Fit & Sizing

Men's and Women's Running Shoes

We generally recommend that you order your Brooks running shoes 1/2 size to one size larger than normal dress shoes. For men's footwear, "D'" is the default width when no width is otherwise specified. For women's footwear, "B" is the default width.

Whenever possible, it is best to visit your local running and walking footwear store for a proper fitting and guidance to help you find just right Brooks shoe for your foot and gait.

Kids' Running Shoes

Children's shoes are sized in two waves. The first wave starts at size 27 for prewalking tots and extends to size 31.5 (measuring 19,5 cm from heel to toe.) The second wave again starts at size 32 (at just under 20,5 from heel to toe), and extends through adult sizes.

Our Kids' PureFlow, with sizes 27-31,5, 32-40, starts in the first size wave and then continues into the second wave. The rough age range for this shoe begins around 3 years old.

Our Kids' Adrenaline™ GTS, offered in sizes 32-40, fits the second (larger) wave of children's shoe sizes. This range would normally accommodate children aged six years and older.
