How To Know Your Boot Size Easily:
Here I am going to share how you can know your boot size by measuring your feet size in home with some common materials by some easy steps. This method is workable for everyone. Usually, US size is measured in inches and they are consistent, too. The steps you will need to follow are—
Place a paper on the floor that fits your whole foot on it. Now stick the corners of the paper with tape. If the paper doesn’t fit to your foot, you can attach two small papers with tape to make it bigger, but do it carefully and don’t tear the papers with any writing utensil.
Now you will need a pencil whether it is sharp or blunt. In fact, it will be easier to use a wide or blunt pencil tip, as it will work more smoothly and will not tear or poke the paper.
Put socks on your feet. It is better to wear the one you are planning to wear with your boots that you will purchase, because they will give a realistic and more relative shape of the sole. It will show how much space exactly it will take inside of the boot. Now sit down on a chair in front of the piece of paper and place your foot on the paper.
Now slightly bend knees inward placing the foot at the same place. This will give a more realistic shape of the space that is taken up by the foot. Also, it is recommended to wait and walk regularly for some days before buying boots, because inflamed foots are tend to swelling, so it will help your feet to give legitimate comfort space for your feet and toe.
Mark around the outer side of foot with a pen, marker, or pencil. Put the pen straight, do not bend or tilt it, otherwise it will trace under the foot and not around it. You may feel difficult to trace your toes as the socks act as a buffer and prevent you from getting an accurate measurement. To avoid this problem you can request someone to trace it for you.
Use your pen to mark your foot length on the paper from the big toe to the heel. Similarly, measure the widest part of your foot. Now write down both the measurements in inches. If it is a custom-ordered boot, follow the same process for your other foot as each foot size is naturally different.
Now apply the measurements to your desired size chart that is provided or from online. It can be a Laredo boots size chart. If you want to buy boot for your child, you can choose the kid’s boot size chart, also there is Justin Boot’s size chart, and the cowboy boot size chart as well.
There is another alternative way to measure your shoe size accurately. Some shoe stores place a mat to the floor with the smallest to biggest shoe soles in the fitting area. This can be very helpful if your foot fits among the standard sizes. But, if your foot is smaller or larger on the mat, you will need to trace your foot on the paper. read about Work Boots for Diesel Mechanics.
