The exact measurement for EE shoe width depends upon two factors. Width measurements are different for men's and women's shoes. Also, shoe width varies by shoe length.
"EE" is a width designation in both men's and women's shoe sizes. For men's shoes an "EE" designation means wide; in women's shoes it means extra wide.
The standard shoe width for men is D, and the standard shoe width for women is B. Unless the shoe is a non-standard width, it is not noted on the shoe box or label.
To measure shoe width, trace the outline of each foot onto a piece of paper, then use a measuring tape to measure the width. This process takes only a few minutes for each foot and requires two pieces of blank paper, a pencil and a tailor's tape.
A shoe-width chart allows shoppers to measure the width of their feet so they can purchase shoes that fit comfortably. Most shoe retail stores offer foot-sizing and width-measuring equipment for customers.
A shoe width chart can be used to help people get a shoe that fits them better. Most women in the United States are a B on the chart, and most men are a D. If their shoes feel too tight or too loose, they can change to a different size, based on the chart.
