To determine a person's shoe size, stand with socks on with the heels flat against a wall and place a piece of blank, white paper under the foot. While standing on the paper, have another person make a mark at the longest part of the foot, and then measure this mark in inches to determine what size of shoe is correct based on the length of the foot.

Nike recommends measuring the foot length during the afternoon, as the feet typically swell during the day and so are at their largest during this time. The company also recommends measuring the length of both feet, as it is common for a person's feet to be of slightly different lengths.
