Shoe Sizing 101
Here are some of the different shapes of shoes
In Shoe A, the footbed is more squared off. This makes it perfect for more squared-off or cascading toes, as in Feet C and E. Women with a long little toe will have more room at the end of their shoes for most of their toes (Feet A and D). Women with very angular feet, Foot A and B will have lots of sole space on the outsides of the shoe. Shoe B has a more rounded toebox, making it perfect for most feet, except the most angular foot, A and B. Shoe C has a tapered toe. This is perfect for Feet A and D, as there is plenty of space for that longer smaller toe. It works well for B and C, also. Women with squared off toes would have to go up a half size and have some room at the end of the footbed. Shoe D has an even more tapered toe box, but also a good width, making it good for all types. Of course, more squared off toes, Feet D and F would have to order a half size up.
