Superfeet sizing in a 25.5

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 

 

I got a question about superfeet sizing. I understand they come in a range of sizes where one size is C (5.5-7) and the next up is D (7.5-9).  With a 25.5 mondo boot, which size should I be buying?

 

25.5 falls into the range of 7-7.5 so that falls right in the middle of the two sizes so I'm not sure which one to get. Anyone here wear 25.5 and use superfeet? What size do you use?

depends if you have a long arch (bigger size) or a smaller/shorter arch (smaller size)

 

can you try them on and see what feels better?

Thanks for the advice, I wasn't aware that the sizing corresponded to the location of the arch and not the length of the actual footbed. I need to try it on in store I guess.

The sizing applies to the actual foot size.  However, in order to properly fit them they should be sized to your arch length and height and then trimmed to length.  Be aware that often Superfeet trim to fits have the arch position quite far back for many people and other models will fit better.

the reason that the arch feels quite far back is because that is where the support should be, directly under the sustentaculum tali which is part of the heel bone which sticks out a bit to the side it is located almost below the medial ankle bone, supporting this area allows the foot to be supported whilst allowign the arch to flex without needing a big wedge of material built under it

 

on the sizing there are 3 protocols in place,

 

1 physical length, it needs to be long enough for your foot

2 heel cup width the heel wants to sit in the cup snuggly and not hang over the endges

3 arch length, this can be adjusted by cutting the plastic cap back a little so that it sits behind the metatasal heads rather than under them
