So let’s break the sizing monster down, there are some size conversions that you may not be entirely familiar with and with top brands being readily available online, you will see the sizing call-out differing, here’s what you should know.
There are typically three types of size conversions (size descriptions) available in South Africa.
These are UK, US, and EU shoe sizes. It is, however, good to note that while size guides certainly help when shopping online, they are still a guideline as different manufacturers' range of shoes differs in length and breadth. Knowing the length and breadth of your feet will make using an online size guide that more effective ensuring you get exactly what you want.
It's worth your while working out what your size is in all three international size call outs so when you see either UK, US or EU shoe sizes indicated, you will know exactly what size to choose when next shopping online.
UK/SA Size Guide
BONUS, the UK's shoe sizing metrics are essentially referred to as South Africa’s standard sizing. Both shoe sizing systems use lower numbers for shoe sizes. This includes sizes 0 to 14 for children and 0 to 15 for adults. Always be aware that while using a size guide can be helpful, it’s good to remain aware that sizes may differ depending on the manufacturer.
The Double-Digit Euro Size Guide For SA
While the UK and South Africa use the same shoe sizing system, the Euro shoe sizing guide can be confusing as Euro sizes are double-digits and start from size 15 for babies to size 50 for adults. Unlike the UK sizes that are straightforward enough to understand, Euro shoe sizes will need a conversion table to make sense of the double-digit sized shoes before purchasing them.
US/SA Size Guide
Unlike the Euro size guide, US size guides follow a single-digit sizing system, much like the UK and SA size guides. However, US shoe sizes are typically 1 to 2 numbers higher than the UK and SA sizes, meaning that a South African or UK size 5 would have to be bought as a US size 6 or 7, depending on the fit.
