Dual size footwear
the issues, advantages and disadvantages of producing dual-size marked footwear.
The phrase ‘dual sizing’ refers to the practice adopted by some manufacturers and retailers of providing their customers with a choice of only half the number of footwear sizes that would normally be available. Thus, for example, instead of making six different UK or US sizes (such as 4, 5, 6, 7, 8 and 9), the sizes would be paired up, and only three sizes would be produced: 4/5, 6/7 and 8/9.
