Okay, i normally wear a 7.5 and I ordered 7's. They were a bit loose, but I didn't want to go thru the hassle of sending them back either. They stretched out a bit and now they are almost unwearable due to they rub blisters... yes I have gotten blisters from my uggs... so the next pair I purchased I purchased a 6. a bit snug at first, but after a bit if stretching (like 4 wearings) they are perfect!!! I hope this helps

Yes, I'd say just go through the hassle and get a 6. I'm normally a 8.5 and I ended up buying a size 7, which is perfect!

Any answers for Lanvin? - true to size, runs big or small?? I'm after a pair of boots and i don't know what size i should get. I'm normally a 38.


YSL Rive Gauche heels- true to size
Alexander McQueen flats- went size and a half down (run large).
Alexander McQueen heels- went 1 size down
Celine- depends. some flats run small, some true to size.
Pedro Garcia- runs a bit large
Marc Jacobs- very narrow for my wide feet

Just a few things to add....
I have found that Versace, Valentino, Burberry, Casadei and Zac Posen shoes run true-to-size generally. Jimmy Choos and Manolo Blahniks run 1/2 size small. Christian Louboutins sizing depends on the style (see my guide to christian louboutin shoe sizing on ebay!). Choos, Blahniks & Louboutins do run narrow. Salvatore Ferragamo and Stuart Weitzman shoes run narrow, but I still get my normal size...if your foot is wide at any point, I would size up 1/2 size for comfort.

I'm buying a pair of Vivienne Westwood's pirate boots and I was wondering if anybody could explain the sizing to me? It can be found at http://www.hervia.com/Shoes-Pirate-B...duct_info.html. Are they in American or European sizing? I'm questioning this because a size 3 is awfully small for American and I'm quite confused. So basically, if I wear an American 7.5/8, how would this translate into other sizing? If it is sized differently, that is.

McQueen
I'm sad that the McQueens fall larger! Does anyone else have info on them, specifically on sandals? I'm usually a 37.5/7.5...

You probably want a 5.

cinechrome, i find mcqueen shoes to be the most uncomfortable shoes ever, but they were true to size for me, and im a 37.5 too... but i dont know about sandals, as i only got to wear closed-toe pumps!

anyway, does anybody know how do the lanvin flats run? true to size? small?

if only i could try a pair on i'll be sure on what size to buy...

Couple comments ...

I wear my regular size in Dolce & Gabbana.

Marc Jacobs ... my regular size is 8 (European 38), and I own both 7.5s and 8.5s. Every pair I have has ended up stretching. I would buy these on the small side.
