Measurements & Ordering The Right Size

Shoe sizes vary by style—they run long, short, wide or narrow. We test fit size 8.5 shoes, and sometimes recommend ordering a larger or smaller size. Look for this information on any product page. (e.g. Fit: Runs long, buy a half size down.)
If one foot is larger than the other, always fit the larger foot.

The letters "4A", "3A", “2A”, "B”, or "C" below the sizes refer to the width of the shoe. The following chart explains the various widths Arthur Beren carries:

Women's
4A or SS = Extra Narrow
2A or N = Narrow
B or M = Medium (Standard)
C or W = Wide

Fitting Tips

Get sized regularly by a professional, preferably using a Brannock device. It is important to measure the width of the foot and to take into consideration the type of arch you have.

Wear the right socks. Consider your plans and activities and wear the most breathable and absorbent socks or stockings for the occasion with the appropriate footwear. If going bare, keep clean and dry.

Check the construction. Look at the sole and heel of the shoe to see what kind of terrain the shoe is meant to handle. Also look inside to assess the lining and upper elements of the shoe, checking to see how they will address your needs. A leather lined shoe will generally last longer than one without lining, though the unlined shoe may be lighter and more appreciated in warmer climates.

Walk around. When trying on a new pair of shoes, always try on both pair and walk around a bit - always on a clean indoor surface of course. Flex your arch and toes to see if the shoes feel good while you move about. Try shoes on in the afternoon or evening. Feet swell to their largest as the day progresses, so you will get a better reading of your true size once your feet have warmed up to the day.

Some Specifics

Allow some time to break in a great pair of leather shoes--the best ones are a little tight in the beginning. By doing it right you’ll have shoes that are molded to your feet perfectly. See the How To Care tab for advice on proper shoe maintenance.

If the upper of the shoe is made of elastic or an elastic-blend fabric the shoe should fit snugly and need no breaking in. Shoes should never squeeze or cramp your toes.

If your shoes are slightly too loose in the in-step, a toe pad can be added to create a better fit, preventing any unnecessary friction.

For more heel and arch support or extra cushioning, consider custom fitted orthotic inserts, or even some gel inserts to target the problem.

Rafael Sanchez

A portrait painter, designer, museum filling world traveler, Rafael Sanchez has been making his own line of bags, by hand, for 38 years. He utilizes his time spent in high-end wall paper design in Asia to craft his own leather texture plates. The tanneries he uses manufacturer soft calf and lamb skin leathers for him exclusively for 6 months before they are released to the public. His leathers are so fine they are usually chosen by garment makers for their lively and refined feel. Mr. Sanchez himself uses them to cover structured purses, no two the same.

His pieces are inspired and by travel and each is as unique as the story behind its materials. Mr. Sanchez adorns his work with pieces of jade, cinebar, bone and other precious natural materials he has found over the years, often appropriated from antique jewelry and not uncommonly found from tomb excavations. Each bag comes with the artist's near mystical touch and a balance of history and modernity. The cords and tassels he uses are custom-made to his specification by artists in New York who employ traditional techniques from the Chinese Ching Dynasty. Each bag is perfectly lined in grosgrain for a clean and durable finish.

To wear a Sanchez bag is to bring the museum with you to dinner, to hold a piece of history, of expression, of passion for art. Embody the luxury.
