The ball of the foot is the section just below the toes and is the widest section of the foot.
1 Wrap a soft measuring tape around the ball of your foot, holding the tape snugly. Read the measuring tape where it overlaps.
2 If you don't have a soft measuring tape, use a piece of non-stretchy yarn (such as cotton) and wrap that around your foot, marking where it meets. Lay this against a straight ruler or hard measuring tape to get your foot measurement.
