European Shoe Size Conversion Men

In general, European shoe sizes do not separate sizes for children and adults. Instead, looking at the sizes, there is one end for smaller shoe sizes that kids often use, while on the other end are larger shoe sizes worn by an adult male.

Often times, European shoe sizes also have the same length for men and women or unisex pretty much compared to the US standard which clearly separates men, women and children’s shoe sizes. In the European shoe sizing, standard, the color, and details often identify whether the footwear is for male or female.

EU mens sizes start with a size 32 which translates to 7 ⅔ inches and a size 0.5 in the US. Europeans sizing can extend up to a size 50, which measures 12 ⅔ inches. The easiest way to convert a US men’s shoe size to EU size is to add 33 to your existing US size. If you are wearing a US mens size 9, for example, then in EU terms, your size will be 42 in Euro.
