A shoe size is a numerical indication of the fitting size of a shoe for a person. In some regions, it is even customary to use different shoe-size systems for different types of shoes (e.g., men’s, women’s, children’s, sport or safety shoes). Be detailed in looking for the shoe size. For example, if you are an adult Japanese man, your shoe size is 26 and you want to know your Mexican shoe size, look in the world shoe size chart in adult table at the row labeled “Japan Men”. Find the column with a “26”. Now look at the row for “Mexico” and look across until you are in the same column as the “Japan Men 26”. You should see a “6.5” as your Mexican shoe size.
American Women’s shoe sizes are the same as American Men’s shoe sizes plus 1½. Canadian shoe sizes are equivalent (identical) to American shoe sizes for both Adult and Children’s, Men and Women. Japanese shoes sizes are American Men’s shoes sizes plus 18. (Some companies say add 19.) Europe uses a system that came from the French called Paris Points (aka Parisien Prick). One Paris Point equals two-thirds of a centimeter. The system starts at zero centimeters and increases. There are no half sizes. American size 0 is the same as 15 Paris Points. British shoe sizes plus 1 are the same as American Men’s shoe sizes.
