• Answer What Women's Shoe Width Measurements Mean Shoe manufacturers have standardized rules for how to measure length but shoe width measurements are much more variable. There is some general agreement that a shoe increases 3/16th of an inch around the circumference of the ball of the foot for every increase in width for the same length.||Here are the terms used to measure shoe widths moving from the most narrow to the widest: ||AA = N = "narrow" or "double A" ||M = B = "medium", the most common or "average" width for that size. ||W = C = "wide"
