All Stride Bootwear Tall Boot shoe sizes are measured using European sizing (EU). If you do not know what your shoe size is in EU, then you will need to convert your size from your current shoe measurement system to EU. You can convert US shoe sizes to EU sizes using our US/EU Shoe Conversion Chart (Click to open in new window). Stride Bootwear tall boots run true to size and you should not have to account for any differences in shoe sizes to match our fitting. Once you have successfully found your EU shoe size, Find this number on the Stride Bootwear Tall Boot Size Chart.
Once you have found your European Shoe Size, you will need to find your calf width (in centimetres). You need to do this measurement with your breeches and riding socks on. Start by taking a tape measure (in centimetres) and measure the WIDEST PART of BOTH of your calves. If both of your calves have different measurements, use the larger measurement of the two calves. Make sure that you measure in centimetres! Do not measure in inches and try to convert the measurement! (Trust us on this one). Circle the corresponding set of calf widths on the right hand side of the column on the chart. TIP: If you are in-between calf sizes, go larger. Boots that are too tight around the calf could put your zippers at risk!
After you have found your calf width, you will need to find your calf height measurement. This is where having another person help you measure would be beneficial. Essentially you are measuring the distance from the bottom of your heel to the crease in the back of your knee (in centimeters). Be sure that the leg is slightly bent (like the diagram shown) and that you are barefoot, or in socks. This measurement should be taken from the back, and not from the front or sides. Once you have your measurement, add 1.5CM to this number to account for drop. Circle the closest measurement to your corresponding foot size and calf width options.
