Remember the nursery rhyme: "Leslie's mom bought beautiful galoshes ..."? In our childhood with you, moms took care of how to properly determine the size of our legs, and that we are wearing these very feet. Yes, and with the purchase of the business was without alternative.
Go to the market or to the store and measure everything you like. But time goes on. Now it is not necessary to spend half a day, hanging around the boutiques in search of the right pair. There are also online stores, sit down at the computer, choose and order what your heart desires. Stops only the fear of "suitable for the size?". But on each site there is a clear table of sizes for each model. Here you just need to find out how to properly measure the exact size of your foot, and it's in the hat.
Dimensions are different
In the modern footwear industry, there are three main measurement systems: the CIS number system, the French insole system and the English inch system. In the first case, the foot size is denoted in millimeters and is measured from the most protruding part of the heel to the tip of the longest finger. The leg should be barefoot at the same time. So, as this is the easiest way to measure the exact size of the foot, it is also the most common.
In the second, French, method of measuring the leg, the insole is the standard, and the unit of measurement between dimensions is a stroke of 2/3 cm in length. The insole itself includes an allowance for a decorative finish of 10 mm in length. Perhaps this way of measuring the legs is convenient for the French, but it is very incomprehensible to many other people.
The third, English, system also uses insoles, but it is still much more accurate and pedantic than French. However, like everything English. For the starting point, the British took a newborn's foot, the length of which is 4 inches or 10.16 cm (inch is 2.54 cm). The length of each subsequent number increases from the standard by 1/3 of an inch from zero size to 13, and then again through the same value from one to 13. And in the second queue, the 13th number of the first queue becomes. Yes, there is less confusion in the English version, but the first method is still easier. There are also 2 American ways to determine the exact size of the foot, but they are even more confused.
Table of three systems
Note that the table has a conditional size relationship that does not require full compliance.

It was a theory. And now a practical recommendation, how you can correctly measure the size of the foot in an adult and a child.
And to determine the individual volume of shoes you need to make two more measurements. The first is the distance from the outer edge of the foot to the inner edge, passing along the rear through the highest point of its arch. This point is actually near the fold of the foot (rise).

Similarly come with the measurement of the legs in children. The child must stand, and not sit, because in the standing position the stop is somewhat flattened and increases in size. And also watch closely that the kid does not in any case press his fingers. Otherwise, the measurements will be incorrectly taken and the shoes may be smaller than the required size. And one more rule. When buying shoes for a child, remember that children grow very fast. Therefore, it is better to measure all the pediatric legs immediately before buying and, wearing pantyhose or socks. The last rule applies to adults in the event that the purchased shoes are supposed to be worn in the cold season.
Now, knowing how to properly calculate and determine the size of your foot, you can go online shopping. Good luck.
