All of us in choosing the next new pair of boots, shoes draw the most direct attention to the material from which it is made, whether natural or artificial materials, the availability of accessories (Velcro fasteners, laces, zippers, decorative items), aesthetic appearance.However, not every shoe sits perfectly suitable size in the leg and has to fit the person.
no secret that if the shoe man picked up correctly, it will slide off, or vice versa, press (and this factor can lead to circulatory problems).With what it can be connected?Of course, it all depends on each particular model, domestic or foreign manufacturer.And that each of us means by size?Is it only the length of the foot?After all, in addition to this figure, the length of the foot, there is another term that is peculiar to the footwear industry, is the fullness of the shoe (Table fullness will be given below).Unfortunately, this concept is not often we come across, and many did not hear about it.However, it is also based at obuvki fitting,
What is the fullness of shoes?
This measure girth of the foot in the place where the bone (this part of the foot is considered the most wide forefoot).The indicator of completeness of footwear depends on the group of blocks which are divided by age and sex.Table completeness shoe detail in GOST 3927-88.Today, however, not all manufacturers are turning to the state standards, as well as, and often do not specify this option on your product.It is believed that if completeness is not specified, it corresponds to the average (normal) value.In addition, many companies specialize in the production and release of a particular shoe completeness (very narrow, narrow, normal, broader medium, wide).This indicator is especially important for sports equipment.These include skates, ski boots and other sports shoes.
This figure indicated in the alphanumeric equivalent.Digital is characteristic of Russia and European countries.For the UK and the US completeness of footwear (table will be shown below) - this letter (in the Latin alphabet - A, B, C, D, F at intervals of 5 mm) option.In our country, according to the conventional standards applied gradation 1-12 with 4-mm intervals.The difference between the lowest and the highest rate can be as much as 5 cm. In European countries, the completeness varies between 1-8 in steps of 5 mm.
Some simple rules for determining the completeness
To determine the proper fullness of your foot shoe, you can resort to a simple formula or online applications.Is it your parameters will give you the option desired (it is quite fast and convenient way).Also for clarity, the assistant may be the fullness of the table of shoes.Now, first things first.
First we need to figure out the length (the most protruding points) and width (at the widest part of the ledge toe) of the foot (in mm).Measurements shall be made for each foot separately, ideally in the evening or at the end of the working day and better on thin sock, since few bare foot wearing shoes, not counting summer options - sandals, clogs and others.Further, among the obtained results of length and width of the foot selects the largest.
formula for determining the completeness of boots, shoes
This formula will help determine the completeness of the required measure of shoes as a man and a woman, and it looks as follows:
W = 0,25hV - 0,15hS - A,
where W - indicator of completeness;
B - width (girth) of the foot;
C - foot length;
A - coefficient figure that has a constant value: 16 - for women's shoes size range 33,5-40 corresponding 21-27,5 cm, and 17 - for men's shoes size range 38,5-44,5 correspondingfeet in length 24,5-30,5 cm (shown in picture numbers A, the formula does not apply).
Table completeness shoe
ratio foot size and width of the foot demonstrates a table, which is acceptable to the spacing between adjacent rooms in a 5 mm.
|size||Completeness (lifting), mm|
According to the table, index6 fullness - a measure of the completeness of the normal stop.Indicators 2-5 already characterize the foot middle, and 7 and then - broader medium, wide, full, very broad.
Table fullness of women's shoes is somewhat different from men's.The difference is the same value, that is, the number 1 corresponds to the fullness of women's shoes in men figure 2;number 2 in women the corresponding figure for men 3, etc.
American system of establishing the completeness of shoes
As mentioned above, in the United States has its own system, through which the fullness is indicated shoes.Table (United States), below - a visual confirmation.

|B (M (medium) / N (narrow))||Normal||slightly narrower normal|
C (W (wide) / N (narrow))
|Slightly wider than normal||slightly narrower normal|
