    Question What's The Difference Between Athletic Shoe and Dress Shoe Sizes? REPS

    Hey,
    I am getting some custom boots made, and under where it says "Shoe Size", it says:

    "Don’t rely on your athletic shoe size. We find that a person's dress shoe size can be up to 2 sizes different than an ahtletic shoe. Your foot should be snug in the boot, not swimming around. Improper fitting can cause blitters, tripping and improper wear on the boot. If you are unsure of your men's dress shoe size, go to any shoe store and ask to be measured on a Brannac Device."

    I wear a size 12-12.5 shoe, but I was always under the impression that basketball shoe sizes and dress shoe sizes were the same.

    Are dress shoes normally the same, larger, or smaller than basketball shoes?

    Reps to anyone who helps out.

    Thanks!!!

    I'd say dress shoes are smaller because usually athlethic shoes are a little lose and dress shoes are tight to your foot

    Really all depends on the company. Different companies have different values for sizes. Like I wear a size 9.5 for Adidas but yet I wear size 11 for my Dakota's. My Work Force boots are size 12. Varies man.

    Best recommendation is go to a show store and use one of those metal foot measuring devices you do yourself. For me, I usaually wear 11 in dress and 11.5 in athletic shoes.

    You're a size 15, and you're 15 years old?

    Damn.....

    Thanks for all of the help guys! I think I'll go with the 12's, because I normally wear a 12.5 in athletic shoes.

    If you have any dress shoes (If they aren't the same size as your regular shoes) could you give me the size of them?

    Hey man, if your getting custom shoes made, you really should have a better idea of what your size is. I wear size 14 athletics, but size 12 boots. If you can, I'd at least measure your foot with one of those scales at a dept. store and send them the measurements. Don't want to spend all that $$$ and have poor fitting shoes.

    Well, I always measure my feet with that scale when I go to buy shoes, and the last reading I got from the scale was a 12, which is the size my BBall shoes are.

    I probably should, but if I order tonight, I get 15% off, so I kind of want to take advantage of that deal.
