How to measure your feet for a perfect Columbia Shoe size

We always recommend measuring both feet, so you can convert shoe sizes between the US, UK, and European size systems: Here’s a simple how-to post about it.

Probably you don’t feel like reading or quickly want your Columbia Shoe size.
To make it easy, we summed up our tips to measure your feet:

Time needed: 3 minutes.

  1. Measure your or your kid’s feet in the afternoon.

    Feet tend to swell during the day, so it’s best to take feet measurements in the afternoon

  2. Stand When Measuring, but with smaller children this is not needed

    Due to the pressure of the body, your feet take their real size. For wheelchair users, it’s not needed to stand up to take shoe size measurement

  3. Wear socks

    Most shoes are worn with socks, so it’s advisable to wear socks while measuring your feet. Especially Hiking shoes and boots require socks, don’t forget to wear them

  4. Be precise

  5. Measure both feet

    People’s left and right feet are never 100% equal in size. the final shoe size is determined by the measurement of your biggest foot.

  6. Stand on a piece of paper

    Again, for wheelchair users this step can be skipped

  7. Start drawing

    Put your pen or pencil straight onto the paper you’re drawing on.

  8. Measure the length of your feet

    use a simple ruler to measure the length from toe to heel.

  9. Find your width fitting by drawing or with measuring tape
    (for infants, toddlers and little kids shoes, this step is optional)

  10. Determine your size in the conversion charts

Do Columbia shoes run wide or narrow?

Columbia offers shoes in different widths..

Most trail running shoes from Columbia are made with a snug, form-fitting and sometimes even constricting fit. So, people with wider foot dimensions should be cautious.

Are Columbia shoes true to size?

Columbia sandals, shoes and boots run mainly true to size.
As the shoes are for hiking, outdoor, pleasure, or working activities it’s best to size up 1/2 size, especially if you’re between sizes, to accommodate their sizing, plus socks, insoles (as applicable), and feet swelling that may occur while hiking.
