    For any of you who have struggled to decipher the old fashioned size codes in vintage shoes, here's a handy guide. The first number stands for the width, with a lower number denoting a narrower shoe and a higher one a wider one. The second set of numbers is the size, codes ending in 0 are full sizes, codes ending in 5 are half sizes.
