Paul Evans Sizing Guide
We attempt to be as accurate as possible in describing the sizing of our shoes in each product description. Please read the sizing description of each shoe carefully prior to placing your order.
Generally speaking, most of our shoes run a full size larger than traditional US dress shoes. This isn't irregular! Most Italian brands (i.e., Gucci, Ferragamo, Tod's) run larger than US dress shoes (i.e., Allen Edmonds).
This means you need to order 1 size below your regular dress shoe size (i.e., order a size 9 if you wear size 10 Allen Edmonds). If you happen to know your Brannock device shoe size, just subtract 1.5 sizes from that measurement to arrive at your Paul Evans size.
Regarding toe space as it relates to fit, you cannot assess the fit of our shoes by the amount of extra space in the toe area. There will always be room past your toes, that's how our lasts are designed. Resist the urge to push down where the front of your toes are.
Your focus in regards to sizing should be how well your heel sits in the shoe, if there is enough width across the widest part of your toe, and if you can comfortably walk in the shoe. Are you experiencing minor heel slippage in our shoes? That's completely normal as the shoes will take a few wears to conform to your feet. Please note, if your heel is coming entirely out of the shoe, it's too large!
