Introducing Sizeadvisor.com: Find shoes that fit - Page 2

post #16 of 90
You are in luck - I'm a 41.5 and I keep notes on the shoes I have tried on. I will make sure and post my stuff to your site sometime over the weekend.

I've got another idea... not sure how this'll work. But basically have some sort of printout of a foot that someone can step onto and take measurements off of, then they click which shoes fit them. That way someone else might be able to just enter their measurements and it'll spit out which shoes should fit them based on what everyone else entered. meaning I don't have to only enter one shoe to get another shoe that'll work, I could just enter measurements.

This might just work (which would be great), but you do need very precise, illustrated instructions on how to measure. Then you could ask the shoe manufacturers for similar measurements of their lasts (including info on how they are graded by size etc.)

Cool! Note that invites are send out by mail when Sizeadvisor opens. This may take another week or two.

This is how it works, basically. Sorry if I didn't make this clear. Expressed differently: Your ratings are used to calculate recommendations for your 'neighbors' (people with feet similar to yours). Your neighbors' ratings are used to calculate recommendations for you. You don't need to make a single rating to get recommendations. But... if you have no neighbors or they didn't provide any ratings, there's no recommendation for you.

Given enought data, there's no need for this. But it might be useful for less known manufacturers to provide fitting information to customers, yes.

And if you're around US 8.5 / UK 7.5 / EU 41.5 that would be really amazing!

Of course, any feedback is welcome. If you have questions, please just ask.
Claus,

That's a pretty nifty idea you got there. I'm actually between UK 7.5 and UK 8, so I think I could help.

Great Idea Claus. Would help me from searching threads after threads about shoe sizes. :P
Count me in to help!

Thanks, to both of you!

Again, I still need a few more days before invitations are sent out but I'm already trying to clean things up a bit.

Short info: I've sent out the invitations today.

If you didn't get an e-mail although you've registered, check your spam folder. If it's not there, sent me a PM here or use the contact form. The same holds if you have problems to register.

For posting problems, questions, or feature requests, I've set up a small feedback forum at Sizeadvisor. The first bug was already fixed.

If you're interested in the larger end of the scale UK 11 - 11.5 drop me a PM.

Also, people have different standards for what counts as a well-fitting shoe. Some people like roomy shoes, others like a tighter fit.

Thanks, will do.

@radicaldog: I thought about this as well and I believe there's a way to take such preferences into account, one day.

Super Idee! Viel Erfolg damit! Ich kann mir locker ein start up vorstellen, wenn die Hersteller Werbung bei dir schalten. Bin btw 41,5 EU, habe aber noch nicht so viel Erfahrung mit den verschiedenen Schuhen, leider!

Short status update: Everything seems to run fine so far, apart from some smaller bugs. An annoying one was that frontpage showed the oldest ratings, instead of the latest. This is fixed now. As one can see, we're slowly building up speed. There're already ratings for (UK) 6.5 and (US) 9.5 sizes. I figure these guys probably would like others who wear similar sizes to join the site. So I post a public invitation code here as a test. If you consider yourself a (UK) 6.5 or a (US) 9.5, and you're willing to share your fitting experience with your fellows, please use megan as an invitation code. It works 25 times and expires Friday. Contact me if you run into problems.

I added my measurements - had no idea just how differently size my two feet were!


Would really like to see more shoe brands listed, I don't own any in the list and have only tried a single shoe that is listed. How about adding the popular brands carried by NM, Saks, etc?

Here are brands I have good fitment notes on:

Gucci, Prada, Tod's, Ferragamo, DJ Pliner, Versace, Dolce & Gabbana, Too Boot and about a half dozen others (LV, Bally, etc).

Hey, thanks for participating!

Concerning your suggestion: I have no information about the lasts these brands use. I guess, most buyers have no information either. (Well, except Ferragamo and Bally, maybe.)

If it turns out that people find all the stuff about lasts too complicated, I'll drop that. Then, I can support all of these. And also the more popular sneaker brands.

Right now, I'd like to try with last information. But if it turns out you are right, I'll add these brands and many more.
