New Balance sizing notes

  • New Balance sneakers fit true to size, so we'd recommend that for most sneaker styles you take your normal size. Some shoes may have specific sizing notes, so check each product page carefully.
  • New Balance shoes are made to fit directly out of the box, meaning that – unlike so many sneaker brands – they do not need to be broken in.
  • New Balance sneakers are offered in half sizes, ensuring that you'll find the closest fit possible
  • Choose the larger size if your feet are between sizes. You can adjust for a better fit with socks, insoles and lacing patterns.
  • New Balance offers one of the largest selection of shoes in extended widths, from X-Narrow to XX-Wide, making it even easier to find the correct fit.
  • Use the New Balance size chart below to convert your US or EU sizing into UK sizing.
  • To measure the length of your foot, place your foot on the floor with your heel against the wall and place a ruler parallel to the inside of your foot. Then place an object with a straight edge across the top of your foot, the edge touching the tip of your longest toe. Take the centimetre measurement.
  • To get the best fit, measure your feet in the late afternoon when your feet are at their largest due to normal swelling.
