The Alexander McQueen Sneakers Sizing Guide
Unsure what size to get in Alexander McQueen’s men’s sneakers? The brand uses European sizing for its sneakers, and you can use the below chart to find your corresponding UK size or to see how this matches to your heel-to-toe length in centimeters.
For example, if you typically wear a men’s UK 9 or have a foot length of 28.6cm, then you should take your Alexander McQueen sneakers in a size 43.

- How can you tell if Alexander McQueen sneakers are real?
All Alexander McQueen sneakers come with spare thick cotton laces, booklet, and a branded box. The box will come in a gray color, and features ‘Alexander McQueen’ in the brand’s signature style across the box’s lid and a distinctive print inside the lid. A sticker on the box will tell you the size of the shoe, and may sometimes show the silhouette of the shoe. Authentic sneakers will not show you an actual picture or photo of the shoe on the sticker.
To lessen its environmental impact and to reduce cotton consumption, Alexander McQueen no longer provides a dust bag with its sneakers.
On the brand’s Oversized sneakers, real pairs will feature gold-toned lettering at the tongue and heel and will be crafted from high-quality leather. The sole should be a bright white color, not off-white.
Authentic Alexander McQueen sneakers are sold by Alexander McQueen retail and outlet stores, as well as authorized department stores, retailers and specialty stores.
- Do Alexander McQueen sneakers run true to size?
Alexander McQueen sneakers generally fit true to size, and we would recommend taking your usual size. Alexander McQueen’s Oversized sneakers also run true to size, and we would advise not sizing up or down in this particular style.
