How to find your Wei-Rui weightlifting shoe size

on February 03, 2012

Not 100% sure what size of Wei-Rui lifting shoe you should order?  Confused by some of the recommendations on the review sites or forums?   Take a few minutes and measure your foot using these instructions.   This should get you pretty close to your Wei-Rui shoe size.

You'll need about 3 minutes and:
  1. A chair
  2. A sheet of paper on which to trace an outline of your foot
  3. A pen or pencil
  4. A measuring tape or ruler
  5. Socks of the type you intend to wear with the shoes

Follow these steps for your longest foot.  It may be easier to have someone else do the tracing of the foot.

1.    Sit in a chair with the foot firmly placed on a piece of paper large enough to make a tracing around the whole foot. Your leg should be tilted slightly forward so it will not interfere with the pencil as you trace around your heel.

2.    Trace an outline of the foot with a pencil held perpendicular to the paper at all times. Ensure that the pencil is held snug against the foot during the tracing. 

3.    Measure the length and width of the tracing at the points shown in the diagram below. (From Toe to heel)

4.    The tracing will be slightly larger than your feet because of the thickness of the pencil. Subtract 2 mm (about 1/16 inch) from each measurement to compensate for the thickness of the pen or pencil. This correction gives you the actual length and width of your foot.

5.    Add 1 centimeters** (~0.4 inches) to this measurement to allow for the space needed between the tip of your toes and the end of the shoe.   (**If you feet are very wide, add 1.5cm (~0.6 inches) centimeters instead to compensate).   

6.    With the measurement from step 5, find the closest inner sole length measurement in the chart below. 


So, if the tracing of your foot measures 26.1 cm long (10 5/16 inches), you subtract 2 mm (1/16 inch) to get the actual length of your foot which is 25.9 cm or 10 ¼ inches.   Adding 1 cm get us to 26.9cm (~10.6 inches).   This works out to size 40.5EURO/8US on the chart.
