    They seem to be the same design as mine - just without the heels. Unlike the ballerinas this style runs true to size. At least the version with heels.

    The SA at Repetto always say you have to buy an half-size bigger.
    I'm a 39, I always buy my Repetto flats in size 39 and I'm always very comfortable in them.
    Hopefully, it will be the same for you. ^_^

    i'm a 39 too and i have own the zizi's in 39 as well... however i find the flats/heels a bit tighter so 39.5 feels more comfortable when i try them on. the shoes probably stretch a bit so 39s might be fine for you.
    never had to go up to 40 though! :flower:

    THEY FIT! THEY FIT! THEY FIT *does a little dance*

    Ok they should have been half a size bigger, it's exactly like nylonbits said, but they are no different from other shoes I have.:heart:^_^

    les, the shoes you bought are very cute!

    in terms of sizing, i'd have to agree with the other ladies and say size 1/2 to a full size up in general.

    So I just got a sudden urge to get a pair of white repetto zizi while thinking about Gainsbourg, I know they are played out, which is perfect, however I have no idea where to buy them. I don't want to wait until I'm in Paris so online would do the trick. I'm looking at a size 40-41 (men's).

    Cheers

    the reason they run small is because they are french sizes which is not the same as Italian/European sizes. French sizes are 1/2 - 1 size smaller. Correct me if I'm wrong ;)
    So I'm guessing that why Diorette says it TTS ;)
    Want a pair of flats myself but not sure how much I should size up.
    These are the ones I want.

    Perhaps it's just me, but from my experience Repettos are pretty true to size. I got mine in 40 when I'm usually a 39-39.5, and they were a bit too large. I'd be more comfortable in a Repetto 39.

    i size half size up. so i am usually a 38.5 and always get 39 in Repettos. I only have one pair in an actual 38.5 and must say they fit also perfectly. but they are buttery soft :)

    French sizes are tagged 0.5 higher than usual European sizes (a 40 EU=40.5 french).

    does repetto make any mary-jane flats? i've been looking everywhere for some (preferably without the $400+ price tag), but to no avail... :(
