Not all brands of footwear fit the same. The standard size guide below is a good indicator on what size you should wear, but there may be slight variations in sizing between different brands. Most foot problems can be prevented by wearing properly fitting footwear. Don’t assume that your footwear size remains the same. The shape of your feet changes as you get older. Have both feet measured regularly as most people have one foot larger than the other. Fit to the largest foot. Always try footwear with your regular work socks. Make sure that they are laced properly. The ends of your toes should not touch the front part of the footwear. To double check the fit untie the laces and slide your forefinger down the back of the footwear behind the heel. The ends of your toes should hit the front toe part of the footwear. ￼
Take care of your Scruffs footwear and it’ll last longer. To ensure best use and wear it’s strongly recommended that Scruffs footwear is inspected and cleaned regularly. The following tips show you how:

It is important that the Scruffs footwear selected for wear must be suitable for the protection level required and the wear environment. Where a wear environment is not known, it is very important that consultation is carried out between the seller and the purchaser to ensure, where possible, that the correct footwear is provided.
All Scruffs footwear has been tested for slip resistance, but cannot guarantee to prevent slips. Hence, care must be taken when on slippery surfaces.
