It is now well known that anthropometric measures of the foot differ in different communities. This research is a descriptive study to determine the foot measures collected from 1956 personnel working at a communication school. The results of this study are statistically different from the values of Paris system that is accepted by Turkish National Institute for Standardization (abbreviated as TSE). It is found that Turkish men's feet are shorter and wider as compared to the standards accepted by TSE.
