SABO Shoe Size Guide

The table below shows the approximate shoe size conversions from Russian to UK/EU. The table also shows the internal metric length of the shoe. The Russian to UK/EU conversions are approximations and only offer a rough guide for sizing. We highly recommend measuring your feet using the guide below.

Please note the SABO Deadlift sizes a bit tight. You should not need to size up unless you are on the limit of one size. When checking your sizing with our guide please bear this in mind. Please contact us if you need any help or advice.



The internal metric length of the shoe as displayed in the table above is measured from the heel to the end toe tip (excluding lining and inner sole).

Measuring your feet for sizing

The UK/EU conversion in the table above is not 100% accurate for everyone. We recommend measuring your feet to check which Russian shoe size to choose. To do this you need to measure the length of your feet from heel to toe. We recommend doing this at the end of the day when the feet are at their largest.
It is also best to wear the socks you plan to wear with the shoes. Thicker socks can alter the measurement enough to have an impact on which size you may need.
For the best accuracy measure when standing while the foot is under compression. So if possible get someone to assist with marking while you stand.


Measuring instructions:

  1. You need a piece of paper, a pencil or pen and a ruler.
  2. Draw a straight line on the paper. The line should be longer than your foot.
  3. Place the paper on a flat hard surface (a hard tiled or lino floor in the kitchen is ideal).
  4. Place your foot on the paper - with your heel and longest toe centred on the line. We recommend standing as this will spread your foot out for a more accurate measurement.
  5. Draw a mark at the tip of your toe and the back of your heel.
  6. Measure both feet and use the length of the largest foot.
  7. Take a ruler and measure the distance between the marks.
  8. Add 5 millimetres to measurement.
  9. Take your total measurement (foot length as measure + 5mm) and find your shoe size in the table. For example, if your feet measure 270mm you would add 5mm which gives 275mm and thus you would need a 43.

Great t shirt. True sizes. Great quality.

Top quality. Fast shipping

Great headband and great service!

I’d fallen in love with junk headbands after buying one in the US and was so glad to find 9 for 9 selling them in the UK! This one is so soft but stays on even during the most intense CrossFit workouts- I get loads of compliments on it and it keeps my hair back and out of my eyes!

Love It

Love this band. I've bought a few Junk bands and the design on this one is great. Flex-Ties are my preferred choice as they can be tied to suit your headsize

Nice Design

Work very well to wick away sweat. Similar to the flex tie except it cant be adjusted.

Great for sports

First time buying them and I really like them. Lightweight and wicks sweat very well

Junk Headbands are great.

First time buying them and I really like them. Especially like the flex tie as you can adjust the size.

Comfy lightweight sweatshirt

I know that 'Feed Me Fight Me' clothing is good quality and fits me well (size small). Seeing the Raglan Sweater on sale, I thought 'why not?'. It's a super confortable casual top in a lightweight material with some nice stretch. I'm wearing it right now. Fantastic customer service for '9 for 9' as always, of course. Thanks, guys.

Great design

Love this tee, fits great and love the design

Very good product

The material is very good, as is the workmanship.
The belt will not break and can certainly be inherited.(:-))

Loved it! Good delivery and really good material!

Good quality, quick ship exactly what I expected. Thanks!

love design, and comfortable

definately size up, i'm a size 10/12 and got a large, and its still very fitted, lovelyfeel to fabric and washes well. length wise, because its fitted, sits nice on hips. but i can pull it to cover bum

Fantastic headband

Love the pattern, absorbs all the sweat and is a good length to keep my hair out of my eyes

4 new t-shirts

As usual , excellent quality delivered quickly. Darren and Emma provide a perfect example of a small UK business providing a fantastic service. Always my first option when looking for new training gear.

Great service

Great set of new TYR lifting shoes, fantastic swift service from 9 for 9, and a very nice personalised note which arrived with the package which was a class touch. 👍

Valsuva never felt so good

Being a newbie lifter, I'd been making do with a cheap (tapered) lifting belt for many months, but after deciding to take my deadlifting seriously, I decided to invest in one of these Pioneer cut 10mm belts in grey. The difference in quality is like night and day. This is a heavy but comfortable belt....I feel super supported. Thank you 9for9.

Frank Daddy RPE10 T-shirt

I love this shirt, so I ordered it a couple of times. It looks cute, fits great and I love the fabric. It feels so soft to the skin and I enjoy wearing it during my training sessions. It stays in shape even after washing numerous times now, neither does the print fade. Good value for a reasonable price. Also the personal service, including a handwritten note and treat, are spot on :) In shirts I usually wear S-M. M fits perfectly fine in this case. Highly recommend!

I love these so much! Fast delivery and a great supplier


Great quality, stands out from the crowd!

5 stars

Unbeatable service and good stock of TYR that no one else in the uk seem to have. Will definitely be ordering again.

Superb Leather Conditioner

Using the Bickmore Bick 4 Leather Conditioner made my old taupe soft leather handbag look like new. I plan to condition my old cream leather jacket
