Choose the right size:

  • Choose the right size: Finding the right shoe size can sometimes be challenging. However, measuring your foot correctly can make a big difference in finding the right fit. This is especially important when shopping online and not being able to try on the shoes beforehand.Place a piece of paper on the floor, against a wall (large enough for your foot to fit on).
  • Stand with your heel against the wall and apply pressure to your foot.
  • Make a mark in front of your longest toe.
  • Measure both feet, as they may not be identical, and use the larger measurement when choosing shoe size.
  • We recommend measuring your feet in the evening as feet can slightly swell throughout the day.

It is also important to allow some room for your toes to move, so consider adding half to a full centimeter to your foot length when choosing closed shoes and boots.

So, your new fabulous purchase from Copenhagenshoes has arrived, and of course, you can't wait to start wearing them. But before you show them off to your friends, we would like to provide you with some helpful advice regarding leather, size, and fit.

New shoes often require some getting used to, and you may be unsure if they fit just right. Follow these tips to have the best possible experience with your purchase:

  1. Wear the shoes indoors, preferably on a carpeted floor, to protect the soles in case they need to be returned.
  2. Avoid testing the shoes without socks. Wear the socks you typically use.
  3. Remember to put on both shoes/boots and walk around for at least 5 minutes.
  4. If you feel that your new shoes/boots are a bit too tight, remember that leather will mold to your foot 100%. This is one of the benefits of using high-quality leather in our styles. The shoe/boot will stretch slightly over your instep and in width. However, leather has its limits, and the material cannot stretch in length. If the shoe/boot feels very tight, we recommend going up one size.
  5. If the shoe feels tight around the heel and/or toes, there is a high probability that the selected size is too small. In this case, choose a larger size. If the shoe/boot is loose around the heel and/or toes, go down one size.
  6. If you are between two sizes, an insole is the solution. It is a simple and often overlooked solution that works great. With an insole, you can go up or down by half a size. In the winter season, you can also choose an insole with wool and cold protection to keep you even warmer.
  7. In many of our styles, we use our special Copenhagenshoes latex foam insoles. This makes the shoes much more comfortable to wear. The foam will slightly adjust under the weight of your foot after a couple of weeks. This is completely normal.
  8. Our highly skilled customer service colleagues are ready to assist you. Contact us via email or phone, and we will help you if you have any questions about a product regarding size, color, or fit.
  9. Remember that you always have free exchanges, so we can definitely find the right size for you. We hope you will love your shoes as much as we have loved designing them. Enjoy!

WHAT TO BE AWARE OF REGARDING SHOE SIZES Shoe sizes can be a headache for many people, both when shopping online and in a physical store. There are EU shoe sizes, UK shoe sizes, and US shoe sizes, but what is the difference?

At first glance, EU shoe sizes may look very similar to those from the UK, but they can change quickly. There is also a significant difference between men's and women's shoes, except in the EU, where it is the same. Shoe sizes in centimeters are more commonly used when shoes are custom-made for you, but they can also be found in some mass-produced products.

If you are unsure about the sizes and you are shopping online, you should always look up what size corresponds to your measurement in our size guide. This way, you can avoid disappointment and waste in the transportation process.


When it comes to shoes that are not made of particularly flexible material, it can be advantageous to go up one size. If you are very unsure, visit a physical store and seek assistance from an employee, so you can be sure to get the right size. Wearing the wrong size can cause discomfort in your feet, even if you don't notice it immediately, and it may fit incorrectly even if it seems fine at first glance.

Also, keep in mind that if the shoe has a particular shape, such as a pointed toe, your normal size may vary.

Finding the right size is essential for the comfort and overall well-being of your feet!
