So why are shoe sizes different all around the world and why can't we guarantee the accuracy of the information in our Swedish to International shoe size comparison charts? The answer is not as simple as it seems. Not only do different countries have different units of measurement (i.e. centimetres, inches) but even within the same unit of measurement (e.g. centimetres) there are differences in the units of shoe-size increment (i.e. the 'Paris Point' system uses increments of two-thirds of a centimetre, while the 'Mondopoint' system uses increments of half a centimetre).

Compounding the problem is the different ways of measuring feet. Some systems measure the width of the foot, whilst others do not. Some countries have completely different measuring systems for men and women, whilst other countries use the same system for both genders. And even in some cases, there are different measuring systems depending on the type of shoe that's being measured (i.e. dress shoe, running shoe etc.). And of course when it comes to manufacturing and stocking shoes, most shoes are only produced in whole or half sizes (i.e. size 6, size 6.5 etc.). And just to compound it all, most people have a different size between their left foot and their right foot. Who'd be a shoe salesperson?

So, keep all that in mind when buying your next pair of shoes online and remember to check out the online shoe store's return policy so that you can buy your shoes online with confidence.
