How to Choose Work Boots that Fits Right

You can successfully get shoes that fit right only when you know your feet’ measurements. The width and length of your feet would ensure you pick matching pairs of work boots. You would need a sheet (or file folder), ruler or measuring tape, pencils, and your regular socks for work boots.

Here’s how to measure your feet.

  • Lay the sheet of paper on the floor and sit close to it
  • Enclose your feet in your socks, as they add some volumes to the feet

Note: There is a need to measure your feet with the socks since you would be wearing them with the boot. Such action would prevent you from buying tight work boots

  • Then, lay your foot on the paper and get the outline drawn on the sheet using your pencil
  • Measure a straight line from the biggest toe to the heel of the outline; this s the length
  • Further, measure the largest part of the foot across the outline; this is the width
  • You can now match these measurements across the sizing chart.
