It's two less than it is over here. So I'm a 10 in American shoe sizes but only an 8 here! :o)ll Most shoes will also come in half sizes over there, which can make it easier if you're a little in between sizes.

Actually, I'm usually a 5 (sometimes a 5 1/2) here, but I'm an 8 in american sizes. I calculate american sizes from european sizes - a 38 is an 8 in american sizes - just drop the 3 usually.

I bought some shoes on Amazon the other day & was totally confused! I'm UK size 5 or European size 38 - all good so far. I checked out the size on some shoes I bought in America & they were a 7. The sizing chart for the shoes on Amazon however says that Eur38 is the same as UK4.5. Problem with shoes is that you really have to try them on & where possible go by the manufacturers sizing. PS: Just looked at the shoes I have on now and they are 4.5 (non-leather) In summary - go by your Irish size and add 2.
