Footwear Size & Fit


Want To Know How Your New 
Boots Or Shoes Will Fit?

Want to know how your shoes will fit? You’re in luck! Boot World has developed a custom sizing scale to help guide shoe selection and fit for every piece of footwear we sell.

The Boot World Sizing Scale includes two separate scores of 1-5, one for shoe length and one for shoe width, based on the size of an average shoe. A score of 1 is extremely small and a score of 5 is extremely large.

Please refer to the Size and Fit section on each product page for product-specific sizing details. Please note that all information provided here is general and is meant only as an informational guide. All manufacturers and brands have different sizing in many of their shoes.

How Should a Shoe Fit?

As work shoe and boot experts, we often get asked, “How should shoes fit?” You might think that you know how a shoe should fit, but we’ve got news for you: There’s more than meets the eye when it comes to properly fitting a work boot or work shoe.

That’s why we’ve put together a few tips that we’ve learned over the years to help you find the right fit!

Heel Fitting

step 2/5


The heel of the foot should fit comfortably, but not overly tight

Mid-Foot/Arch Fitting

step 3/5


The mid-foot/arch should fit snug in this part of the shoe for support and control.

Ball Fitting

step 4/5


The ball of the foot should rest in the widest part of the shoe.

Toes Fitting

step 5/5


The toes should be free, never touching the end or side of the toe box - whether this box is steel, fiber, or leather.

Women’s vs. Men’s Sizing

There is a one-size difference + two-width difference between women’s and men’s sizes. For example, a women’s 9B (medium) is equal to a men’s 8B (narrow).
