How to measure for a perfect shoe fit?
In Tajna Club, all shoes are made to order. We use this chance to adjust each shoe according to our customer’s individual foot proportions.
For a perfect fit, please do the measurements, according to the explanations below, and indicate them in the note section of your order at check out.
- Gather paper, a pencil, and a ruler or a tape measure.
- Sit down on a chair and place the paper on the floor.
- Place one foot on the paper and allow it to rest naturally.
- Holding the pencil perfectly vertically and perpendicular to the paper, mark the longest toe (generally the big toe) and the back of the heel, by tracing a line as closely as possible. It is important not to angle the pencil in or out.
- Using the ruler, measure the distance between the two lines that you traced, meaning the distance from the toe to the heel.
Instep Perimeter Length:
- Measure the widest part of your foot as shown in the picture, by wrapping a measuring tape around it. If there’s a bone deformity on the foot, wrap the tape around that area.
- It is better to use a measuring tape, to measure the instep perimeter. If you don't have one, you can use a rope to warp around your foot once and then measure the length of the rope with a ruler.
Ankle Perimeter Length:
- If you are ordering boots, taking the measure of your ankle perimeter, as indicated in the picture above as number 5, will be useful for a better fit.
- Wrap measuring tape around your ankle and take the measure.
Calf Perimeter Length:
- If you are ordering long boots, measurement of your calf as indicated with number 6 in the picture above, is needed.
- Wrap measuring tape around the largest part of your leg, between your knee and your ankle and take the measure. Don’t wrap the measuring tape too tight.
Thigh Perimeter Length:
- If you’re ordering an over-the-knee boot, then you should measure the perimeter of the part of your leg, that you would like the boot to finish. It is indicated with number 9 and 10 on the picture. You may decide on any area over your knee.
- Wrap measuring tape around your thigh (where you want the boot to finish) and take the measure. Don’t wrap the measuring tape too tight.
Especially for over-the-knee / thigh-high boots, take the measure from your thigh (where you want the boot to finish), to your heel.
