In general, European shoe sizes either for men or women do not separate sizes for children and adults. Smaller shoe sizes at one end of the size spectrum are sizes that fit kids, while on the other end are sizes that could be worn by adults.

European shoe sizes are also measured in centimetres rather than inches as with US sizing and shoe sizes are also unisex, meaning the length for men and women could be the same, unlike in the US sizing which clearly differentiates sizes for men, women, and children. With this, a woman who wears a shoe size 38 would probably comfortable just the same in a men’s shoe as a women’s shoe in terms of how the shoe will fit. Style, color, and design often identify whether footwear is suitable for women or men.
