PUMA Sizing Guide? For what? I'm sure everyone of you has already had the experience: You order a pair of new sneakers at PUMA and wait a few days full of anticipation for the postman. The shoes finally arrive, you unpack the box, open it immediately and can't wait to rock your new "babies" and then the big shock: The shoe is too big or too small for you. It squeezes the side, squeezes your toes, and and and and… The disappointment is big of course and you realize that you need to send the package back. Bad for the environment - bad for the heart.
To make sure that this will never happen again, and to do something good for our environment, we have created a sizing guide for you. Today we show you your most popular PUMA models and tell you exactly how each shoe fits in its 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.
The Sizing Guide for your PUMA Favourites
PUMA Suede Sizing
Of course, in today's PUMA Sizing Guide we start with one of the classics par excellence. This sneaker has already aroused enthusiasm among sneakerheads from different cultures. Until today the PUMA Suede is a model that finds new fans again and again and never disappears from the surface.
The PUMA Suede offers a lot of space due to its rather normal, i.e. neither wide nor narrow shape. However, the size table of the brand differs a little from other brands. So you should definitely upsize half a size with this model (as with most other models), i.e. order half a size larger than with a true to size model.
Conclusion: upsize by half a size
PUMA RS-X3 Puzzle Sizing
We continue with one of the most popular running/lifestyle silhouettes PUMA has to offer. Since its release, the RS-X3 Puzzle continuously convinces with its elaborate design, high comfort and extremely good colorways!
But now back to sizing: When choosing the right RS-X3 puzzle, there are a few things to consider. Due to the many overlays, which give the shoe a stable fit, but offer a little elasticity, this silhouette can be a bit uncomfortable to wear with extremely wide feet. In general, we recommend to buy half a size up, and in the case of extremely wide feet, you should even buy a whole size bigger.
Conclusion: half a size upsize, with extremely wide feet a full size upsize
PUMA Future Rider Sizing
We continue with one of the brand's latest silhouettes. The Future Rider is a silhouette that has once again made it out of the PUMA archives. With its new features, the Future Rider became a real highlight.
In terms of fitting and sizing PUMA makes it relatively easy for us here. The sneaker fits true-to-size. That means you can easily find your size by comparing the PUMA size chart with your personal foot length.
Since the shoe is cut rather narrowly, we would recommend an upsizing by half a size for very wide feet.
Conclusion: True to size, with very wide feet half a size upsize
PUMA R78 Runner Sizing
The tail light of today's sizing guide is provided by none other than the PUMA R78 Runner. This casual lifestyle sneaker has always convinced with its simple design and is well received by you thanks to its ability to make a good all-rounder.
As you can see on the pictures, the shoe has a certain similarity to the Future Rider model. However, the R78 Runner has a slightly wider fit as it comes with an elastic mesh upper in most cases.
So the shoe allows a certain amount of room inside, which probably also contributes to the fact that this silhouette is true to size in the fitting.
Conclusion: True to size
