Mexican Shoe Size Conversion & Charts for Men, Women & Kids

Mexican shoe sizes differ distinctly from that of the US, the UK, or pretty much any other shoe size scale in the world. When buying shoes from international shops or online retailers, trying to figure out the correct conversion of Mexican shoe sizes to those of the US can pose a bit of a challenge.

Mexican shoe sizes run smaller than the sizing standard adopted by other Western countries, as Mexicans themselves tend to be somewhat smaller in physical stature than Americans, although, like most nationalities in modern times, this is trending upward. Still, don’t be surprised if it’s difficult to find the biggest sizes in Mexican versions.

Mexican Kids Shoe Size Chart

Once again, as with men’s and women’s shoe sizes in Mexico, kids’ shoe sizes also follow foot length in centimeters. Similarly, Mexican kids’ shoe sizes diverge from the usual shoe sizing standards used in the US, UK or Europe, and for the same reason: Mexican children are relatively smaller than kids in other western countries. Mexican kids’ shoe sizes start with a size 9, which is a US size 1, measuring 3 ⅝ inches. Sizes continue on through 10, 11, 12 and so on up to size 24, which in the US is a size 6Y or 9 ¾ inches. Each size in kids’ Mexican shoes have a ⅜” or 0.375-inch differential between sizes.
