Women's shoes: Fitting and shapes
Standard shape S (formerly marked as 13)
It is the most common shape, with a comfortable sole fitting most foot types, particularly an egyptian-shaped foot, where the big toe is longer than the others.
Narrow shape N (formerly marked as 11)
The shoe sole is narrow and with a triangular shape and fits slim and thin feet. Particularly suitable to a greek-shaped foot, where the second toe is longer than the others. Same length as the standard shape, but with reduced volume.
Wide shape W (formerly marked as 15)
Suitable to particularly wide and square-shaped feet. The upper is mounted on the same sole as the standard but around a bigger last*, increasing the shoe volume.
Flat shape F
Recommended to those who have slim feet with a low bridge height, but not particularly narrow in width and with a rounded rather than a triangular shape. Although the shape of the sole is the same as the standard, shoes have a reduced volume in the upper for a snugger fit.
*The last is the chalk foot around which a shoe is mounted.
