Step three: measure the length of your both your feet and write down the longest size. Just like the tailor takes your waist measures, measuring your feet is an important step towards the creation of your perfect tailored shoes. We will guide through this experience: once we know your measurements, we can advise you on the best fits and styles and enhance your custom-made experience.

Don’t worry, measuring your feet is very simple and can be done in 3 steps:

  • Foot Lenght
  • Joint Circumference
  • Instep Circumference


Place your foot on a paper, heel to the wall and using a pencil, trace a straight line at the end of the toe. With the measuring tape, check both your feet and write down the longest size (eg: 27,4 cm). Then find your DIS size on the DIS size chart.

In order to have our fit specialists help you nailing down your sizing and advice you on the best shoe leather/color/design combinations, please also measure your joint and your instep as follows and let us know your measurements:


Place the measuring tape under your foot and measure the circumference around your foot at the widest point, usually where your toe joints meet your foot.
Check both your feet and write down the longest size (eg: 22,3 cm).


Find the highest position of your arch and instep. Then measure around your foot over these two positions. Check both your feet and write down the longest size (eg: 25,2 cm).

Finally, here’s three tips for designing stylish men shoe in large sizes:

  • Amongst all our lasts, the 669 “Versatile” last is the one which is larger, so we advise you to pick a design built on that last. The 669 “Versatile” last is characterized by a round toe, large sole and fits EEE American (H UK, 9 FR). On this last you can pick several shoe designs: a double monks with wingtip (“Alberto”), a single double buckle (“Dante”), a penny loafer (“Uliassi”), an Oxford with toe cap (“Luigi”), an Oxford with wingtip (“Da Vinci”) a Derby plain (“Pertini”), a Derby with wingtip (“Volta”), a Desert Boot (“Marco Polo”), a Chelsea boot with wingtip (“Luciano”), an ankle boot with wingtip (“Colombo”). See the DIS 669 last.
  • Prefer very soft leathers like suede, pebble grain calf leather or plain calf leather;
  • Pick resistant soles like leather sole, anti-slip leather sole, Vibram rubber sole with grip and Vibram rubber sole with bullets;
  • Go for a open-laced design like Derby, Desert Boots, Open-laced Ankle Boots;
  • Don’t forget to match your shoe leather/color with a belt in the same combination! A fine leather belt it’s not a mean of holding up your pants, it is a statement of style, just like shoes. A belt can dress up your whole outfit! To buy our custom belts, you have to measure your waistline and you’ll get the right size to buy. We handcraft belts for all waistlines from 59-63 cm (23-24 inches) until 159-163 cm (62-64 inches).
