The table (below) will give you the required shoe size for Start-rite shoes.
If you are buying another brand (Clarks, Geox etc...) you first need to find the Start-rite size then see the 'Brand variation notes' for the brand you are buying to find the size you need in that brand.
1. Using the length measurement of the longest foot find the corresponding row in the table - note down the ‘size’ from the SIZE column.

2. Within the row (in step 1) using the width measurement of the widest foot, find matching column. Note down the the FIT letter from the column label.

left foot: length measured was 167mm, width 171mm
right foot: length measured was 166mm, width 172mm
Go into table using: length 167 (from the left foot) and width 172 (from the right foot)
Result: size 10 Jnr, width F
If you were buying a Start-rite shoe you'd need size: 10 Jnr F
If you were buying a Clarks shoe you would now use this (10 Jnr F) with the Clarks notes in our Brand Variations page.
