The North Face Shoes, Boots & Footwear Size Chart, Guide & Fit Advice

Mondo Sizes
The North Face footwear uses the Mondo sizing system, where each whole size is equivalent to exactly 1cm in length.  To ensure the best fit we recommend:

    ●   If you have owned The North Face before, buy the same again; their sizing has not changed.

    ●  Shop using Mondo, UK or US sizes.

    ●  Follow our "How to Measure Your Mondo Size" advice and video lower down this page.   

UK and US Sizes
Correct as shown below.  True to size - will fit straight out of the box.

EU Sizes
We recommend you do not shop using EU sizes because The North Face have made some mistakes!  There is no difference between men's and women's sizes in Europe. If you prefer to shop using EU sizes, please refer to the  "Absolute" column which show the correct size conversions.  

On Our Website.....
On our website we use THe North Face 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.
