Sizing and shoe fit
All models of VeloKicks utilise our founder's 15 years as a Podiatrist, with the uppers Podiatrically designed around with generous volume and wide fit, so half sizes are not offered. All models have enough volume to accommodate a cycling insert or custom cycling orthotic.
VeloKicks sizing is in-line, length wise, with many major brands. As a comparative tool, sizing is very close to being on par with Shimano, Bont, etc. We have noted there are cases where some Specialized riders would need the next size up in VeloKicks as Specialized's length, in some instances, is a little longer than ours. Additionally Giro shoes appear, across our shoes and other major brands, to run a little shorter in length. If you have a bit of space in Giro then it could be you may need to size down (emailing us with your measurements would be a safe bet).
Outside of that, if are typically a 44 in length in the major brands then that's what you will likely run with VeloKicks. We offer greater volume and width - length is approximately the same. If your measurement comes in on the edge of the next size we recommend sizing up.
Our range is now from 38 to 48 in all road models and 38 to 47 (48 coming soon) in our Lactic SPD.
Our latest sizing guide is below.
For Flow Knit, due to the reduced bulk that comes with a knit style upper - and the lower profile heel counter - there is a little more internal space in the Flow Knit compared to our regular shoes.
If you are at the upper end of a size range in the sizing chart we advise you to not size up. If you are at the lower end (have additional length) in your current shoes consider sizing down.
You can either - without socks on - take a trace outline with your foot on a piece of paper, weight bearing (read: fully standing). Ensuring pen is angled in. Measure the length and width
or follow the steps in this video using some business cards, the wall and a tape measure (again, weight bearing and without socks)
If in doubt - or if you're looking to double check sizing - contact us via email at firstname.lastname@example.org and we will be more than happy to take a look at your length and width and more closely analyse what size will be best for you.
