I usually go up half a size or even one size for DVN's shoes, they tend to run smaller

thought I would post some of the choices so far this season. I'm sure there will be many more to come.

One of my favorite pairs are these from s/s 08....

you're welcome, mona thanks for posting those. The only issue I had with last season's shoes (and the ones you posted were Stunning IRL) is that the heel was wonky, it was placed in a weird way that made balance a challenge. this season the heels seems much more manageable.

You are completely correct about last season's, lucky. I actually have the beaded pair. I couldn't pass them up. They are just too beautiful (plus, I got them on super sale!)....
What does help is the platform under the ball of the foot. I find adding this platform makes a world of difference. What also helps is the heaviness of the beading and the thick ankle straps. At least when wearing them, I feel secure..... more so than other DVNs I tried on from s/s 08.
I do hope this season is better, but have yet to try a pair on.

^ Did anyone get or try on those beaded shoes? I assumed they would be super-heavy, but maybe he made it work ...

Oh, I am so insanely jealous! The beaded DVN are my dream shoes, and I seemed to have missed out everywhere I knew stocked them (I couldn't find them anywhere in Australia! )

If for some reason you ever decide to part with them and are a 38 or 38.5 (I hear they run small, is that true?), let me know, haha! :p

Imelanie, IMO fall shoes tend to run smaller than summer for Dries. if its a closed toe shoe that isnt a pump (something you could "walk" out of) then I would go for the 40.5.

which shoe is it? did you see that gimme shoes has a bunch for sale...

lmelanie - I wouldn't order a 40.5 (sorry). I have the multi-colored sandals and find they fit very TTS. I normally wear a size 8/38, but size up in some brands (Louboutin, Manolo). I took a 38 in these. I think they run quite wide (maybe b/c they were designed to wear with socks?). Hope this helps! Have you tried Barneys? They had them on sale recently.

Wow! Thanks for posting, Jungla Juana!
I <3 #2 and #3. Overall, I am really feeling the placement and the shape of the heel! Look forward to trying these on
