Female sneakerheads know, men's shoes are very cool and look just as stylish on women. It just takes a bit of math to figure out the conversion from men's sizes to women's. Warning: Your shoe-shopping habit is about to get crazy.

Find the men's shoe size on the inner or outer sole or the inside of the tongue of the shoe.

Add 1.5 to the men's shoe size. If the men's shoe is a size 6, the women's version would be a size 7.5.

Try on the shoe to confirm the sizing, as some brands run smaller or larger than others.


European shoe sizing is unisex. A men's size 41 is the same as a women's size 41.
