GETTING MEASUREDBrannock Devices have been the shoe fitting standard for more than 70 years and are still the best way for determining foot length, width and arch length. But the Brannock Device is ideally just one component in a proper shoe fitting.
Arch Length (heel-to-ball measurement)
Where arch length and heel-to-toe length differ, you generally want to take the bigger of the two sizes. This is to ensure that the ball of your foot aligns properly with the flex point of the shoe.
Things to know before going to a fitting:
- Your feet may swell over the course of the day, so you should always get measured towards the end of the day.
- Wear an appropriate sock. If you’re getting fit for golf shoes, you should bring along the socks you usually wear on the course. Why pair a performance sock with a performance golf shoe?
- Sit down when being fit, with your leg at a 45 degree angle. Standing will create downward pressure, spreading out your feet and toes. An accurate fit is “weightless”.
- Your size will change over the course of your life. It is not uncommon for feet to flatten and widen as we age.
- Don’t look at the size on the box, let your feet tell your brain how they feel.
