FRANKiE4 - FIND THE PERFECT FIT
Frankie4 run true to size and are based on standard US/AU sizing. We recommend doing a quick measure before you buy.
To get started:
Stand on a level floor with your heel up against the wall or straight edge.
Place a ruler or measuring tape on the floor under your foot or alongside it, with your heel at 0cm.
Measure the length of your foot from your heel to the end of your longest toe (yes, even if it's your second toe).
Measure both feet and go with the length of your longest foot if they are different. If you are in between sizes, we recommend going for the larger size.
Check out the size charts below to find your size in US/AU (All Frankie4s are listed in US/AU sizes).
One of the things we love about Frankie4 is their Custom Fit pack. Every pair of shoes comes with two different pairs of footbeds and a set of forefoot cushions so you can construct the perfect fit for your feet.
HOW TO USE THE CUSTOM FOOTBEDS FOR YOUR WIDTH
If you have narrow feet, simply place a forecushion under the full-length footbed, toward the front of the shoe.
Your foot will feet more snug instantly!
If you have pretty standard width feet, stick with the full-length footbed.
The contouring will support your arch, cradle your heel and cushion your foot.
If you have wide feet, try the half-length footbed.
The contouring will still support your arch, cradle your heel and cushion your foot.
Extra Wide Fit or Orthotics
If you have extra wide feet or want to pop in your own orthotics, simply remove the footbeds.
The original Frankie4 footbed is the brainchild of a Podiatrist and Physiotherapist, who set out to design a shoe that alleviated and prevented heel and arch pain, plantar fasciitis and forefoot pain. The answer came in the creation of the Frankie4 Functional Footbed, which offers enhanced arch support, a heel cradle and forefoot cushioning.
TRYING ON YOUR FRANKIE4 FOR THE FIRST TIME
When you unbox your fresh new Frankie4s, we recommend trying them on on a clean dry surface to check that you have the correct size.
For enclosed shoes, you should have 1-2cm of space (or half a thumb to a thumb width) between your longest toe and the front of the shoe to allow for enough wiggle room and natural movement when you walk.
For sandals and slides, you can go by the same rule of thumb as for enclosed shoes, or you can run a little closer to the edge - just make sure that all your toes and your heel are nicely placed within the footbed and not hanging over the edge.
If you find you need a different size (and they are still brand spanking new), hit up our hassle free exchange process and we will swap them out for a new pair.
