There is no standardization for shoe sizes, so a size 8 in one brand may be very different from a size 8 in another brand. European shoes are often sized according to the European system, which uses a number to indicate the length of the shoe in centimeters. To convert a European shoe size to U.S. women’s shoe size, you will need to know your foot length in inches and then refer to a conversion chart.

US to EU Size 8 Conversion

When shopping for shoes online, you may have noticed that European sizes are listed differently from US sizes. For example, a US size 8 shoe is a EU size 41. To further complicate matters, there are also differences between men’s and women’s sizing. In general, women’s shoes are about 1.5 sizes smaller than men’s shoes. So, if you’re a woman looking for a EU size 41 shoe, you would need to order a US size 9.5 shoe.

If you’re unsure of your US shoe size, you can always measure your foot and convert the measurement to a US size using the chart below. To measure your foot, simply place a ruler on the floor and place your foot on top of it. Make sure the ruler is flush against the wall and that you are standing up straight. Then, simply use the chart below to find your corresponding US shoe size

EU to UK Size 8 Conversion

A European size 8 is a UK size 8. The only difference is the labeling. In the UK, shoe sizes start at 0 and go up to 13. In Europe, shoe sizes start at 32 and go up to 45. So, a European size 8 is the same as a UK size 8.


There is no simple answer to this question since there is no standardization among European shoe brands. Some brands use UK sizes, while others use EU sizes. And, as you might expect, there is some overlap between the two. For example, a size 8 UK is equivalent to a size 41 EU.

If you’re trying to figure out what size to buy from a European brand, your best bet is to look at the brand’s size chart. However, even then you might want to order a few different sizes to try on since there can be significant variations in fit from one brand to another.
