“A standard clown shoe is 15″. Most clowns order this size. However, on occasion, a clown that is portraying a character (ie: cop, fireman, chef, tramp, hobo, etc.) may order a longer shoe. For the clown that marches in parades or walks a lot, a longer length is not suggested. Women’s standard clown shoe length is normally 13″. Male shoe: 15″ (standard) Women shoe: 13″ (standard)”
