How to measure and draw round your feet

How to Draw round your feet

STEP 1

You will need: Two sheets of thin A4 paper (one for each foot), a sharp pencil, a dressmakers tape measure (measurements must be in millimeters), and a helper! Wear the socks you intend to wear with your new shoes.

STEP 2

Stand naturally with one foot on each piece of paper on a hard surface.

STEP 3

Ask your helper to draw round both feet using a sharp pencil. KEEP THE PENCIL UPRIGHT AT ALL TIMES, especially at the heel.

STEP 4

Lift your toes up off the paper and ask your helper to slip the tape measure under each foot in turn to make a measurement around your feet.

STEP 5

The measurement should be in millimetres, all the way around the foot at the widest part (from the big toe joint to the protruding joint behind the little toe joint). Before removing the tape, mark its position and the dimension in mm on the foot drawings.

STEP 6

Your finished drawings/profiles should look similar to this (see illustration 6).
Please add your name and contact number to the sheets, state your usual shoe size, and let us know about any difficulties you usually have when buying shoes, e.g. narrow heels.
Please say if you have had Guat Shoes before, as you will be on file.
Post the drawings to Guat Shoes, 221 School road, Sheffield S10, 1GN
