The British shoe size measurement is the oldest shoe sizing system in the world introduced by King Edward II in 1324 as the standard English unit of shoe measure.

Unlike the Paris point-based system, widely used as the standard measure in European countries which have a uniform measure for kids and adults, the English linear measure distinguishes between children’s and adult’s sizes. It also has specific men and women’s sizes.

For the adult women size, the tag is from 2 to 9.5 or 8.1875 inches to 10.875 inches, offering half-sizes in between. For men, the measurement is from 5.5 to 15.5, equivalent to 9.2 inches to 12.5 inches.

The UK shoe sizing measurement for youth (age 6-10 years old) is from 11.5 to 6 or 7.25 inches to 9.75 inches, while for the children’s shoe size, the scale begins with the smallest size is 4.5 until 11. This could be converted to 5 inches to 7.125 inches. A child’s size 0 is 10.16 cm or 4 inches.

Note that a child’s size 13.5 already corresponds to an adult’s size 1.

The difference in size measures 8.46 mm and corresponds to one-third of an inch (an inch is 2.54 cm). In order to achieve a better shoe fit, half-sizes (with a 4.23 mm difference between each consecutive half-size) were introduced in 1880.

Typically, the UK shoe sizing only considers length and not width therefore sizing does vary slightly per manufacturer as each company uses their own set of lasts when creating the shoes.

Use the conversions below as a guide to estimate your different shoe sizes.
