Footwear sizing is inherently personal, but after a decade or so of speaking with our customers, we have developed some sizing guidelines which will help nearly everyone find the perfect fit. Here you’ll find a summary of the most critical sizing information. When shopping on our website, you will always find a sizing recommendation beneath each size selector.
Order your size as measured on The Brannock Device.
Nearly all of our Goodyear Welt and Stitchdown Construction footwear runs true-to-size. This means most will find a perfect fit with their size as measured on The Brannock Device. When new, our True-to-Size footwear should fit slightly snug, but will break-in after a few wears.
Order ½ size smaller than your size as measured on The Brannock Device.
Most of our Genuine Handsewn outdoor moccasins and some of Goodyear Welt footwear will fit best when sized ½ size smaller than your size as measured on The Brannock Device. Half-Down footwear should fit snugly when new, but will stretch and conform to your foot with wear.
Order 1 full size smaller than your size as measured on The Brannock Device.
It’s critical that our Genuine Handsewn slip-on loafers fit extremely snug when new, since there are no laces to further secure them once the leather stretches—and it will stretch considerably. This is why we strongly recommend you order 1 full size smaller than your size as measured on The Brannock Device. This is especially true for those who wear loafers with thin or no socks.
