Guide: How To Measure Your Shoe Size

how-to-measure-shoe-size-morjas-

Look, we get it. We understand that it can be hard to pick the right size when buying shoes online. We've all been there. Luckily, there are some simple and very effective tools how to get the size right. After thousands of customer conversations, reviews, surveys and data analysis we have a solid understanding of how to best guide you to find just the right size. Follow us below and you will be a size-pro by the end of this article.

Let’s start with making one thing clear: your feet are not that very special. 9/10 customers that we speak to consider their feet to be very special, different, rare, hard-to-please, too wide, too narrow and so on. Listen: they’re not. It’s a very high chance that your feet are very similar to all the feet we see on an everyday basis. So relax, your feet are pretty normal. Either way, no matter if you have narrow, standard, wide or something in-between we got you covered.

Let’s get to it. These are our best recommendations on how to select the right size:

  1. Compare with the size you have in other brands
    We’ve gathered data from our customer base and compared the sizes of our shoes with other brands. Hence, you can check in the below matrix what you wear in other brands and then select the corresponding size in Morjas. This is very straightforward and an easy way on how to best and most accurately get your size right.
  2. Measure your feet
    Can’t compare to any of the brands we have in the matrix? Not to worry. Then you can measure your feet. In the figure below we illustrate how to measure your feet. When you have the measurement you can easily check the corresponding size in our size guide matrix below.

We do have a size guide for all different models but, when it comes to information regarding sizing: it can never be too much. Why? Because there are quite some things to consider. Maybe you’re used to buy all your shoes in one size and maybe they’ve all fit quite good. However, to get the perfect fit we recommend you to measure your feet instead of choosing what you’ve always been wearing. Just by comparing our collections, there is a difference between our different models and there is also a difference in how you want the shoe to fit your foot.

To make it easier – we will go through each step for you.

Our different fits

It's very easy: all our shoes are made on three types of lasts. Different model, different last – Easy!


Three different models, will in most cases mean three different sizes. One for each of them.

1. We have one last for our loafers. This means all loafers have the same fit and hence the same size.
2. We have one last for our lace-ups and boots. This means all lace-ups and boots have the same fit and hence the same size.
3. We have one last for our sneakers.

Example: If you wear size UK10 in The Oxford, we recommend selecting UK9.5 in our loafers.

Below we cover our recommended sizes for each model in the collection and our different recommendations on how to measure your size.

1. Compare with the size you have in other brands

Morjas VS. other brands: In this table you can check how the size in Morjas compares to other brands. In the column "pick the same size" we recommend selecting the same size as you wear in these brands. For example: If you wear Carmina, Church's, Crockett & Jones etc. we recommend selecting the same size in Morjas.

If you wear Alden, Allen Edmonds and so on we recommend going down half a size, for example: if you have size 10 in these brands we recommend selecting 9.5 in Morjas.

2. Measure your feet

If you prefer measuring your feet do like this:

Wearing socks, stand on a piece of paper with your feet against the wall. Make a mark at the front of your big toe. Now measure between the base of the paper to the marked line and select the size from our size chart for each model below.

The Espadrille

The Espadrille runs large. Select one full size down from what you normally wear in dressed shoes. If using a sport sneaker as a preference, please select two sizes down. The Espadrille should feel tight in the beginning as they will stretch and become comfortable after just a few wears.

And yes, we understand what you're thinking "Why don't you just make it true to size?". But it's not that easy. We want The Espadrille to be soft without any inner lining. Why? Because it looks better, it feels better and it breathes better. The flip side? The suede stretches quite easy why we recommend going down in size. Otherwise they will slip off your feet after the suede have stretched after a few wears.
