How Do I Get The Right Size Boxing Shoes
This is a guide for women and men on how to size boxing shoes.
*We called or emailed every major brand and asked them directly how to size
So you are ready to get your next pair of boxing shoes but are not really sure what size you should get? You may hear some people say go up one size, or down a size. There are so many opinions out there who is to know who to listen to? The answer really depends on the brand of shoe and the person buying them. Let us explain a little more about this.
First thing to do is to measure your foot. Our feet often swell during the day due to heat and activity. For the best fit, measure your feet at the end of the day.
Sizing by Brand: Every brand is not created equal. So we decided to call all the name brands and get the true answers from the horses mouth. They went as far as to measure the shoes while on the phone. Thanks Cleto Reyes, cool customer service!
Note: “True to size” means if your everyday shoe is a size 8, then you would buy a size 8 in that boxing shoe .
