Soft Star Sizing Information

Even with the best intentions and measurements, it can still be challenging for us to find the correct size on your first order. People have different preferences for fit that no size chart can accommodate. If you are unsure about size, you might consider ordering pairs in two sizes and returning one pair after you see which fits better.

ADULT SHOES

For best results: Use your standard US Shoe size. We find this is the best place to start for adults and generally the most reliable method.

Secondary method: Trace your foot using the method in the video below.

CHILD SHOES

For best results: Trace your child's foot using the method in the video below.

Secondary method: Print out the paper guides at the bottom of this page. Be careful to verify that you have printed to scale by comparing the printed ruler to an actual ruler.


 

Note: The sizing charts on this page apply only to Soft Star Shoes

If you are on the border between two sizes then we recommend the larger size.

Wide/Narrow: Trouble deciding your width? Our best recommendation is to order a wide or narrow only if you have found you need those custom widths in other brands for your feet to be comfortable. If you have never found you needed wide or narrow shoes before then we suggest sticking with our regular width.

If you have any questions about selecting the correct fit, please take a look at this video showing how to find your size while explaining the methods available on this page:

 

TRACING FEET

A quick and easy method to check size is to stand full weight on a piece of paper. With a pencil straight up and down to the floor, mark your heel and your longest toe. Measure the distance to select the correct size on the chart above. If you have hard-to-fit feet, also measure the widest width and your instep and provide these measurements for us in the comment section. A couple of pointers:

Do

Don't

  • DO use a pen/pencil
  • DO hold the pen/pencil straight up and down alongside your foot.
  • DO measure the longest length between your toe and heel and the widest width of your foot.
  • DON'T use a marker or crayon or attempt to use ink or paint to make a "footprint." 
  • DON'T tilt your pen/pencil so that it moves under your heel where it touches the paper.
  • DON'T stand on a ruler and eyeball it.
  • DON'T expect this method to provide perfect results. It is simply a good approximation for the real thing.

IMPORTANT!   Make certain page scaling is set to "NONE" and NOT to "Fit to page"  (Un-click the fit-to-page option)

Once printed,  double check to verify the ruler on the page matches identically to your own ruler at home. If they are off by even the slightest amount then this guide will not work. You can always contact us and ask us to mail you the general kid sizing guide, too.
