The Olimpico Model is true to US size!
The Risto Olimpico are true to size. Order your normal size. For simplicity, we list all Olimpico's in US Men's sizing. For example, if you are a women's size 7, you will probably be a men's 6. The Olimpico's run a bit wider than our last model run.
Measure your bare foot from heel
To get the correct Olimpico size, just match the length of your foot up to the closest size- DO NOT add a 1/2 inch for extra space. For example, if your foot is 10 inches long, then order a size 7.
to toe. Add 1 centimeter OR a ˝ inch to your measurement. Look for the closest number to this in the "Interior Shoe Length" columns of the Sizing Chart. Scroll across to the left to see what the Risto Size is at that measurement. (If you fall between two sizes it is usually best to round up and select the larger size.)
In other words, you want to order a shoe that is a centimeter or half inch longer than your bare foot.
What if my foot falls between 2 sizes?
If you fall between two sizes, it is usually best to round-up. Do NOT leave less than .25 inches of space difference between the length of your foot and the shoe interior length.
Example foot measurement: Your foot measures 10 inches from heel to toe. You would add a half inch to that measurement and find the closest size using the sizing chart. We find that 10.55 inches is the closest interior length, which equals a size 40 Risto.
