ARC'TERYX MEASUREMENT GUIDE
How to Find Your Foot Measurements
Use the following information to help you find your foot measurments, then select the relevant size from the tables below.
Things you'll need:
• A corner wall with a 90° angle or a cardboard box
• A sheet of paper, a pen and a ruler
• The same type of socks that you would normally wear with your hiking shoes or boots
Measure your foot:
With your foot placed on the ground, nestled in the 90° corner angle of the wall, make sure that your heal is touching the back wall, and that the side of your foot is touching the side wall.
Place a piece of paper underneath your foot and draw a line from directly in front of your big toe across to the side wall.
Then use your pen and ruler to draw a straight line intersecting the line that you just drew in front of your big toe, back towards the rear wall.
Use the above information to help you find your foot measurments, then select the relevant size from the tables below.

I look KAG (Kick Ass Gerl) with it.When it first arrived it looked awesome in its box alone..... It is so beautiful, I took a moment staring at it. It is stiff at the start and after a few kliks with it, its kinda moulded. Fit is true to form. Awesome pair of hiking shoes, unique not quite others

I REALLY wanted these shoes - I loved everything about them! I ordered the size 5, but that unfortunately turned out to be a Euro 36, much too large for me. I would definitely say that they run a bit large, so take this info consideration when ordering. I still love them - they just don't come any smaller (35), so I'm out of luck :-( I really think these are fab shoes, though.

Arc'teryx delivers again!I've been an Arc'teryx customer for over 15 years. When I heard about the approach shoes, I jumped on them like cat on catnip! They not only delivered, they impressed me yet again! Colors are great - I got the purple! Size is true to fit and they are comfy and most importantly - sturdy!! They hold up to my wild climbing expeditions and I love the waterproof application!!

Great Shoe ! Stylish & ToughThis shoe is great for all weather conditions. I like to be outdoors walking my dogs and hiking around. I also really like that they make my size 9 foot look small. I got these for christmas and have pretty much worn them everyday. I like the simple & unique style, the pink accents add a bit of sass without being too much.
