Size Guide

Finding the Right Size

Please note that the size chart below should be used as a guide only. Ian’s Shoes for Women tries to provide an accurate size conversion, however due to each brand’s size scale inconsistencies may occur. Some styles have adjustable features, such as adjustable straps, lace-ups or removable / changeable insoles with different fitting systems. This information is detailed on the product pages.

If you would normally take a half size, e.g. 9 1/2 but the style you're looking at doesn't come in halves, we recommend you select a larger size.

If you are based in Adelaide, South Australia and you would prefer to be fitted in person before you purchase, we suggest you visit one in 4 stores in Adelaide where we can help you find your perfect fit. Find our Store Locations here
