Van Bommel shoemaking is still a matter of craftsmanship and we continuously strive to create the best fit possible. But it is also this very aspiration which can make it more difficult to determine your right shoe size. Below you will find a size conversion chart detailing UK sizes in centimetres and how these numbers translate into European sizes for you to easily determine your size.
Fit of the shoe
In order to find a shoe that fits the width of your foot, we offer three different widths:
G: For rather slender feet
G ½: for regular feet
H: For rather wide feet
In addition to the length and width, the type of shoe last also determines the fit of a shoe. You can see the width of a shoe on every product detail page. You can also filter your search by G width, G ½ width and H width so that you only get to see certain shoe widths. Every shoe is available in one width only. We work with numerous types of shoe lasts. The last also gives clues about how tapered the toe area is and what the height of the instep is going to be like.
Lastly, the type of closure of a shoe is also important when it comes to the right fit. If you have a high instep for instance, a derby closure (with three lace holes) may be more suitable for you than a closure with five lace holes.
Our belts are available in three different lengths: 95 cm, 105 cm and 115 cm. The length is measured all around while the belt is closed in the third hole. When measuring the entire length of the belt, you start from the buckle (at the end where the leather part begins) up to the third hole.
