How do the measurements work?

You may have noticed alongside the standard measurements which determine the length and general size of the item, a measurement in the form of a number of “e”. These measurements are usually either “eee” or “eeee”, but what do these mean? 

Both of these are a standard measurement of width, meaning that with each length size the width measurement also increases. The direct use of the amount of e’s determines how wide the item is, with more meaning larger. These measurements are always taken from the circumference of the widest part of the foot. 

You may not be familiar with the E measurement scheme in which case here are some conversions which may make more sense. 

EEE / F / +1EEE / G / +2EEEE / H / +3
3216mm222mm228mm234mm
4222mm228mm234mm241mm
5228mm234mm241mm247mm

7241mm247mm254mm260mm
8247mm254mm260mm266mm
9254mm260mm266mm272mm
10260mm266mm272mm278mm
