Understanding the Philippines Shoe Sizes

The Philippines is a country where there is a lot of influence from the Western world. From movies to fashion, there is a resemblance of Western cultures.

Similarly, the shoe size system in the Philippines follows the US size system. You can say that they are identical to the core with variations from different brands and manufacturers. Part of the reason could be because a majority of Filipinos are Christians.

The shoe size for men usually starts with size 7 in the Philippines. The largest size can go up to 12, which is the same in the US. The Philippines also consider half sizes in their shoe size. A popular athlete brand Asics in the Philippines has half sizes in each increment.

While other countries in Asia like India use UK, US, and EU sizes. The Philippines only restricted their shoe sizes in the US system. It is their original shoe size system due to simplicity and to avoid any complications in searching for the right shoe size.

Understanding the US Shoe Sizes

The US Shoe size system is one of the most common shoe size systems in the world with many countries outside of the US adopting this system. The US shoe size system was introduced in 1880 by Edwin Simpson. The Simpson’s system says that 1/3 inch is the whole size difference. On the other hand,  half sizes are equivalent to 1/6 inch. The US shoe sizing system measurement includes length, width, and instep.

The size 0 of the US is adopted from the English system which is equal to 3 11/12 inches. US shoe sizes are similar to those in Britain with one size difference. The size numbering of the US is bigger than the UK because the US size starts with 1 while the UK starts with 0. Let’s have a look at the US shoe size to the UK.

How US shoe size runs depends on which region we are talking about. Generally, it runs from size 6 to 13 in men. The US shoe size system also considers half sizes except in the 12th size. So the formula to get your US shoe size is 3 multiplied by the length of the last subtracted by 24.

How to Measure Your Foot Size in the Philippines?

  1. Place a long ruler on the floor with one size attached to your wall.
  2. Put one of your feet beside the ruler and gently press your feet against the wall.
  3. Measure the length of your foot by noting the point 0 which is your heel, to your longest toe.
  4. Place a new ruler horizontally underneath your foot.
  5. Measure the width of your foot in inches.

Importance of considering arch type and foot shape

The fitting of your shoes is heavily dependent on your arch type. It is important to wear shoes that are suitable for your foot’s arch type. With the right shoes for your arch type, you can avoid muscle strains and injuries. So when you measure the length of your foot, consider your arch type and foot shape as well.

Is the Philippine shoe size the same as Australia?

Australian shoe sizes or AU sizes are somewhat similar to US sizes. However, the similarities are not for both men’s and women’s footwear sizes. AU women’s sizes and US women’s sizes are the same. For men, the size of AU men goes one size down in relation to US sizes.

For instance, if you wear US men’s size 8 then your AU size will be 7. Since the Philippines and US shoe sizes are the same, you can see the relationship between Filipino and Australian shoes.

Importance of Accurate Sizing

For optimal comfort, footwear sizing accuracy is essential. A proper fit is ensured by choosing the appropriate shoe size, which helps to avoid discomfort and potential foot issues. Uncomfortable feet can result in blisters, calluses, and planter diseases.

Precise measurement is not only a matter of style, it also directly benefits an individual’s health. Sizing correctly is crucial for both short-term comfort and long-term health benefits.

Selecting shoes that fit properly encourages comfortable walking, preserves foot health, and increases overall satisfaction.


If you are not familiar with the Philippines shoe sizing system then there was nothing much to learn in the first place. They simply follow the US shoe sizes which start from 7 to 12 for men and 4 to 12 for Women. The numbering is identical and how they determine foot sizes is also the same.

However, it is always advisable to refer to the brand’s specific shoe size chart for better accuracy of foot sizing.
