Our tighter-fit AKIRA label dresses tend to run a bit small. Please refer to the below
AKIRA denim comes with stretch. If you are in between sizes and prefer a snug fit, consider sizing down.
Shoe size may vary from manufacturer to manufacturer. Fit is tested using size 8-8.5 shoe. Recommendations to order smaller or larger shoe will be visible on description (e.g., "runs narrow; order 1/2 size up.")
HOW TO MEASURE SHOE SIZE LENGTH: Place ruler on the ground, perpendicular to the wall, so the '0' is against the wall. In bare feet, step on the ruler, with the back of your heel against the wall. The measurement taken at the longest part of your foot determines your shoe size.
HOW TO MEASURE SHOE SIZE WIDTH: With the ruler in the same position, step with your bare foot onto the ruler - this time with the outside of your foot touching the wall. The measurement taken at the widest part of your foot determines your shoe width.
HOW TO MEASURE HEEL HEIGHT: We measure from a size 8-8.5 shoe and will vary slightly depending on the size you order. The heel is measured up the center back of the heel to where it meets the sole. All measurements are approximate and rounded down to the nearest quarter inch.
These are sooo sexy!!! Hard to put on initially but once you have it laced up properly, then you can just zip them on. So glad I got them! :P
These are so freakin sexy, however, unraveling/loosening the (very tight) straps in order to be able to get them on your feet and to be able to zip them up (omg) that part was awful, finally being able to zip them up once you’ve loosened the straps which the straps material sticks together while loosening. That was the absolute worst thing I’d ever had to do in order to be able to put on a pair of sandals, they do not make putting these on easy as all. Had I know it would’ve been so difficult unloosing them to the point of getting them on and zipping them up I would not have purchased, pretty or not. After an hour, if not longer, my daughter and I were finally able to loosen them enough to the point that I could put them on and zip them up. Once you’re done fighting, literally fighting with the straps and you’re able to put them on your feet and zip them up, they are VERY pretty on, they make your legs look good and amazingly sexy. They are a must have if you’re willing to devote at least an hour or so and put the work in, oh and be prepared to sweat! I’m not sure how often I’ll wear them because of m the way they are made since you’ll have to repeat the loosening part each time you wear them but they are beautiful! Good luck
These shoes gave me life
