In case you were puzzled by the French sizing of the F-Troupe lace-ups, we thought we’d lend a hand.

This chart should help you make sense of a fairly confusing system. There are a lot of different systems out there, but it’s probably simpler than you think. British sizes are more or less the same, European sizes don’t vary too much from country to country, and we doubt your sartorial travels will take you much farther than that. When in doubt, round up.

And avoid Chinese sizes at all costs.
