How To Know Your Size In Dr Martens

Buying shoes online can be a daunting task, especially when it comes to finding the right size. Dr. Martens shoes, with their iconic style and durable construction, are no exception. But fear not, as Break Me In Daddy is here to help you navigate the sizing process and ensure that your Dr. Martens fit like a glove.

Determining your size in Dr. Martens shoes requires a few simple steps and some attention to detail. Follow our guide below to find your perfect fit:

1. Measure Your Feet

Before you start browsing for your next Dr. Martens, it's essential to measure your feet accurately. Use a ruler or tape measure to measure the length of your foot from the heel to the tip of your longest toe. Take note of the measurement in both inches and centimeters.

2. Consult the Size Chart

Once you have your foot measurements, refer to the official Dr. Martens size chart. This chart will help you determine your size based on your foot length. Take note that Dr. Martens shoes tend to run larger than regular shoe sizes, so it's crucial to compare your measurements with the provided chart for an accurate fit.

3. Consider the Width

In addition to length, consider the width of your feet. Dr. Martens offers various widths, including regular and wide fits. If you have narrow or wide feet, it's important to take this into account when selecting your size. The official size chart also provides information on different width options available for each size.

4. Read Customer Reviews

One of the best ways to know if a particular Dr. Martens shoe fits true to size is by reading customer reviews. Look for feedback from buyers who have a similar foot size and shape as yours. Their experiences and insights can give you a better idea of how a particular style or model fits.

5. Try Before You Buy

If possible, visit a physical store that carries Dr. Martens and try on different styles in your determined size. This will give you a better understanding of how different models feel on your feet. Keep in mind that certain styles might fit differently due to variations in design and materials.

How To Know Your Size In Dr Martens Example

Let's say you measure your foot and find that it is 10 inches long. Consulting the Dr. Martens size chart, you realize that a size 9 UK/10 US corresponds to your foot length. However, after reading customer reviews, you discover that some buyers recommend sizing down for a better fit in that specific model. With this information, you decide to order a size 8 UK/9 US and a size 9 UK/10 US to try on. After trying both sizes, you determine that the size 8 UK/9 US provides a snug and comfortable fit, ensuring a better experience with your new Dr. Martens.

Now that you know how to determine your size in Dr. Martens, you can confidently shop online and explore the vast range of styles available.
