I was fitted for dress shoes for the first time — and I was surprised to find out my real shoe size

When it comes to dress shoes, you’re likely not the size you think you are.

That’s because 80% of guys are actually walking around in shoes that are the wrong size, which affects their comfort and longevity.

In light of hearing this statistic, I started thinking: what if I’m not wearing the right size shoes? I do have one pair of dress shoes in a size 9 in a brand that didn’t carry wide sizes, but they’re uncomfortable and hurt my feet.

What even is my “true size”? The fact is I had no idea.
