Shoe Size Conversion Guide

When it comes to shoe shopping, size matters — but it can also be confusing, especially when converting between men's, women's, and grade school (GS) sizes. Fear not! We've simplified the process for you.


Men to Women Conversion:

To find your equivalent women's size from a men's size, simply add 1.5 to the original men's size. It's that easy. For instance, if you're looking at a men's size 10, your women's size would be an 11.5. Just remember: Men's size + 1.5 = Women's size.

Men's Size (US) Women's Size (US)
7.5 9
8 9.5
8.5 10
9 10.5
9.5 11
10 11.5
10.5 12
11 12.5
11.5 13
12 13.5

Women to Men Conversion:

The formula works just as smoothly in reverse. To convert a women's size to men's, subtract 1.5 from the women's size. So, a women's size 10 translates to a men's 8.5. Keep this in mind: Women's size - 1.5 = Men's size.

Women's Size (US) Men's Size (US)
7.5 6
8 6.5
8.5 7
9 7.5
9.5 8
10 8.5
10.5 9
11 9.5
11.5 10
12 10.5
12.5 11
13 11.5

What About Grade School (GS) Sizes?

Here's a little-known tip: Grade school sizes are essentially men's sizes, just crafted smaller to fit younger sneaker fans. This means the above conversion rules apply the same way. For example, a 6GS is equivalent to a women's 7.5, while a 7GS matches a women's size 8.5.

GS Size (US) Women's Size (US)
4 5.5
4.5 6
5 6.5
5.5 7
6 7.5
6.5 8
7 8.5
