Measure Guide for Custom Footwear


Measuring your feet

Measuring Tips: keep tape firm but not to tight. If you have a specific problem (e.g. a bunion) it is helpful to mark its location on your foot chart. Feet are a?ected by a wide range of problems, some straightforward, some complex. McKinlays have over 100 years experience making comfortable shoes that ?t. However, some foot conditions require specialist medical assessment. We will advise you if we feel you should seek such advice before having your own lasts ?tted or shoes made.

  1. Measuring around both your feet
    Around Place both your feet on two pieces of paper on a smooth, ?rm ?oor. Keeping upright, with weight balanced, have someone draw right around both feet. Pencil or pen should be at a very slight angle.

  2. Measuring Joint Using
    Using a household measure tape, measure joint by passing tape around your foot, behind the little toe and over the joint of the big toe. i.e. you are measuring the widest part of each foot.

  3. Measuring Your Instep
    Measure your Instep by passing the tape around the centre of each instep. i.e. you are measuring the Highest part of your foot.
