Measure your foot at the end of the day, when the length of the foot is close to its maximum.
Preparation for measurement.
Prepare a sheet of paper.
Bend the side of the sheet to form a rim (as shown at the picture).
Put the sheet in any corner of the wall and floor without skirting board (ideally – a room door).
Put on your socks and prepare a pencil.
Measurement
Firstly put one foot on a sheet of paper so that your heel can press the wall or door behind it.
Transfer the body weight to this leg, bend and make a mark (1mm) near the longest toe (big or the second).
It is important to hold the pencil strictly vertically and not to direct it under toes! The pencil deviation from the vertical position immediately affects the placement of the mark and makes the measurement wrong.
In the same way measure the second foot, because the length of the right and left foot sometimes may vary up to 10 millimeters.
Writing of the length
Measure the distance from the bend of the sheet to the marked point with the ruler and write down the length in millimeters.
It is important if you are overweight and your legs tend to swell by the end of the day or in case of chronic diseases of the toes’ joints (for example, bursitis), add to the length of your foot 0.5 cm. This is necessary in order to minimize mechanical pressure of the joints and to avoid fatigued injuries
