Nike Air Jordan Sizing Guide

What is our Air Jordan Sizing Guide for? Even if you know your own shoe size, sometimes when you've bought a new pair of sneakers they unfortunately don't fit right. So we're going to take a look at the different Jordan sneakers available and make sure we find the right size for you.

So that you don't have to send your Jordans back, we start with measuring the shoe size.

How to determine your own shoe size

First of all it is important to determine your own shoe size. If you order online, it's not as easy as just going into a shoe store and trying on the sneakers.

Here's 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 one sheet of paper and the pencil, and choose a wall where you can stand up straight and put your heel completely up against it. It is best to put on the socks that you will be wearing in your new shoes, for example high-cut socks. Fasten the sheet of paper to the floor with tape or your weight and stand on it with your heel touching the wall. The best thing to do is to ask someone to draw around your foor with the pencil. Once you have a nice outline, take your ruler and measure the distance from the heel to the tip of your big toe. Write down this result in centimetres.

Now you repeat this process on your other foot, as almost everyone has two different sized feet. Then take the larger foot as a reference to determine your shoe size using the appropriate chart. Remember that the information provided by the various manufacturers may differ and you should therefore always use their size charts.

You can use the size tables of each brand to find your perfect shoe size by comparing it to your measured size. But watch out! Many styles vary in fit, even if the brand is the same. Often the manufacturers write this in the description.

We've put together some popular Air Jordan models for you here, so check out our Jordan Sizing Guide.

Nike Air Jordan 1

The Air Jordan 1 is THE Jordan. It's also quite easy with the sizing, because the Jordan 1 fits true to size. That means if you normally have a shoe size of 42, then you need a 42 with the AJ1. To find out the exact size, you can check the size chart at Nike.

Conclusion: true to size

Nike Air Jordan 4

Secondly, we have the Air Jordan 4, which was launched in 1989 as the successor to the Jordan III and has become very popular. As with the AJ1 above, the sneakers will fit true to size. So you can feel confident ordering the AJ4 in your normal shoe size.

Conclusion: true to size

Nike Air Jordan 5

The Air Jordan 5 already has a relatively wide fit from its construction, so it's recommended you buy half a size smaller. Because of the wide shape, it will not press on the toes.

Conclusion: size down 1/2 a size

Nike Air Jordan 11

The Air Jordan 11 model is a bit more complicated in terms of sizing. The wide body gives enough space even if you take it half a size smaller, but many people like to wear it true to size. If you are not sure, buy the AJ11 in your normal size.

Conclusion: true to size, or size down 1/2 a size

Nike Air Jordan 6

Lastly we have the Air Jordan 6, which is already very wide and big by itself. Therefore it's recommended to buy a half size smaller here. So if you have a 43, you better take a 42,5.

Conclusion: size down 1/2 a size
