SIZING

We offer footwear in STANDARD and CUSTOM sizes

Standard:   In stock–order from our shopping cart…
We make our footwear in Standard UNISEX Sizes 4-15 (whole sizes only)

Men typically wear ONE SIZE LARGER than their Standard Street Size in our footwear.
Women typically wear the SAME SIZE as their standard shoe size.

Example:

Mens US Size 10 = Nativearth Size 11

Mens US Size 10½ = Nativearth Size 12

Womens US Size 10 = Nativearth Size 10

Womens US Size 10½ = Nativearth Size 11

If you are unsure of your size, or have trouble fitting into standard sized shoes, measure the overall length and width (at widest point) of your foot, and compare it to our sizing chart

Our Nativearth shoes are unisex sized.  You can get the Mary Rose or any Nativearth shoe in a standard size 5 through 15 or custom. Nativearth sizing increases one or two sizes up for Men.  Street size 10 = NE 11, Street size 10 1/2= NE 12.  This is almost always the case for feet that are medium width.  Women sizes stay the same as street sizes, 1/2 sizes go up one.

In any case whether you want standard or custom sizing, give us information regarding your feet.  What size and width shoes you normally purchase? Do you wear a longer size due to the width of your feet?  Do you have specific problems such as bunions, plantar fasciitis, knee stress, low or high arches or do you wear an orthotic?

If your feet are wide and high at the arch or narrow at the heel then you should consider custom sizing.   Stand on a ruler, have a friend record the length and width of both feet, longest and widest parts.  With these simple measurements we will determine your Nativearth size.

For Custom patterns follow the instructions on the web site and have a friend trace and measure your feet.  We will then make a paper pattern and hand cut all the pieces of your shoes.  It’s important that your are assisted in this process as you will throw off the measurement if you bend to do it yourself.

Lastly, please do not fax a tracing to us as it may become distorted.  A PDF or Jpeg file is fine.

We sincerely appreciate your order,

If possible, we recommend being fitted in our shop or at one of our events.

Custom:
For our customers who do not fit well into our standard sizes, we specialize in building custom footwear built to the shape and needs of your feet.

Your feet morphology and support are incorporated in your pattern and design. Ask for any special needs. We make arch supports and lifts as required.

When ordering footwear, please give your Brannock or street shoe measurement and, if possible, your width and length of your street shoe size. We prefer an actual foot tracing made by outlining on a piece of paper. Trace around both feet with a vertically held pencil or thin ballpoint pen. Include the arch at 45 degrees. Please include measurements in inches or centimeters for ball, instep, heel and leg.

Fitting Nativearth Footwear

Moccasins: Properly fit moccasins should be very snug at first, with very little toe room. The foot will stretch the soft leather into its shape. The break-in period can vary from hours to a couple of days. Try wearing your mocs without the sheepskin insoles until the leather stretches, then replace the insoles. Keep your mocs clean with saddle soap, wipe dry and apply light oil or hand cream.

Sandals: Sandals should seem a little short with your longest toe coming just past the stitching. That’s because the heel counters have not yet shaped to your heels. Pull forward on the heel counter while nesting your heel back into the heel pocket, The sandal will start stretching at this point, the foot moves back up to 1/4″ or more. Balanced tension on the lacing and proper maintenance will keep your sandals fitting and workingwell for a long time.

Boots: As in putting on moccasins, the toes slide into the shoe and you push your foot forward into the front. Grab the back pull tab and slide your heel down . Make sure the inside flaps are tucked in flat, then adust the closures to a comfortable level. The boots should have minimal room beyond the toes, because the heel will stretch back a bit and the front will form to the shape of your foot.
