Werner Kern dance shoes are usually slightly larger than regular street shoes. The shoe should fit firmly, as the nappa or suede leather will yield when dancing. Basically, we recommend, for example, for size 39 to choose the shoe in size 5½ or for 38 the size 4½.

When buying, please also pay attention to the last of each article. Each article is made on its own last. You can find the last of the article under additional information at the very bottom. All articles within a last are more or less the same. Since the size chart only shows the conversion from UK to EU and US sizes, we have added an additional chart that shows the variation from the size chart.

If you choose for example article Gala 4.5 and you normally have size 38, then you will see under the additional information that it is the last MATTI. Therefore, select ½ size smaller (marked with -½) i.e. 4½.

Another example: You would like to dance with SONIA. A brilliant shoe! And you have size 38. According to the size chart, that would be a size 5. The shoe is made on the last Sata I, Therefore, according to the performance table, choose the size 4 (5 -1). You think that is too small, no, because the last Sata I has a very large fit.

We will be happy to advise you personally. It's always better to try on different models and sizes.
