Looking to buy a pair of shoes online? But wondering how you choose your shoe size when online shopping? Use our  fail safe guide to buying the perfect shoe size online! 

Online shopping ‘fails’ happen all the time but making sure you order the right shoe size should never be a problem. With a couple of simple checks and quick tips, we can help you get the right size shoe every time. 

There is nothing worse than finding the perfect pair of women’s ballet flats or sneakers online, patiently waiting for the delivery driver to arrive only to discover you’ve ordered the wrong size! You have a beautiful pair of handmade Italian shoes and you can’t wear them! So you box them back up, send them away and wait for the right size to arrive on your doorstep. This could all be avoided if you just knew the best way to know your shoe size when shopping online! 

At Cammino we get asked 'How do you choose your shoe size when online shopping?’ all the time. So here is our quick and simple guide to making sure you never have to bother with a size return ever again! 

There are a few simple checks you can make before ordering online to ensure that the size will be correct.

  1. When shopping for shoes try and order them in your 'normal' shoe size, not one size up  as this may cause problems with fit. If you have a wider foot or usually a half size then you should go up a half a size.
  2. When using a size conversion chart always measure your foot in centimetres and not inches as the conversion charts are based on this metric. For example, an Australian shoe size of 38 is equivalent to a European 39 or US 11. Inches can vary depending on who you ask so it's best to just stick with centimetres.
  3. When buying a new brand of shoes always make sure you measure your foot to determine the size if you are buying shoes online. While shoe brands all use a similar sizing chart, there will be some slight differences from brand to brand.

How to choose the right shoe size for ballet flats 

All our women's ballet flats should fit firmly to start with. They will give a little and loosen up with wear as a result of soft calf leather used in the upper sole. If your measurement is between sizes, we recommend you select the larger size. 

Our ballet flats are designed for maximum comfort and the elasticated edge will help your foot fit into the shoe perfectly. Don’t worry if you have a wide foot or a narrow fit the ballet flat will mould to your foot like a sock and fit comfortably around your foot regardless of the shape. The rubber sole is flexible which allows some movement in the base of the shoe also. Cammino women's ballet flats can be worn with an orthotic insole, but we recommend ordering the size up from your usual size if you would like to insert an insole.

How to choose the right shoe size for sneakers 

Cammino sneakers have much more room than a ballet flat. Our women's sneakers can be true to size or a half-size smaller and we recommend the latter if you wear orthotics with your sneakers. As with our ballet flats, our women's sneakers can be worn with an orthotic insole also. 

Our sneakers are the ultimate stylish womens sneakers and have been designed to fit comfortably so you can wear them day after day. Find your perfect fit by measuring the length of your foot and checking against a sizing chart to ensure you have the right shoe size according to the measurements.

Tips to find your foot length and shoe size:

  1. Stand on a level surface with your heels against a straight edge or wall.
  2. Place a ruler on the floor beside the inside of your foot from heel to toe. 
  3. Position an object with a flat edge across the tip of your longest toe.
  4. Your foot length measurement (in centimetres) is where the flat edge crosses the ruler.
