District One Label uses EU sizing as a reference for all shoe collections, and runs in full size.

Our handmade shoes are crafted on various styles, shapes and sizes, depending on the specific last used, the right size may vary slightly on some models.

In order to choose your size accurately, we advise that you carefully follow our foot measurement instructions, and then reference to the size guide on each product page to find the recommended size for you.

Measurement Instructions

  1. Take your measurements in the afternoon or evening, when your feet are expanded.
  2. Put on a pair of socks that you usually wear for the shoes.
  3. While seated and on a flat surface, place your foot on a piece of A4 paper.
  4. With a pencil, hold as straight up-and-down as possible, mark the back of your heel and the tip of your longest toe
  5. With a ruler, measure your foot length. Please take the measurement from the tip of the longest toe and at the back of the heel.
  6. Repeat the same with the other foot and use the one that is the longest.
  7. Use the measurement to determine your shoe size on the chart in each product page, or the corresponding size in the table below.
  8. If your measurement is in between sizes, recommended to round off to the nearest size
