It may come to a surprise but you may be wearing the wrong size of shoes. Too big or too small, the wrong shoe size may result in potential injury. Follow these simple steps to find your right shoe size:
- Take a paper and place it on the floor. Make sure the floor is a flat and hard surface.
- Place your foot on the paper and trace around your foot with a pencil. (You may wear socks if you think you will be using socks when wearing the shoes).
- Draw a straight line length wise from the sole to the tip of your toe (top to bottom) & draw a straight line width wise on the widest part of your feet (side to side).
- Measure the lines.
- Subtract 3/16th of an inch to both the measurements to accommodate the space between the pencil and your actual foot.
- Determine your size J :
