How to find your shoe size
To measure your shoe size, take a piece of A4 paper and place the short edge against a flat wall. Now stand on the piece of paper with your heel on the edge and against the wall. Take all your weight on that foot and mark the edge where your longest toe ends. Once this is done, simply measure in centimeters the top of your longest toe to the end of your heel with a ruler. Now check the centimeters with the following Taekwondo shoe size chart to find your shoe size.
Just like purchasing normal walking shoes, you should take into consideration spacing for your socks if you wear them and any special shoe inserts that you may need.
A correctly fitted pair of martial art shoes should always feel a little tight to get on at first, particularly if they are leather, as it stretches. Once on the foot they should feel comfortable.
Make sure that there is at least an index finger width on either side of the shoe and your foot. You want a secure fit not a tight uncomfortable fit so it is important to ensure that they fit the widest part of your foot.
Another thing to consider is that often times one of your feet may be slightly bigger in size than the other. You should always select a size that fits the slightly bigger foot.
And finally, the shoe must not allow space for your foot to slip out during training. This will cause distractions when training. The shoe should have a comfortable and a snug fit.
