i don't know if this has been mentioned at all...
but have you guys noticed that they changed their sizing on their shoes...?

they are running 1/2 size smaller...
so now a 38 is really a 71/2...with no 1/2 sizes ( which isn't new for them)...
i know that is what it is supposed to be...
but i am an american 8 and always wore zara 38 with no prob...
but now...
no way, JOSE!...38 is way tight...
and 39 falls off...
*kinda s*cks for me...but there ya go...


just mentioning it in case anyone wasn't aware...
especially since there is going to be more and more ordering on line pretty soon!

Subcontracts.... thats not something companies can always control. It happens the exact same thing with Ikea. It only happens in certain countries, Im quite sure you can't find such a thing in La Coruña. Anyway, Zara is fixing it.

on all shoes????!!!!! i was thinking it was just me! i am in the exact same position. size 38, but nowhere near a 39. i bought some sandals from them a while ago when in paris but just assumed that it might be a country thing.

I've tried of few shoes today. Sizing is still exactly the same to me. I'm a 37.5 and a 37 is slightly too small and a 38 a bit too big as it has always been with Zara..

This is horrible. Even though this is just one more case of subcontract, it's still Zara's responsibility.
