What is the difference between Chinese and US shoe sizes?

There is no definitive answer to this question, as the sizing system for shoes varies from country to country. However, there are some general trends that can be observed.

In China, the shoe size is typically measured in centimeters, whereas in the US, it is typically measured in inches. This means that a shoe that is size 9.5 in the US will be size 24.5 cm, which is roughly a size 8 according to US standards.

This discrepancy of centimeters versus inches also means that if you are looking for shoes on one side of the Pacific or the other, you will need to know both your Chinese shoe size and your US shoe size.

Shoe sizes also vary between men and women, with men’s shoes typically being larger than women’s shoes. In the US, there is a wider range of shoe sizes available for women, as the smallest size is usually a 4 and the largest size is a 12. This is not the case in China, where the smallest size is a 3 and the largest is a 9.

Is there a Chinese shoe size conversion chart?

While there isn’t one definitive answer to this question, it can be estimated that male shoes sold in China have a US equivalent of about 2 sizes smaller than the men’s US shoe size, or about 1.5 sizes larger than women’s US shoe size. Female shoes have a US equivalent of about 1 size smaller than the women’s US shoe size.

Hopefully this gives you a general idea of how to convert between Chinese and US shoe sizes!
