Fitting

If you are located in, or planning to visit the GTA area we can arrange a one-on-one fitting from our home in Etobicoke. Call or email us.

If you are located outside the GTA area we offer several options to ensure you find your perfect fit.

 

a) Begin by searching inside several pairs of shoes that you own for your your European size. It is often listed alongside your US size inside the label.
b) Visit a fine shoe store and have your foot properly sized using a Brannock Device (as seen on the left). A guide for properly measuring your foot using the Brannock device can be seen here. Be sure to have your width measured and provide high resolution images of your feet. Many national shoe brands and retailers such as Sport Check have the device in each of their stores.
c) Visit a shoe store that sells European sized shoes such as Aldo and try on several pairs of shoes to determine your fit.

 

For the cost of shipping Canada Post Expedited (usually between $20-$30 each way + a deposit) we will ship several pairs of shoes to your door. You may keep a pair and return the others or return all of them if you are choosing a custom colour order. Shipping usually takes 3-4 Days Ontario and 7-10 days for the rest of Canada.

 

We frequently travel across the country and hold regional fitting days. To see if we are holding a fitting day near you, follow us on Instagram or Facebook @tapshoescanada

 
 

  • Fitting shoes is an ‘art form’ (some say – ‘religion’).
  • It is very hard to fit shoes (any shoes) over the internet, and determine a correct size.
  • Feet change while sitting (shorter), standing (longer), before or after dancing, and in cold, hot, dry or moist weather.
  • Sizes are ‘relative’ and not ‘absolute’,and change from one manufacturer to another.
  • Miller & Ben Tap Shoes’ sizes span from European size 34 to European size 50, and in half size denominations.
  • The difference between half sizes is 3.33 mm (about 1/8 Inch).
  • In the USA – order shoes half a size smaller then your street shoes.
  • In European scale – order your street shoe size.
  • Be aware of the fact that these shoes stretch during regular use, due to the soft composition of the leather.
  • When ordering high heel shoes, such as CJ, NSG, TS & LC, order ‘Regular’ if you normally wear ‘Wide’, and ‘Narrow’ if you normally wear ‘Regular’
