How to choose rain boots size

by DRIPDROP Boots 21 Dec 2021 0 Comments

The task of fitting your foot perfectly in a pair of new boots can be difficult. We spoke with a footwear specialist Irina at DRIPDROP Boots Hangzhou office to compile a useful guide for anyone in search of the perfect rain boots.

1) Measure both feet — You’ve got two feet, and they aren’t necessarily the same size. Exact measurements will help a fitter get you in the right size pair.

2) Remember the width — Length is the standard but be sure to also measure the width of your foot.

3) Know the measure of calf circumference and shape of your foot — Be careful if you buy wellies. You should know every inch of your legs and feet to choose perfect-fitting tall rain boots and check the brand size table before buying.

4) Ask the seller for exact sizes  — At the store, a trained boot-fitter is like a matchmaker of boots and feet. Lean on their expertise and possibly years of boot-fitting experience.

5) Measure your old boots — It will be very useful information about the previous boots' outsole measure and width to choose the right size for you now.

6) Be careful with subjective sizing — Certain brands and models will fit differently even if labeled the same size. Look at the brand size table before purchasing.

7) Looks come second — The boots should look good but don’t buy outdoors boots based heavily on aesthetics.

8) Reviews as advice — Online reviews are a great resource for shoppers. But footwear is very personal so don’t buy a boot that doesn’t fit right based only on positive reviews.

9) Choose rain boots a half size or one size larger than your usual shoe size — Rain boots are difficult to stretch on your own foot, so if you are in doubt about the size, it is better to choose a half or one size larger than usual.

10) Wear the boots with your own socks — The ones you’re going to hike in with the boots you’re going to buy. (And if you use after-market insoles or custom orthotics, bring them along, too.)

What is Lorem Ipsum? Lorem Ipsum is simply dummy text of the printing and typesetting industry. Lorem Ipsum has been the industry's standard dummy text ever since the 1500s, when an unknown printer took a galley of type and scrambled it to make a type specimen book. It has survived not only five centuries, but also the leap into electronic typesetting, remaining essentially unchanged. It was popularised in the 1960s with the release of Letraset sheets containing Lorem Ipsum passages, and more recently with desktop publishing software like Aldus PageMaker including versions of Lorem Ipsum. Why do we use it? It is a long established fact that a reader will be distracted by the readable content of a page when looking at its layout. The point of using Lorem Ipsum is that it has a more-or-less normal distribution of letters, as opposed to using 'Content here, content here', making it look like readable English. Many desktop publishing packages and web page editors now use Lorem Ipsum as their default model text, and a search for 'lorem ipsum' will uncover many web sites still in their infancy. Various versions have evolved over the years, sometimes by accident, sometimes on purpose (injected humour and the like).
