Central Leather Research Institute develops India specific footwear size chart

Published
May 25, 2022

The Central Leather Research Institute, under the Council of Scientific and Industrial Research, is developing an India specific footwear sizing chart to enable footwear brands to better serve Indian consumers. 

The Central Leather Research Institute aims to launch a sizing chart for Indian footwear - Central Leather Research Institute- Facebook


The 3D foot mapping project has been rolled out across India and the statistical study for the project will be completed in the coming two months, the Central Leather Research Institute’s director Dr Sreeram told Wion News. The survey has already crossed 100,000 people from across 73 Indian districts, aged five years old to 55. The size chart will be developed upon completion of the survey. 
 
According to Sreeram, Indian feet generally have a wider front portion compared to European feet. This can make European-sized footwear uncomfortable for many Indians. The survey is not only measuring this metric, it is gathering a total of 29 data points about each Indian foot examined. 

“Our Indian sizing standard for footwear will be published in the Bureau of Indian Standards by the end of 2022, and by then, shoes and closed footwear for men, women, and children will be available in our markets, based on Indian sizing,” said Sreeram, Wion reported. 
 
The Central Leather Research Institute is also celebrating its 75th year platinum jubilee this year as it was founded in 1948. The organisation has released a commemorative stamp with the Indian postal department to celebrate the occasion, it announced on its Facebook page.
