Columbia Sandals, Shoes, Boots & Footwear Size Chart, Guide & Advice

US Sizes
Columbia footwear is manufactured using US sizes.  We recommend:
    ●  If you've owned Columbia footwear before, simply order the same again, their sizing has not chnaged.
    ●  Shop using US sizes - which provide a true fit right out of the box.

UK Sizes
Columbia's UK sizes have been accurately converted from the US so you can also also shop using your normal UK shoe size.

EU Sizes
Columbia's 'translation' to EU sizes is unreliable. There is no difference between men's and women's EU sizes but, according to the data in the Columbia table below, there is!  The correct EU size conversions are shown in our "Absolute" column.  So, if you want an EU 44, buy a US 10.5 = UK 9.5

Mondo Sizes
Columbia's conversions to Mondo sizes are almost correct but mondopoint sizes are always to the nearest 5mm. The correct Mondo size conversions are shown in our "Absolute" column.  So, if you want an Mondo 26, buy a US Men's 8 = UK 7.

On Our Website.....
On our website we use Columbia sizes (even though they are not always correct) because these are what appear on the shoe boxes and the shoes themselves.

How to Measure Your Mondo Size

The Mondopoint size of a shoe is the length of the shoe's insole measured in cm. To work out your size, the best way is to look it up on a pair shoes which fit you well or to measure the length of the insole on your best fitting pair of shoes. Remove the insole and measure, using a steal measuring tape, from the extreme tip of the toe to the extreme tip of the heel. The measurement will ALWAYS be exact to the nearest 0.5cm. You will never get 30.2 or 28.8; it will always be 30.0 exactly. This is your mondo shoe or boot size. Checkout this video to have Adam explain it all in plain English.  He is using a snowboard boot but the same principle applies to all footwear.
