How to find the correct footwear size
1. Stand on a piece of paper and mark the distance from your longest toe to the heel end.
2. Measure the distance between these two marks to find out your foot length.
3. Repeat the same procedure also for the other foot (right and left foot are hardly ever the same in lenght. Please, always consider the longest one).
4. Don’t forget to save some additional room on the toe area.
Alethea is an English language female first name derived from the ancient and modern Greek feminine noun αλήθεια (pronounced “al-ee-thia”), meaning “truth”. It is thus an equivalent of the name Verity, from the Latin feminine noun veritas, “truth”. The name dates from the 16th century, as given in 1585 to Alethea Talbot (1585–1654), the youngest daughter of Gilbert Talbot, 7th Earl of Shrewsbury and later Countess of Arundel following her marriage to Thomas Howard, 21st Earl of Arundel. The name as used for the daughter of a wealthy nobleman in the Renaissance era in England would certainly have been pronounced “Al-ee-thia”, that is as an Ancient Greek word, as the father would have received a thorough education in Ancient Greek and Latin and would thus be aware of the correct pronunciation.
