Fitting Guide: Find your Birkenstock size & fit

We offer our original footbed in two widths: Regular and Narrow.  This is to accommodate for the differences in shape between individual's feet and to provide optimum support and comfort.

Please Note: This is a guide only, shoes manufactured to standard measurements can't accommodate all the nuances and particulars to individual feet and can't replace the one on one experience of being fit by a trained staff in store, however as a guide to find the closest fit it's a very useful tool. If further assistance in determining size is required please contact our customer service team or head in store for a fitting. Find your size by following the steps below: 

How to Measure

It's important to measure your foot accurately to find the right size shoe. To work out the size and width you will require, please follow these steps:

1. Measure the length of your foot by standing on a flat surface with your full weight on your foot, then measure the distance from the back of your heel to the tip of your longest toe.
2. Add 10mm to your foot length to allow your foot room to move. This will give you the footbed length you need to find your size.
3. Measure the width of your foot across the broadest point. Compare your foot width measurement to the footbed width in your size to see if you will need a narrow or regular width.

Example: Julie's foot measures 240mm long and 95mm wide. Julie adds 10mm to her foot's length to find she will fit comfortably into a Size 39 (250mm Footbed Length). At that size, the Regular Width footbed of 97mm will fit her foot properly.

Measuring Tips

Measuring Tips

We recommend using a pencil or a ballpoint pen.

A thick pen can distort the result.

It’s best to measure your feet in the evening as they may expand during the day.
