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.

E EE / F / +1 EEE / G / +2 EEEE / H / +3
3 216mm 222mm 228mm 234mm
4 222mm 228mm 234mm 241mm
5 228mm 234mm 241mm 247mm
6 234mm 241mm 247mm 254mm
7 241mm 247mm 254mm 260mm
8 247mm 254mm 260mm 266mm
9 254mm 260mm 266mm 272mm
10 260mm 266mm 272mm 278mm

Larger measurements will come under the ultra-wide category and smaller measurements are covered under standard shoe sizes.
