Can someone help explain what this letter means on my shoe box?


I recently purchased some Hoka shoes the size on the box says 7.5B what does the B mean?

Thanks for reaching out!

Typically, the letter 'B' next to a shoe size means that it is a 'B' width. If it's a women's shoe, a 'B' width is the standard width, if it is a men's shoe, 'B' would indicate that it is a narrow shoe.

Hopefully this helps, thanks!
