BS ISO 9407:2019 pdf download – Footwear sizing — Mondopoint system of sizing and marking
This document specifies a method of designation and marking of footwear size called Mondopoint,based on defined measurements of the foot that the footwear is intended to fit.
This document is applicable to all types of footwear.

article(s) made of a sole (outsole) and an upper in different materials designed to protect or cover the foot Note 1 to entry: This shall be interpreted to mean all types of footwear without restriction, including boots, slippers, sandals, etc.
[SOURCE: ISO 19952:2005, 68, modified — Note 1 to entry has been added.]
designated size marking of a shoe (3.1) or last made for a given foot length (3.3) in any given shoe sizing system
[SOURCE: ISO/TS 19408:2015, 2.1.11]
maximum horizontal distance from the centre of the back of the heel (maximum point of heel curve) to the end of the most prominent toe, with the subject standing with the weight of the body equally distributed on both feet, barefoot or wearing thin hose that does not significantly affect the dimensions of the foot
Note 1 to entry: Measure the foot length along the inside tangent. See Figure 1. “Inside tangent” is defined in ISO/TS 19408:2015, 2.1.6.
[SOURCE: ISO/TS 19408:2015, 2.1.4, modified — The second method has been removed from Note 1 to entry.]
linear width of the foot
maximum horizontal distance, o, between the outside swell of the head of the first metatarsal and utside swell of the head of the fifth metatarsal of the foot measured under the same conditions as foot length (3.3)
Note 1 to entry: See Figures 2 and 3.
[SOURCE: ISO/TS 19408:2015, 2.1.10, modified — “measured under the same conditions as foot length”has replaced “or the corresponding points at the last” and Note 1 to entry has been replaced.]
joint girth of the foot
anatomic ball girth of the foot
circumference of the foot in a vertical plane around the heads of the first and fifth metatarsal bones Note 1 to entry: See Figure 3.
Note 2 to entry: The measurement is made using a flexible inelastic tape approximately 8 mm to 10 mm wide, applying only a slight pressure that does not significantly affect the dimensions of the foot, and under the same conditions as foot length (3.3). The tape is positioned with one edge aligned with the metatarsophalangeal joints of the first and fifth metatarsals and the width of the tape laying behind (posterior) the metatarsophalangeal joint, as shown in Figure 2.

4 Fundamental characteristics of the Mondopoint sizing system
4.1 The sizing system shall be based on the two measurements given in 4.2 and 4.3.
4.2 Length of the foot, which is the primary characteristic, measured in millimetres and expressed as an integer, that the footwear is intended to fit.
4.3 Linear width of the foot, which is the secondary characteristic, measured in millimetres and expressed as an integer, that the footwear is intended to fit.
NOTE The above provisions do not preclude the use of the joint girth of the foot or other foot dimensions at other stages of the specification and manufacture of footwear.
5 Method of expressing Mondopoint sizing
Mondopoint sizing shall be expressed using the measurement, in millimetres, corresponding to the length of the foot (see 4.2) and, if required, to the linear width of the foot (see 4.3), without mention of the measurement units.
NOTE The above provision does not preclude the use of codes as an additional means of expressing the linear width or joint girth of the foot.
