to US15 /UK 13.5 /EU49.
Most of our shoe designs can now be crafted in smaller sizes from 26 EU to 33 EU. We are on the way to widening the range of sizes we can craft by expanding our series of shoe-trees, patterns and tools.
