i'm so upset, and it's all marc jacobs fault.
why the hell does he have to make his shoes so much smaller than NORMAL sizing???

I went through hell and back to get a pair of shoes, (i had to order them from across the country) and i am a size 9, so i ordered 9.5. They are still too small!!! so, i called and the only other size they have left is 41 so i ordered them but i know they will be too big!!

these are my dream shoes. i'm soooo sad right now. why did he have to ruin my life?

stupid marc jacobs.

some MJ shoes do run small... I've tried on several pairs of flats... the 8's (which i'm a size 7.5 - 8) are always painful...

I have tried on his flats and they fit true to size. I have some MJ espadrilles and I had to go up a full size. I hope another pair becomes available for you soon!!

His flats and shoes in general ALWAYS run too small. I agree, it's very annoying.

I find ALL Designer shoes sizings widely Vary and have almost no consistency-

Some Manolos run one size small- others two- still others are true to size-

it doesn't make any sense at all

Judging from the response recieved in the last hours, you're definitely not alone satine112...
I asked for a size 8 flats at the Marc store the other day and found that my feet couldn't even fit in the pair.

I just had the same experience with a pair of Chloe. Wrong size, now they don't have them anymore. I could spit fire I'm so mad about it!
