Everyone at some point has had a big problem with the size when going to buy sneakers. Why do we never hit on it? Those problems that should not exist in something that seems so simple but at the moment of truth is not so

It’s amazing, but buying sneakers can complicate our lives a good time. It is frustrating to have to return the shoe that you bought online because it did not carve the same as the last time. Has it happened to you already? Do not you find it strange that you have to review your old sneakers over and over again to know what size you are and still fail to choose it? In addition, all these sizing systems, the American, the British, the European, the Japanese, the Latin American.

To have an example of what this mess means. The size 41 that is very common in Spain is a 7 in the UK, but an 8 in the United States. Oh! As if that were not enough, the size for men and women is different in the latter. Who invented this? Well, these are some equivalences of sizes, but what if we look for a size 42 in Spain? It turns out that it only goes up half a point in each of the others since it would be 7.5 in the UK and 8.5 in the United States. This is just an example because there are many more measurements. Size 42 would be a 26.5 in Japan or a 7 in Mexico. Does your head hurt with so many numbers? Well, it seems to us that it should not be so complicated to buy sneakers.
