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.
