The ideal size of your Paleos®ULTRA!

We’ll help you to find the perfect size for your ULTRAs!

If you want to be sure, about the size of your ULTRAs! You will want to be certain about the size of your ULTRAs. The ULTRAs are made of flexible stainless steel mesh, so in contrast to conventional shoes, your feet will specify the shape of the shoe rather than the other way around. One size can fit a variety of foot shapes and sizes, thus the same ULTRA size can fit a long narrow foot or a shorter wide foot. Using the instructions below, please provide us with the dimensions of your feet and we’ll find the perfect ULTRAs for you.

The feet need freedom of movement! Even when you will not use this service, always order ULTRA one size up! The following table shows the default ratio of ULTRAs regarding size (foot length) to ball circumference (girth forefoot). If your measurements* greatly differ from these values, or you sometimes have problems to find shoes that fit, please do not hesitate and send a tracing of your feet. You even can add some fotos if you want.

* Do this, however, after ordering your ULTRAs at the Online-Shop, because we then also know all additional parameters. Even the type of savers (thickness) and the size of the "Multi-Paws" (flexibility) plays a role for an exact recommendation.

Tip: The circumference of the forefoot area can easily be measured by means of an  inelastic tape or yarn, which you subsequently compare to a ruler!


Step on a piece of paper with either foot

1 Place your foot on the sheet
Step on a piece of paper with either foot. For example, if the format is an A4 size and you have the shoe size 44 you can also position your foot diagonally onto the sheet. Just make sure that your tracing completely fits in the format. Lean forward and put a bit of pressure on your foot so it flattens a bit and you stand more stable.




 

Trace the outline around your foot

2. Trace the outline around your foot
Now, Using a dark colored pen or pencil (but not a marker), trace the outline of your foot onto the paper. Try to hold the pen as vertically as possible, and be sure to ask someone for help if you are having trouble. By holding the pen vertically, you’re making a trace that’s slightly bigger than your foot, and that’s exactly what is needed. Note that if you have feet of slightly different sizes or shapes, you should complete this process for each foot so that we can get you a correct, custom fit.



 

Add a scale indicator

3. Add a scale indicator (in cm oder inch)
If you fax or scan your tracing, it may get resized. Especially when you take a picture of the sheet it with your camera or smartphone the size ratio is lost. For us to adjust for that, we need a scale indicator. With a ruler, draw a straight horizontal an vertiacal next to your tracing. Then mark the distances shown in the graph (horizontally 127 mm / 5 inch - vertically 254 mm / 10 inch).
