How to Convert Your Women's Shoe Size to a Men's Shoe Size

There is an approximate 1.5-size difference between men's and women's sizing.

  • A men's size 7 is roughly equivalent to a women's size 8.5.
  • Widths remain the same during conversion: if you wear a women's D width, you will also wear a men's D width.

This table shows size conversions between women's and men's shoes. In most styles, the smallest men's size offered is 5.5: 

Women 7 7.5 8 8.5 9 9.5 10 10.5 11
Men 5.5 6 6.5 7 7.5 8 8.5 9 9.5

Women who wear a women's size 6.0 or smaller can wear many of our kid's styles.
