The dimensions are different

There are three main measurement systems in modern footwear industry: the system of the CIS rooms, the French and the English system insole inch system.

In the second, French, foot measurement method is a standard insole, and the unit of measurement between the size of the bar length of 2/3 cm. The very same insole includes allowances for the decoration of 10 mm in length. Perhaps this method is suitable for measuring the feet of the French, but quite incomprehensible to many other people.

Third, the English, the system also uses the insole, but it is still much more accurately and meticulously French. However, like all English. As a starting point the British took the newborn foot, the length of which is 4 inches or 10.16 cm (inch equals 2.54 cm). The length of each successive number is increased from the standard 1/3 inch from size zero to 13, and then again through the same value from one to 13. And in the second stage unit becomes the 13th number of the first stage. Yes, the English version is less confusion, but the first method is still simpler. There are 2 more American way of how to determine the exact size of the feet, but they are even more confusing.

practical work

That was the theory. Now, practical advice, how to correctly measure the size of the feet of an adult and a child.

How to determine the size of the feet?
To carry out this operation barefoot stand with both feet on a blank white sheet of paper and ask someone from the close circle of your feet pencil. For greater accuracy, a pencil should be tightly pressed against the foot and keep it slightly sloped (to the edge of the foot). Now measure the length of each "fingerprint." If one leg was bigger than the other, it is better to be a larger value. Round it up to the nearest 5 mm, that is ready to the desired number.

And to determine the volume of individual shoes have to do two more measurement. The first - is the distance from the outer edge of the foot to the inside, passing through at the rear of the highest point of its arch. This point is actually near the bend of the foot (lift).

Similarly reported with the measurement legs in children. The child must stand, not sit, as in the "standing" stop several flattened and increases in size. Also watch carefully to the baby in any case does not draw fingers. Otherwise measurements will be taken correctly, and shoes can be less than the desired size. And one more rule. Buying shoes for your child, remember that children grow very quickly. Therefore all measurements of children's feet is better to make just before buying and wearing tights or socks. The last rule applies to adults if purchased shoes supposed to wear during the cold season.
