  • Entire length is approx 45-46"
    (measure the entire length of a pair of your own dress pants if you're not sure these will fit)

So now you can look like you're wearing sneakers without the knee-injuring potential that dancing on rubber soles carries.

SIZING:

We find that these run true to size. So order your usual men's dress shoe size. If you're a half size it's best to wear a half size larger than usual (7.5 fits an 8, 11.5 fits a 12, etc.).

These come in whole sizes and, because they're converted from European sizing, are also made in a few half sizes - check the dropdown to see what half sizes are available.

Also, because they're converted from European sizes, the men's version of this shoe is really just an extension of the women's sizes and vice versa. So if you wear men's size 7 (but never a 7.5) you might like the fit of the Women's 8.
