Sizing Guide

Joab shoes are available in:

EU40 41 42 43 44 45
EU 35 36 37 38 39 40


You should wear Joab shoes snugly, with the toes touching the end. The leather will stretch with wear.

We don’t make half sizes, so if your feet measure between sizes we recommend sizing down (unless you wear an additional supportive insole).

If possible, compare sizes with other loafers, espadrilles or slip-ons (not athletic shoes or boots).


Joab shoes come in a men’s and a women’s fit.

The men’s shoe is wider and allows for a broader foot, while the women’s shoe is narrower and allows for a more slender foot. It is common for women with a wider foot to wear the men’s shoe, and vice versa. Other than the width, there is no discernible difference between our men’s and women’s shoes.


We recommend wearing Joab shoes without socks (the water buffalo sole usually neutralises smell). However, if you feel more comfortable wearing socks we suggest thin low-cut socks.

Due to the hand-made process, the inner stitching can sometimes be felt around the toes. This is normal and will soften into a seamless sole as you wear your Joab shoes.


With wear, the rubber outer sole might pull away from the leather sole. This is nothing to be alarmed about, and any cobbler worth their salt will be able to fix it quickly and easily.
