Table of translation of US shoe sizes in Russian

When ordering new things online on American sites or Aliexpress, many are faced with determining the size for their legs. Instead of the accustomed double-digit numbering, you have to deal with incomprehensible fractional numbers. How not to get confused and adapt the American shoe size to Russian accurately - this is not so difficult to figure out.

US shoe size

In the world there are several systems for labeling products of the shoe industry. American shoe sizes (USA) have nothing to do with Russian and European, so it’s just impossible to convert the size of US shoes to the one accepted in Russia. For this, special tables are used, according to which it is very easy to find the correspondence of the size range. The size table of American shoes is numbered from 1 to 14, with each figure having a half designation. A similar gradation applies to English shoes, but its markings are different.

In addition to the length of the foot, an important role in the choice is played by the rise and width of the leg. The dimensional grid of US shoes in this regard looks more advantageous in comparison with the domestic one. Everyone can choose their boots or shoes, starting from the values ​​of their own fullness of the foot. To do this, the Americans add alphanumeric characters to numerical values:

  • A and AA correspond to a narrow foot;
  • B is suitable for those with a standard width foot;
  • C and D indicate that the product is intended for owners of chubby legs.

It is worth knowing that many American shoe manufacturers can deviate from the accepted parameters to determine the size range. This, for example, refers to the well-known brand for the production of sneakers Nike, which offers its customers to focus on their own parameters. There are enough such examples, so many portals have special look-up tables (a vivid example of Aliexpress) that help you easily determine the required size, knowing the parameters of your own foot.

Children's shoe size

Buying children's shoes, as well as clothing over the Internet, is a profitable decision, because it allows you to save money. Since the parcel from abroad can take a long time (also applies to Aliexpress), you should choose shoes with a margin. As for the translation of the size of US children's shoes into Russian, it is worth considering some features. The entire size range for children in America is divided into three main segments:

  • from birth to a year;
  • from one and a half to 6 years;
  • for teens.

Since the children's foot is growing at an accelerated pace, for proper determination it is necessary to measure it every six months, if the child is more than 7 years old, quarterly for children from 3 to 6 years and once every two months the smallest. This will help to choose the shoe so that it does not cause discomfort to the child. For better orientation, you can use the following data:

When buying a new thing, it is recommended to try it on, and this should be done with the whole couple, because the legs can differ from each other. Fortunately, modern online stores allow you to try on before making a purchase, which helps a woman make the right choice.

How to translate US shoe size into Russian

It is not always possible to use the above tables. To do this, you can use special formulas that help determine the value, having a calculator at hand. Before computing, you need to know the length of your foot in centimeters and convert them to inches, dividing the length of the foot by 2.54. You can immediately use the measuring tape in inches - it will be much easier.

In order to correctly determine the length of the foot, you need to circle its outline by standing on a blank sheet of paper. After this, you need to measure with the help of a ruler the distance between the two farthest points. This will be the required length (DS in inches). The following formulas must be applied to the obtained value to find out the corresponding value:

  • for men = 3 × DS in inches - 22;
  • for women = 3 × DS in inches - 20.5;
  • for women (on the "FIA" scale) = 3 × DS in inches - 21;
  • for kids = 3 × DS in inches - 11.67.
