Women accounted for the smallest girth of the legs is 21cm and the largest is 27.5.

So, in the English system completeness is indicated by the letters A, B, C, D, E and F. But, in addition, nearby you can see also staging completeness - 2A, 3A, 4A, 5A and 6A (downward) and 2F, 3F, 4F, 5F, 6F (upward).

In addition, British manufacturers are able to label shoes and so: F (normal fullness), G (wider leg), N (wide feet with wide bones), N ½ (very wide feet). Sometimes completeness is generally not indicated. This means that the Shoe has a normal fullness.
9
On the American scale of widths. distinguished designation: – narrow foot, D – standard, E – more than a full foot, HER wide feet.
