If you wear a size 8.5 in men's shoes what size would you wear in a women's shoe?

As a general rule, converting men's to women's shoe sizes is fairly simple - you would subtract two sizes from your U.S. women's size to find the appropriate size in U.S. men's shoes.

For example, if you wear a size 9 in U.S. women's shoes - you would most likely take a size 7 in U.S. men's.
