Beckett Simonon’s order time is up to three months now, so I can only imagine how tough it would be to have your new shoes show up only to find out they don’t fit.
Lucky for you, that’s not happening today (or in three months).
I own several pairs of Beckett Simonons, from the Reid sneakers to some of their fancier dress boots.
This sizing guide shares with you everything you need to know to pick the correct size shoe before you hit the “buy” button.

Beckett Simonon Sizing Guide
All Beckett Simonon shoes, sneakers, and boots fit the same, and they’re all true to size.
The easiest way to find out what size you should get for your Beckett Simonons is to look in your closet and determine which size shoe is most common.
I’ll give you some examples:
I’m a 10.5D on the Brannock device (the metal device used in shoe stores to measure your foot). When I order new sneakers and dress shoes, I get a size 10.5.
When I order Beckett Simonon, regardless of whether I’m getting a pair of their sneakers, dress shoes, or their boots, I get a size 10.5 and I’ve found the fit to be spot on.
So if you’re a size 9 in most of your sneakers and dress shoes, get a size 9 in Beckett Simonon.
This holds true for the entire Beckett Simonon line. That said, there’s one wrinkle in that advice, and it only applied to the Reid and other Beckett Simonon sneakers.
Beckett Simonon Reid Sneaker Sizing
If you measure an E width or wider on the Brannock device, you may want to size up a half step for your Beckett Simonon Reid sneakers.
If you don’t know whether you have a wide foot or not, you probably don’t. Still, it’s always helpful to go get your foot measured properly and note what width you are.
Some guys go their whole lives not knowing they have a wide foot, so they always order shoes a size too big to accommodate their wide feet.
While it may take you around three months to get your feet into these bad boys, they're well worth the wait. Made-to-order, crafted from full-grain Italian leather with a Vachetta leather lining, the Reid packs a ton of value at this price point. We also love that the eyelets are hidden to make for a slightly sleeker look overall.
Because the Reid is a slimmed down narrow sneaker, if your foot is E width or wider, it’s going to feel cramped. That’s why I recommend sizing up a half step in that case.
Beckett Simonon ships their sneakers with a foam insert you can add to the sneaker, so you can add those and reduce the additional volume left in the sneaker from ordering a half-size larger than you normally would.
Now, if you have a standard D-width foot and you’ve never bought a wide size before, I recommend sticking with your usual size for the Reid sneaker. Don’t pick a half-size larger just for the heck of it. Beckett Simonon’s fit is true to size, so stick with what you normally get for sneakers. Only order a half-size up if you have wide feet.
Beckett Simonon Dress Shoes and Boots Sizing
Beckett Simonon dress shoes and boots have a bit more room in them compared to their sneakers, but not so much extra room that I recommend changing sizes.
If you have a pair of sneakers from the brand and you’re looking at their dress shoe or boot line, I recommend getting the same size.
Beckett Simonon doesn’t offer wide sizes for any of their shoes or boots, so if you’re wide-footed, you can also try bumping up a half-size and adding an insert to fill up the additional volume.
The Beckett Simonon Deans are full-grain leather Oxfords that boast a high level of hands-on craftsmanship. At often ~$200, these classic, slim shoes fly miles over their price point. Oh, and they’re also super comfortable, to boot.
Beckett Simonon Size Chart
Using your regular shoe size is the best way to determine your Beckett Simonon size. But I put together a sizing chart for the brand that can act as a sort of “second opinion” if you have a tape measure and want to measure the length of your foot.
This size chart doesn’t say much about the width or height of your foot, so it can only take you so far.
But if you’re converting from UK or EU sizing, the chart will help you find the correct US size.
You’re Ready to Wait
Getting the correct size shoe from Beckett Simonon is pretty simple. Since they run true to size, you’re safe getting your regular sneaker size.
If you have wide feet (E or EE width on the Brannock), then you may want to size up a half step and use the foam inserts Beckett Simonon ships their shoes and boots with.
But if you have standard D width feet, you’ll have no issues getting your normal size in Beckett Simonon sneakers and shoes.
Now the only question remains: are you ready to wait three months to get your new shoes?
I’ll say this: I’ve bought from Beckett Simonon multiple times and have always been happy with what I got, even if the wait was a little long.
The Beckett Simonon Morgens are classic GATs with a modern simplicity to them due to contrasts that aren’t super dramatic. Still, all of the signatures are there, from the suede detailing on the full-grain leather to the gum soles
How should I size my Beckett Simonon shoes?
Beckett Simonon shoes run true to size so you should get your normal sneaker and dress shoe size. Or get your Brannock size. Beckett Simonon shoes and boots are all standard D width and they don’t offer any wide sizes.
Are Beckett Simonon shoes comfortable?
Yes, Beckett Simonon shoes are very comfortable. I own pairs of their sneakers, dress shoes, and boots, and they all feel soft, comfortable, and supportive.
