Know your size - Axel Arigato Sizing Guide

Axel Arigato sneakers are hugely popular these days. The brand is known for its clean, modern designs and brings this back to every shoe. But do Axel Arigato come up big? Or do you need to size up? To give you a hand in scoring your next pair, here we tell you how the sneakers fall and which size is best for you.

We begin the first crucial step: measuring shoe size.

How to determine your own shoe size

First of all, it is important to determine your own shoe size. When you order sneakers online, it is not as easy as when you walk into a shoe shop and can try on the shoe on the spot.

Here is what you need to measure your own shoe size:

  • 2 sheets of A4 paper
  • A pencil
  • A ruler

How to calculate the dimensions of your foot:

Take a sheet of paper and the pencil, choose a wall you can stand upright against, and put your heel all the way up against it. It is best to put on the socks you will also wear in your new shoes. Secure the sheet of paper to the floor with tape or your weight and stand on it with your heel against the wall. It is best to ask someone to draw around your foot with the pencil. Once you have a nice outline, grab a ruler and measure the distance from the heel to the tip of your big toe. Record this result in centimetres.

Repeat this process on your other foot too. It may sound duplicate, but for many people, the sizes differ from one foot to another. Then take the largest foot as a reference to determine your shoe size using the appropriate table. Remember that information from different manufacturers may differ and therefore you should always follow their size charts.

You can use each brand's size charts to find the perfect shoe size by comparing it to your measured size. But beware! Many styles differ in fit, even if the brand is the same. Manufacturers often write this in the description.

We've listed some popular Axel Arigato models for you here, so once you're confident of your shoe size, you can get shopping!
