All Sizes in Inches Unless Otherwise Stated

how to measure

finding your shoe size takes just 3 steps.

  1. Stand with one bare foot on a piece of paper.
  2. Mark the paper at the back of your heel bone & at the end of your longest toe.
  3. Measure the distance between these two points in a straight line, & repeat the same steps for the other foot.

If one foot is longer, use the larger measurement to find your shoe size by referencing the size chart above. If your measurement is in between sizes & the shoes don’t come in half sizes, please round up to the next size.

Remember, this chart can only approximate your true shoe size. Finding a shoe that fits also depends on brand, style and individual. To find the best fit, we recommend visiting a Target store to try on different shoe sizes & styles.

I don't usually write reviews, but I've had these since September and walked them into the ground. They're easily the most comfortable shoes I own. They do run the slightest bit big, but I think that's what adds to the comfort. I do wish they brought back the blue and black colors

These are the most comfortable shoes I own. I am a teacher on my feet all day and they are sooooo comfortable all day and cute too. They are not heavy. If you can sometimes wear 2 sizes, size down. I’ve worn them all year and now I’m buying another pair for next year!

These tennis shoes are true to size. They fit comfortably and easy to glide your feet into. I Love these tennis shoes! Not your typical tennis shoes, these shoes can dress up or down. I wish they had more color options as I’d be ordering another pair. I like the “tweed” look and the speckles on the rubber side of the shoes. These are lace up shoes. Adorable, I can’t say enough about the quality and durability of these shoes. I’ve taken a few pictures to show them off. Outstanding value.

I’ve never written a review but I love these shoes so much that I’m hoping this review will help bring more colors back in stock. I wore these shoes for the first time at a huge conference (walking over five miles in six hours) with no pain! Seriously the best shoes I’ve ever worn!!

AFM - 2 months ago, Verified purchaser
Shoes are absolutely adorable but quickly became uncomfortable. Purchased these shoes for a weekend golf tournament, by the third hour of walking/standing the bottoms of my feet were screaming. Still love the shoes but don’t recommend if you’re planning to be on your feet for an extended period of time.
