The Standardized Cycling Shoe Size Chart

By Perry Hua

What’s more difficult? Finding a cycling shoe that fits right or finding your perfect soulmate? It’s obviously the former. Choosing cycling shoes is tough and probably the biggest reason why is because there isn’t a set standard used by cycling shoe manufacturers when it comes to sizing. A size in one shoe brand might fit narrower or wider than the same size in another brand. Or, they might have differing lengths when it comes down to the last. Which means, if you pick a pair of cycling shoes based on your US or UK size, you might end up with a shoe that doesn’t accommodate your foot very well. This is a recipe for disaster if you’re looking to buy shoes online. But lucky for you, there is now a cycling shoe size chart where you can pick shoes based on your foot’s metrics and with different brands.

Tips On Using the Cycling Shoe Size Chart

  • Use the ‘Filter by Brand’ to narrow down the list to your preferred brands

How to Use Sizing Chart

  • Wear the socks you’ll use with your cycling shoes for a more accurate fit
  • Measure both feet and use the larger foot measurement when consulting the chart
  • When calculating the length of your foot, add 2-4mm for comfort and use that number
  • When calculating the width (widest part) of your foot, subtract 5mm or 1/5″ and use that number
