3 Common pitfalls to avoid when converting shoe sizes from Philippines to Euro

1. Overlooking width considerations

European shoe sizes consider the width of the foot in addition to the length. Additional letters, such as “N” for narrow, “M” for medium or standard, and “W” for wide, are used to indicate width.

Ill-fitting and discomfort can result from not taking width into account. Considering both the length and width measurements is crucial when converting shoe sizes from the Philippines to European sizes.

2. Ignoring half sizes and their significance

Half sizes are allowed in the Philippine shoe sizing system, but they are frequently excluded in the European system. Because of this, rounding up or down may be required when converting sizes. Try on both the smaller and larger whole sizes of European shoes if you usually wear a half size in the Philippines.

3. Relying solely on online size charts without personal measurements

Online shoe size charts are useful, but they can be inaccurate at times. The proper fit depends on several individual factors, including toe shape and arch height, as foot sizes can vary.

By taking the time to precisely measure the length and width of your foot, you can convert shoe sizes on a more individualized and trustworthy basis.
