But, it is important to have shoes that fit well. Everyone knows that ill-fitting shoes can become very uncomfortable and even bad for your feet. After all, trainers are meant to make you feel at ease especially if you have to be up on your feet all day.

Part of the confusion lies in the fact that Converse shoes are meant to be unisex. Hence, if you are a woman, you have to convert to men's sizes. But, if you are a youth girl, there is no need to convert to a youth boy as there is no size difference across this group.

For adult size, it starts at 3 which is also the same size as the youth. Hence, if you are wearing this size, you can actually get one for a cheaper price as the shoes are in the same style and size.

Adult sizes run from 3 to 18. If for instance you are a woman and you are a US size 7, then you have to order a size 5 in the men's shoes.

At this point, Converse shoes are rather big (long and narrow), so you have to go down half a size which means that your Converse shoes will be 4 1/2.
