Precise Shoe Fitting with SHIMANO Brannock Device 1

The optimal shoe size is found by measuring the arch length, foot length and width.
This sizing information can then be cross-checked with the shoe size table, to find the shoe size and width that best matches the rider.

Prepare the device

Prepare the device by setting the width bar to its widest position and the arch length pointer slid all the way back.
This will allow the foot to be positioned easily into the device.

Measurement

Prepare the device by setting the width bar to its widest position and the arch length pointer slid all the way back.
This will allow the foot to be positioned easily into the device.

1 PREPARE FOR MEASUREMENT

1 PREPARE FOR MEASUREMENT

Remove footwear. Place right or left heel into matching heel cup. Stand with equal weight on both feet. Check to make sure heel is all the way back into the cup.

2 MEASURE THE ARCH LENGTH

2 MEASURE THE ARCH LENGTH

Find the ball joint of the foot. Slide the pointer and align it with ball joint. Read the arch length position aligned with the pointer.

3 MEASURE THE FOOT LENGTH

3 MEASURE THE FOOT LENGTH

Press the toes flat against the base of the device. Take the foot length measurement from the end of the longest toe.
*Note: The longest toe may not be the “Big” toe for some customers.

4 MEASURE THE FOOT WIDTH

4 MEASURE THE FOOT WIDTH

Slide the width bar to the edge of the foot. Read the foot width that corresponds to the measured foot length.

For example

*For example, if the length measurement was 42, this photo shows the corresponding width is D.

5 FIND THE CORRECT SHOE SIZE

With this information, first choose the foot size from the measured length. Next, compare the foot width with the shoe width. If the foot width is one step up from the shoe width, choose a shoe that is a half size larger. *For example, if the foot measurement was 43/E and the desired shoe has a width of D, recommend a size 43.5 shoe.
