Deciding Fit: A Note on Prada Shoe Sizing & Sole Types

As you’re browsing the various Prada shoe styles, did you notice something? The soles on these shoes can appear to be the same across different styles. If you made that observation, you’re onto something. Understanding Prada’s sole types can make choosing the perfect pair of Prada shoes much easier. Prada offers various sole designs, such as the monolith rubber lug soles, 50mm rubber monobloc soles, and lug soles. These soles not only play a part in the shoe’s appearance and height but also its fit. Shoes with the same sole share a common base mold, ensuring a consistent fit across different styles.

  • The Prada Monolith Rubber Lug Sole Monolith rubber lug soles take their inspiration from monolithic design. Within the Monolith line, you’ll come across various heel heights and different styles that all use the same sole mold.
  • The Prada 50mm Rubber Monobloc SoleThe Prada 50mm rubber monobloc sole features a notched embossed rubber welt with a hot-stamped logo at the back. 50mm refers to the height of this particular shoe heel. 
  • The Prada Lug Sole The Prada Lug sole is defined by contrasting lugged rubber soles.
