The Right Shoe Project
Shoes are made in many factories around the world and even models within the same brand can be quite different. To assist our customers in choosing the right size, we measure every shoe we receive. All this information is compiled so you can simply enter the length of your foot in centimetres, choose your preferred fit, and our calculator will recommend a size for you! Then, as you browse the website across various brands and models of shoes, we will provide a recommendation of your sizing in each model.
Still not sure? If you're in Brisbane, feel free to come in to our store in Milton for a fitting. Otherwise, you can contact our team for assistance and advice.
If you would like to contribute to helping other customers please contact us with your shoe size, foot length and how well your shoes fit.

NikWax Down Proof adds durable water repellency to down-filled items, maintaining their insulation and breathability in cold and damp conditions.
Down-filled apparel, blankets, sleeping bags, etc. are used to provide lightweight insulation to keep you warm: down allows air to be trapped between its filaments and warmed by body heat. But if down gets wet it clumps together, causing it to lose loft and insulation, as it can't trap air effectively. Water conducts heat away from the body up to 25x faster than air. Wet down will also gain weight and significantly reduce breathability, leaving you cold, wet and uncomfortable. Therefore it is vital to stop down-filled gear from getting wet by applying Durable Water Repellency (DWR). Through extended use, all DWR will eventually wear off and need to be renewed.
NikWax Down Proof will:
Nikwax Down Proof is a safe, easy to use product for down filled gear. It is quick to apply in a washing machine and ensures that the treatment goes right through the item, treating both the outer fabric and the down fill. The DWR of Nikwax Down Proof develops on air drying.
HOW TO USE
To maintain waterproofing always wash with NikWax Down Wash. Do not use detergents.
