Once you have this, you can ascertain your insole measurement (please see the image below) and then simply look that up on our size chart to locate the most appropriate size.

Did You Know?
This design is based on the Blenheim Mk IV “GB-D” (Serial V6028) flown by Wing Commander Hughie Edwards whilst Commanding Officer of 105 Squadron (RAF). Serving as a bomber pilot in the Royal Air Force (RAF), Edwards was decorated with the Victoria Cross in 1941 for his efforts in leading a bombing raid against the port of Bremen, one of the most heavily defended towns in Germany.

On 4 July 1941, Edwards led a daylight attack ("Operation Wreckage") against the port of Bremen, Germany. Edwards' force of twelve Blenheims attacked at a height of about 50 feet through telephone wires and high-voltage power lines. The bombers successfully penetrated fierce anti-aircraft fire and a dense balloon barrage, but further fire over the port itself resulted in the loss of four of the attacking force. Edwards brought his remaining aircraft safely back, although all had been hit, and his own Blenheim (“GB-D” Serial V6028) had been hit over 20 times.

He became the most highly decorated Australian serviceman of the Second World War having been awarded the Victoria Cross, Distinguished Service Order and Distinguished Flying Cross.
