Nike Size Chart
The Nike Size Chart above shows you what size you should purchase depending on what your foot size is.
Using the above size chart, you can decide what size you are in CMs to your US or UK sizing when purchasing Nike sneakers.
When purchasing your sneakers, it’s important to ensure that you have looked at this size chart to make sure you’re purchasing the correct size.
We do not offer exchanges or refunds so make sure the Nike sneakers you buy is the correct size.
How Do Nike Sneakers Fit? Are Nike Sneakers True-To-Size?
Nike sneakers generally fit uniformly as a whole. This means Nike sneakers are true to size.
The best purchase would be to buy the sneaker size you normally are with any other Nikes. If you are a US Mens 10 in any Nike Sneakers or Air Jordans, you will be a US Mens 10 in any Nike Sneakers.
The only exception is that people sometimes recommend that you should go half a size down for Nike Air Force 1s. This is an optional preference and depends on how tight you want the sneakers around you feet.
The answer is just follow your True-To-Size size.
Nike Mens To Womens Size Conversion
Many people commonly struggle when converting US Mens Nike Sizing to US Womens Nike Sizing.
The simple answer is that US Mens conversion is usually 1.5 size difference from the US Womens sizing. This is apparent on any Nike sneaker box. For example, a US Mens 7 would say that it’s a US Womens 8.5.
However, when you look at the Womens Nike size label, a US Womens 8 sometimes would equal to a US Mens 7 when converting to CMs.
Our recommendation is that if you’re buying a pair of Nike Sneakers in US Mens sizing, we would go 1.5 size up from your US Womens Size.
Inversely, if you’re looking to buy a pair in US Womens sizing and you normally would purchase US Mens sizing, we would go down 1 size from that US Womens size.
Our customers oftentimes are looking to buy sneakers that only come in Womens sizing, such as the Nike Dunk Low (W), but they normally wear US Mens.
In this scenario, we would recommend you purchase a US Womens 9 or 9.5 if you are a US Mens 8 – depending on how snug you want the fit.
On the other hand, sometimes those who normally wear US Womens Nike Sneakers are looking for Nike sneakers only available in US Mens sizing.
If you normally wear a US Womens 7, we would recommend you purchase a US Mens 6 or a US Mens 5.5 if you want a more snug fit.
Both will work for you, but you need to know how snug or loose you generally like your sneakers.
Do Nike Dunks Fit The Same As Nike Air Force 1s or Nike Air Max Plus TNs? How Does Sizing Work For Different Nike Sneaker Silhouettes?
The great thing about Nikes is that the fit is the same, no matter if you’re wearing Nike Dunks, Nike Air Force 1s or even Nike Air Max Plus TNs.
Nike sneakers are generally consistent across all cuts – whether it is low cut, or high cut silhouettes.
Nike Sneakers are also the same size as Jordan sneakers, so you can cross shop against these brands with your sizing and fit as well.
If you’re a certain size for Nike Dunks for example, you should be able to purchase the same size for Nike Air Max Plus Tns.
Regardless of which Nike sneaker silhouette you purchase, the sizing will be the same as the size chart above.
As mentioned above, there are some Nike sneakers like the Air Force 1s which require you to go half a size down. In the rare instances like this, we do recommend it, however you still will have no problem if you go true-to-size.
How Do I Convert US Womens To Youth / Grade School (GS) Sizes?
If you have smaller feet, you might be lucky enough to be able to fit into Youth or Grade School sized Nikes.
This would be awesome for you, since Youth / Grade School size sneakers are generally cheaper than Womens or Mens Nike variants.
When purchasing Youth sneakers, sizing for Nike follow the size chart above. If you’re a US Womens 6, we would recommend you purchase Nike Size 5Y.
US Womens sizing to Youth Nike sizing is just ‘1 size down’, similar to US Mens and US Womens.
Comparing Jordan Sizing vs. Nike Sizing?
The short answer is that Jordan and Nike sizing is the same.
Both brands are manufactured by Nike and so the sizing for both are identical. If you know your sizing for Jordan, then that is the size you go for Nike and vice versa.
There are certain exceptions, but typically the size you wear for Nike will be the size you wear for Jordans.
We hope this helped clear up any confusion when it comes to picking the correct size for your Nike sneakers.
Regardless of whether you’re looking to cop a pair of Nike Dunks or Nike TNs, the sizing will remain the same.
Each person’s feet is uniquely their own, so you need to also play it by ear! If you feel as though your feet can be wider and you find your current size already too small, always go half a size up.
