Size Guide

Find Your Perfect Fit

It is important to note when shopping online and in store that there is no real universal sizing system that is reliable across all brands. However, we have included a sizing chart as well as some helpful hints in to help you choose the right pair for you. 

At solea, we generally stock products that are sized according to three distinct sizing systems: US sizing (Canadian), EU sizing, and UK sizing. 

US sizing is gender specific and makes a distinction between Men and Women's sizes, whereas EU and UK are unisex in their sizing systems.

Important Brand Notes

They fit true to size, however due to their rigid arch support, toe bar and ridge, length is not as important as it is for the arch to be in the correct position. All Birkenstock shoes are clinically orthopedic. We recommend coming in to be fitted for your first pair or visiting Birkenstock's Fitting Guide.


This American brand, on average, tends to fit larger than its listed size and most customers find the need to size down in order to get a proper fit. Dansko clogs are to fit with a pinky finger's worth of space between your heel and the back of the clog.
