Sizing your Flip Flops
Picking the perfect size flip flop can be a challenge. We have some suggestions to make sure you get the perfect fit. The first step to getting the correct size is knowing how long your foot is. Follow these steps to pic your size.
Measure your foot. If one one foot is longer than the other pick the longer foot. We recommend tracing your foot on a piece of a paper and taking the measurements from longest point to point. Now that you have your measurement, in inches preferably, it is time to pick your size. We recommend picking the size that will give you the closest to 1 inch additional length when added to the measurements of your foot. What we mean by that is that if your foot measures 11 inches long than ideally you would pick a size that is 12 inches long. The chart below will help explain this. It begins with Mens 13 and runs down though Womens size 6.
So lets go over that again and with some examples.
Lets say you usually wear a Men's size 10 shoe and you measure your foot. Your foot measures exactly 10 inches long. To achieve the perfect fit with having as close to 1 inch (+/-) of additional space in the foot bed the Men's size 9 would be the perfect fit. A Men's size 10 would give you too much additional space at 1+1/2 inches and the Men's 8 would be to little additional space with only a 1/2 inch of extra room.
Lets say you typically wear a Women's 8 and you measure you foot to be 9 +3/4 inches long. This is a tricky situation as your length foot, when adding 1 inch to the measurement will leave you wondering if you should size up to a Women's 9 or size down to a Women's 8. In this situation we typically recommend picking the larger size. However if you are someone who likes a very snug fitting flip flop with your toes and heel very close to the edge on either end than pick the smaller size. Either of the sizes in this situation will most likely be good fits but as a rule of thumb we suggest leaning toward the larger size.
What if I have a really wide foot ??
We understand that some people will have a very wide foot and that is not a problem. Our flip flops are designed with a very long toe thong. This moves the placement of the strap past what we call the Toe Box and moves the straps further up on the foot towards the ankle. This means the straps are not fitting around what is typically the widest part of the foot. If you have a very wide foot you will most likely find that you love the way our flip flops fit you and they will be very nice and snug with little flop.
What if I have a really narrow foot ?
The design of our flip flop is intended to fit people as snuggly as possible and with a lengthened toe thong we reduce much of the slop and flopping of traditional flip flops. In the case of a very narrow foot most people will be surprised at how well the flip flops fits in comparison to what they have experienced with other flip flops. If your feet are narrow and the flip flop is looser than you like one trick is to get the flip flop wet and let it dry without wearing it. This can help in tightening the straps.
