For some folks, finding the right size can be a tough nut to crack. Here, let us take a quick look at what you can expect when it comes to Puma shoe sizes with this detailed Puma size chart.

 

The Fit

One of the questions that many people ask when it comes to buying Puma shoes is, “Do they fit wide feet?” While Puma shoes are known to run narrow, the brand offers many options that mold to the width of your feet.

 

If you have wide feet and want an easier way to choose Puma shoes, then why not go with Puma Roma, which also fits wide feet.

 

The Size

When it comes to shoe size, it’s easy to get confused and make the wrong choice. This is where you need to ask yourself two questions, “Should you size up or down?” and “Are they true to size?”

 

Puma follows a predictable path when it comes to shoe design. Puma shoes are almost always designed to be true to size, albeit a bit smaller. However, as a rule of thumb, it is advised that you should always try to size up when purchasing Puma shoes. This should be at least half a size and one full size.

 

Puma vs. Nike

Whenever the word “rivalries” comes to mind, one imagines the legendary Ford vs. Ferrari, Frazier vs. Ali, Batman v. Superman (forget that last one). And the footwear niche has its fair share of rivalries. While the owners of Puma and Nike shrug off any hints of a rivalry, fans of the brand beg to differ. It is not uncommon for fans of both brands to nitpick mistakes in any new arrival of the competitors. To be fair, when it comes to fit, style and durability, both brands have their strong points.

 

Puma is the fastest growing brand in the world, and for good reason. The brand regularly offers discounts and special promotions to attract new customers (sorry, Nike). On the other hand, Nike is notorious for its hefty price tag and zero discounts. Puma has also introduced many shoe designs and technologies that make their shoes light and comfy while still having a lot to offer in terms of style.

 

When it comes to sizes, both Puma and Nike are neck and neck and are normally half a size smaller than true to size. Apart from that, the shoe design of both brands runs narrow. On the bright side, if you are used to size 7 Nikes, then you will usually be able to buy the same size Pumas as well.

 

Puma vs. Adidas

 

When it comes to footwear, some folks like Adidas, others go with Puma, but both groups are oblivious to the rivalry between the two footwear giants. For those of you who do not know, Both Puma and Adidas were founded by two Germans who also happen to be brothers. After a quarrel in 1948, Rudolf Dassler founded Puma, while Adolf Dassler founded Adidas.

 

In fact, the rivalry of these two brothers was so bitter that not only has it divided the small town of Herzogenaurach, where both companies were founded, but when the two brothers died, they were buried at opposite sides of the town’s cemetery. While Adidas clearly dominates in terms of marketing and employees, Puma is no slouch.

 

When it comes to the fit, Pumas tend to run smaller than true to size as compared to Adidas, which are true to size. For those making the switch from a pair of Adidas to Puma, it is recommended to always size up at least half a size depending on the model of the shoe you are getting. To make it easier, both brands offer detailed charts that make it easy to compare.

 

 

General guidelines for sizing

 

 

Puma offers footwear for both men and women of all ages. Half sizes are also available. Since the size chart shows heel-to-toe measurements in US, UK, EU and JP sizes, finding the perfect fit should be relatively easy. The best way to measure your feet to get an accurate fit is by setting a piece of paper on the ground and drawing around your foot as you stand on it. Also, mark the end of the longest toe (which is not always the big toe) to get a comfy fit.

 

This method makes it easier to measure your feet in inches. Some additional tips when it comes to finding the right fit are – always consider additional space if you wear socks, and try to get someone else to draw around your foot. If you try to do it yourself, it might be difficult if you are standing straight.
