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.

 

Foot Length:

Foot Length

  1. Gather paper, a pencil, and a ruler or a  tape measure.
  2. Sit down on a chair and place the paper on the floor.
  3. Place one foot on the paper and allow it to rest naturally.
  4. 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.
  5. 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:

 Taking the Instep Length

  1. 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. 
  2. 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.

 

Measuring foot and leg for shoes

Ankle Perimeter Length:

  1. 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.
  2. Wrap measuring tape around your ankle and take the measure.

Calf Perimeter Length:

  1. If you are ordering long boots, measurement of your calf as indicated with number 6 in the picture above, is needed.
  2. 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:

  1. 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.
  2. 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.

Boot Length:

Especially for over-the-knee / thigh-high boots, take the measure from your thigh (where you want the boot to finish), to your heel.
