Please remember that while following the guidance below will help you get the correct size, the foot is a three dimensional shape and factors such as the depth of the arch will also affect sizing which we are unable to account for here. As such the sizing guide is not a guarantee that the size will be correct. Customers will be responsible for the postage cost of any exchange unless an item was sent in error.
On a general note, jig shoes should not be purchased too large as the ball of the foot needs to sit correctly in the shoe to be able to generate the required sound with the tips. Jig shoes which are too large also make toe walking and more advanced techniques very difficult. A little toe wiggle room is fine but the distance from the tip of the longest toe to the top of the shoe should be no more than 5-10mm (depending on the level of the dancer).
We recommend that you order your normal UK school shoe or dress shoe size (Please see below for our UK/US/EU conversion chart). If you have a wide foot then we would suggest you go up half a size and order the wider fitting. Our wider fitting jig shoe has a rounded toe which gives more room for the toes.
Fays shoes are a narrower fit and we do not recommend them for dancers with a wider foot.
We suggest that you order half a size larger than your normal UK school shoe or dress shoe size (Please see below for our UK/US/EU conversion chart).
Rutherford's jig shoes are very similar in size to the wide fit Antonio Pacelli jig shoe. We recommend that you order your UK normal school shoe or dress shoe size (Please see below for our UK/US/EU conversion chart). If you have a wide foot then we would suggest you go up half a size.
The Hullachan jig shoe is true to size so we would suggest ordering your normal shoe size. Half a size smaller if you like a tight fit.

Then it may be useful to trace arond your foot to work out its length and then compare it to the above sizing chart. Please see our Foot Tracing page for instructions on how to do an accurate foot tracing.
