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.
After eyeballing these boots for a week or so, I finally decided to purchase them when the site was having a boot sale for 30% off. I always read reviews before making an online purchase so I thought I needed to size up and I got a size 10 instead of a nine. Because a few women suggested sizing up if you have thicker thighs. Why did I do that!!!??? When the boots arrived, they had enough stretch in them that a size nine would’ve fit me and my curvy legs, perfectly. Get your actual size!!! Hope this helps someone. Xo
They are worth the money
I’ve debated on getting these for a while now, and I am SO happy I finally bought them! I’m 5’1 and 105lbs and ordered a size 6.5, I usually go down a half size for heels (normally a 7). I was worried they’d be too big on me since they have a little give to them, but they fit perfectly!! Shipping was super fast too - arrived in a couple of days.
Im 5'0 with thick thighs and my calves are thick...damn near every boot I had it was a struggle getting them on amd thigh high boots was almost always impossible to get on period even with my husbands help. After having my babies i stopped wearing boots altogether...but these boots slid on with no problem and to say im short they still looked amazing on me and the compliments was all day and my husband loves my lil ass in these boots...i would say though of you have wide feet or like a more comfy fit go a half size up due to the pointy toe im glad i did because my feet is little but wide at the toes area....and because im short i did have to alter the side belt holder to have it around my waist and not my the middle of my stomach but again im barely 5feet
They fit wonderfully and are just as beautiful as the picture! I love that I can accessorize with any belt that I choose!
