Size chart

Our stirrups come in one size only, which fits for kids and adults alike. Every pair of stirrups includes a pair of magnetic insoles of your choice. This guide covers the following:

  1. Converting your size to EU sizing
  2. Optional: Determining your insole size with printable A4 templates
  3. Optional: Trimming your insoles
  4. Optional: Choosing an alternative magnet position
  5. Optional: Deciding between Standard and PLUS versions

 

Converting your size to EU sizing (from UK, US, Japan)

1. Check your riding boots for international sizing-labels

For many riding boots, the EU size is indicated on the size label, which you will find inside your boots. This is, for instance, the case for Ariat boots, which correspond very well with our sizes. So if you own Ariats you can simply order our insoles in the EU size indicated on the size label of those boots.

 

2. Use the sizing guide below

Our insoles are true to size and can be chosen using the table below. If you are uncertain, scroll further to determine the size using printable A4 templates. We also offer free size exchanges in case things don't work out.

Scroll the table to the left to see more.

*Length: This is the lengths of the insoles, not the heel-to-toe lengths. Do not measure your feet directly. Instead, measure existing insoles or use the PDF templates provided below to determine accurate fit.

 

Optional: Determining your insole size with printable A4 templates

To determine the insole size, we recommend that you download our folder with PDF templates. The folder contains each insole size on an A4 sheet. When printing, make sure to select actual size or 100% scale in the printing dialogue. Here is a step-by-step guide:

  1. Download the zip-folder with printable PDFs.
  2. Choose your size: Open the PDF with your shoe size (e.g. 39).
  3. Print the document in actual size: In the printing dialogue select settings like actual size or 100% scale.
  4. Double-check print size: Take the print and measure the length of the vertical dashed line with a ruler. The measured length must equal the length stated right next to the line. If it differs by more than 2mm, the printer scaled down the print. Please go back to step 3.
  5. Cut the printed insole and put it into your boots: It should fit tight and not be able to move back and forth.

What if it doesn’t fit?

  • Printed insole is too big? Repeat with a smaller size.
  • Printed insole is too small? Repeat the process with a bigger size.
  • In between sizes? Order the bigger size and trim it with scissors or a knife (see instructions below).

 

Optional: Trimming your insoles

You can carefully trim your insoles using a sharp knife or scissors. Be aware that the insoles contain magnets, which attract metallic objects like most knives and scissors. 

Trimming your insoles does not affect our 60-day money-back guarantee. You can trim and try, and we still take them back if you are not satisfied.

 

Optional: Choosing an alternative magnet position

Our magnetic insoles have a fixed magnetic system, which is placed below the ball of the foot - for the perfect balance and flexibility. It's the position recommended by us and most riding instructors. Over 96% of our customers are happy with this position.

That said, some riders have personal preferences and we'd like to accommodate those by offering alternative magnet positions for our insoles in size EU37 and larger. If you know that you are a toe rider, you can review the available magnet positions for your shoe size by downloading these PDFs.

The PDFs indicate the standard position we deliver. If you wish to get one of the alternative positions, please do the following:

  1. Place your order with the correct size (e.g EU39)
  2. Contact us right after placing your order - you can simply answer to your order confirmation email or use our chat in the lower right corner. Simply tell us the position you would like to receive (a, b, or c). There are no additional costs.

 

Optional: Deciding between Standard and PLUS versions

By default, our magnetic safety stirrups come with our Standard insoles. If you wish to receive the PLUS version with your order, you can let us know after placing your order and we will upgrade you free of charge. The differences between the two versions are explained here

The difference between the two versions is the tread.

Ophena S has a tread made of glas fibre-reinforced plastics. Ophena S Pro features an aluminium tread with a more grippy surface. Both products have the same magnetic system and other features, but the Pro gives you even more grip.

By default, our magnetic safety stirrups come with our Standard insoles. If you wish to receive the stronger PLUS version with your order, you can let us know after placing your order and we will upgrade you free of charge. The differences between the two versions are explained in the following: 

STANDARD insoles come with our magnetic safety stirrups by default. They offer just the right magnetic power for most cases: Your stirrups stay at your feet while riding, but still allow you to release them with a simple motion. The vast majority of our customers - over 95% - are perfectly happy with this version.

PLUS insoles are for those who need (or want) a little more adhesion. We usually recommend them to professional riders as well as para riders. They also work great for boots with thicker soles, to balance out the loss in magnetic power that comes with thicker shoe soles. Note that the PLUS version is ca. 6mm thick, which is 1mm more than the STANDARD version. 

Both versions release in case of a fall.

Our magnetic insoles have a fixed magnetic system, which is placed below the ball of the foot - for the perfect balance and flexibility. It's the position recommended by us and most riding instructors. Over 96% of our customers are happy with this position.

Questions and Answers

Yes, one pair of magnetic insoles is included. Additional pairs can be bought separately here.

No, we only sell at ophena.com. But all our products come with our unique 60-day money-back guarantee, so you can purchase them, try them, and return them for a full refund if you are not satisfied.

The difference is the tread: The Ophena S feature a tread made of fiber-reinforced plastic. The Ophena S Pro feature an aluminum tread with diamond-shaped spikes. The Ophena S Pro therefore offers you even more grip. For advice on which one to choose have a look here.

That depends on country and discipline. Please find an overview here.

No, but they work perfectly well for women, men and children alike. As long as your shoe size is somewhere between EU32 and EU46 (for conversions, see our sizing guide).

Conventional stirrups come in different sizes to reduce the risk of losing the stirrup (if the stirrup is too big) or getting caught in the stirrup (if it is too small). Ophena addresses each of these risks with its magnetic system and open design.

Känns tryggt till dottern

Så nöjd att jag köpte Ophena till dottern på 5år som rider och även mig själv. Dottern fastnade i ett par stigbyglar av annat märke och blev rädd när hon hamnade under hästen. Bestämde efter detta att hon skulle testa Ophena. Dottern testade dom och kände sig så mycket tryggare när hon kände hur dom funkade och rädslan i ridningen har försvunnit, att fötterna hamnar i rätt position konstant är bara en enorm bonus! Har redan rekommenderat till andra ponnyföräldrar och kommer garanterat njuta av mina egna också nu när unghästen ska ridas in.

Awesome!

I got a lot of my confidence back in the saddle because of these stirrups! Always been on my wishlist and a few months back I decided I’m just gonna buy them! SO HAPPY! Only My horse lost her fight against colic last week so I’ll not be riding for a while I think. But these beautiful stirrups will always be with me for maybe a future horse.

The best

After having a bad accident with my horse, where I got stuck in my previous stirrups. I was very specific on what I wanted. These stirrups have given me confidence back and I can move forward again. They are the best!
