Terms and conditions:
Fivefinger trail shoe that's perfect for outdoor fitness, trail running, light trekking, and travelling. It forms a protective tool for your foot, allowing for ground sensory perception, dexterity and performance.
Measure your foot and compare to the guide below. We recommend subtracting 0.5cm from your foot measurement for a snug fit, or adding 0.5cm for a loose fit. Otherwise, compare your foot measurement directly to the guide.
To measure your foot most accurately, stand on a tape measure with your heel against a wall. While standing up and looking over your foot, read the measurement at the end of your longest toe. Remember to measure both feet and use the measurement of your longer foot.
Compare your foot measurement to the below guide to find your best shoe size. If you are between sizes we recommend going for the larger size.
These shoes are best with a snug fit. We recommend trying these shoes in-store or purchasing a Try 2 Anything to achieve the best fit possible.

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.
