Footwear Sizing Differences: Men, Women, Children

Differences In Footwear Sizes

The difference in length of 1/3 inch applies to men’s, women’s and children’s footwear. A problem with the system involves the way it was developed. The sizing scales for each gender are different. You can even find differences in American versus European sizing, but that different topic. Unfortunately, in America we do not start with a small number for length in children and go to the largest number for men.

Children’s sizes start at 0 and go to 13, then start over with Size 1 and usually go to 4. Men’s length sizes can start at Size 4 and normally go all the way to 16, while women’s sizes may start at 2 and go to 12 or 13. These length sizes vary, so to properly measure and fit, you should use a measuring device and inventory for the particular grouping you are fitting.

One constant you will notice in men’s and women’s sizing is the difference of two sizes. That is, on the shoe size scale comparison, a man’s 8 will be the same length as a woman’s 10. But remember that this is only toe length. When fitting, keep in mind that the lasts are probably designed differently for the male or female foot.

Iron Age Work Boots: No Longer a Thing of the Past

Iron Age Work Boots

Iron Age Work Boots Will Be Available In 2012

It was an exciting time. Optimistic, really. The worst war the world had ever seen had finally ended, the enemy defeated. More than four million American men returned home with goals and dreams and a drive to succeed. To build those dreams with sweat on their brow and determination in their hearts and work boots on their feet. It was 1918. And those work boots were Iron Age work boots.

Iron Age Boots was the very first branded “safety-toe” footwear. The first Iron Age Boots debuted in 1918, after the end of World War I. These brave American men had risked their lives on the battlefield, and they certainly weren’t about to risk a toe on the job site wearing a pair of soft toe work boots. So they turned to this new brand of work boots to keep them safe. They trusted Iron Age’s new “steel toe technology.” And several generations later, American men, and now women, are still trusting Iron Age Boots today. Continue Reading…
