Understanding Australian Shoe Sizes

Choosing the correct size can be confusing as Australian stores sell shoes from many different countries and mark them in AU sizes, US sizes and even EU sizes!
A simple way to choose the correct size and avoid all the confusion is to use the following basic rules:


AU and US women's sizes are the same.

MEN and KIDS: 

AU and UK men & kids' sizes are the same.

Sneakers only

In Australia, sports stores generally sell sneakers in US sizes for Men, Women and Kids.

Non-Sneakers style

For non- sneaker shoe styles, individual brands can tend to convert sizes differently, especially when there are half sizes involved. Because of this it can be misleading to try and use one chart as a rule for all conversions. Instead, The Shoe Link aim to list individual conversions in the drop down box wherever possible.

Please, check our Return Policy for further peace of mind when purchasing shoes from us.
