PK SIZING - FIND YOUR SIZE
FOR BEST RESULTS...
Our size charts are specific to our shoes, and may differ from your usual footwear so we always recommend you measure before ordering.
- Measure BOTH feet on a piece of paper. (we often have one longer foot)
- Mark a point with the pencil on the edge of the paper that will touch the wall - this is where you will place the centre of your heel.
- Stand with your heel against a wall (90 degrees with the floor) , and make sure the paper is also against the wall.
- Mark on the paper where the end of the longest toe or toes are. Make sure you keep your pencil upright so as not to add or subtract any mms.
- Measure between each of those points. (Once you've measured - Use the measurements from the longer foot)
- Look where your measurements fit within the "BEST FIT" recommendation column. IMPORTANT: You do not need to add on an extra cm to your measurements if looking in this column. We have already taken into account the space you need and the corresponding insole measurement. The only exception is if the foot is near the end of this "best fit", and you want more space for toe space, socks, or growing room, then we suggest looking at the next size up.
- Our BEST FIT recommendation column takes into account having between 7mm (tighter fit) - 12mm (ideal space) wiggle room in front of your toes.
- If your foot measurements are at the very end of the "BEST FIT" recommendation, then we would suggest the next size up if you want to have more space in front of your toes - It would pay to measure your feet again, or have someone else do that for you, just to double check you have the right size - IF IN DOUBT, PLEASE CHECK ALL MEASUREMENTS AGAINST THE RECOMMENDED BEST FIT, AND ALSO THE INSOLE LENGTH and measure more than once if in doubt.

PLEASE NOTE THAT 22F AND 23F are different to our new MIDI soles in 22M and 23M.
HOW TO MEASURE
Stand with feet on a piece of paper, and mark where the end of the longest toe/s are, and middle point of the back of the heel. Make sure the pencil is straight up and down and not adding any extra mms to your measurement.
Use a ruler to measure between those two points - often this line is a diagonal from mid heel to the longest toe. (Use your longest foot measurement - Look at the "BEST FIT" column to see where the foot fits best.
* If at the end of the "BEST FIT" measurements, and you like having at least 1.2cm space for your feet then the next size up might be a better choice - You can check this off against the INSOLE LENGTH to see if the next size up works for your foot.
For most comfortable fit, aim to have up to 0.7-1.2cm of extra space in the shoe - 1-1.2cm is the ideal extra space in front of your toes.
If socks will be worn in the shoes, pop on the socks and then measure in the same manner.
We include a width measurement across the ball of the shoe, this is a measurement of the FLATTEST part of the sole, so there is always more available space width-wise than stated. For example, Kate has 100mm wide feet in a size 39, and they fit well. The flattest part of the sole measures 90.5mm, but there is extra width above that part of the sole.
Our sole curves out and up giving your feet more room to spread.
We also have a natural rubber sole that is able to flex with a foot, which helps accomodate feet that have more width. The sole is 3mm of rubber, and the insole (which is fixed in the shoe) is another 3mm of foam and microsuede.
While the available length measurements are the same across all styles, the upper construction affects the fit and feel of the shoe.
(For example the chelsea boot style feels smaller/tighter as the boot construction is lower over the toe box, and the low lace sneaker style feels more spacious. The velcro pairs and low lace sneakers also allow for more adjustment for different volume feet)
