#26- Alexander McQueen. I have quite a few pairs of McQueen's shoes/boots, and find that, like all my YSL Rive Gauche, that they run true to size.

Hope that helps!

I have a few pairs of vivenne westwood heels and boots, the sizing tend to vary. The gold lable ones (the ones which never go on sale, like pirate boots) and the classic ones run true to size, but the seasonal ones tend to be one size up.
I found Miu Miu shoes run true to size
Hope it helps:p

I am a US size 11 typically. My feet are normal width...not wide or narrow.

Nine West fits me the best...their size 11s are not snug and leave me some room to breathe

Chanel runs small - I wear a 42 in Chanel

Gucci - true to size - I wear 11 in Gucci

Dior - runs about a half size small

Prada - true to size - a size 41 is a lil small but sometimes i can get away with it if open toe or open back...I should really wear a 41.5 or a 42 in Prada

I am curious as to how Manolo runs as I have never tried them on

A thread about shoe sizing!
While searching for a thread I realized we don't have a topic about shoe sizing. I thought this could be thread about the different shoe sizing. If youíre not familiar with a shoesize you can post here and maybe some of the members have the shoes!
Iíll begin Ė anyone who owns a pair of Loeffler Randall? If so, do they run small sizes or?

I am wondering about Gucci and Fendi and Marc Jacobs... Alot, I know, but I have never really been into the shoes by these designers until recently. Just wondering what you all know. Thanks!

Ok, I'll repeat the question here.
I'd like to know one thing...
I'll buy Miu Miu shoes on net-a-porter, but I'm not sure about the size...
My size is 40 and on the soles of my Miu Miu shoes there is size 40...
But now I got a bit confused by the sizes on net-a-porter.
I measured my feet so my US size should be 9, my french size should be 40 and my italian size should be 39.
And on net-a-porter you order by italian size.
And I don't know... If I have Miu Miu shoes size 40 and they fit perfectly fine, should I order size 39, because maybe the size on my shoes could be french size (although they are not from france)?
I don't know... I'm confused. Help, please!!
Should I order 40 because it says 40 on the soles of my Miu Miu shoes or should I order 39 because I should be italian size 39?

I think there's the French size, European(Italian size), UK size and US size.

As for me, it translates as follow and true to most shoes.
Fr39, It 38.5, UK 6 and US 8.5

I have a size 9.5 in Steve Maddens and 10 in everything else. Can anyone tell me how Miss Sixty's and Christian L's run? Big or small or true to size?

CL generally runs about a half size big but only because a lot of his shoes run narrow..

However, it really depends on the style.

uggs size help
I bought a pair of the classic short Uggs online in size 7, since I wear 7-half shoes normally and the website recommanded me to go down half a size. I got them today and they are abit loose when I wear them barefoot. When I wear them with socks they are fine, but I'm scared they will strech later on. Should I go through the hassle of sending them back for a size 6? Please help.. thanks!

i'd say EU 38 is a US 7,5 to be more accurate..
i've have lived in both the netherlands and belguim. i'm usually a EU 38 for flat shoes and sometimes a 37 for heels. i have for example the kors beaverton boots in a size US 7,5 and the fit well. i have mostly US 7,5 and EU 38. but yeah, it totally depends on the brand and country! sucks...

Does anyone know how Marc Jacobs shoes run? Compared to Elie Tahari? I'm usually a 38 or 38.5 but I recently received two pairs of Tahari pumps as a gift in a 38.5 and they were a tad too small. There are three pairs of MJ that i'm about to order but i'm afraid i'll get the wrong size.
