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.
I've always wanted chap boots like this but could never find a good fit- I'm too small for plus size, but my thighs are too thick for regular thigh high boots. With the stretch material, these are the perfect fit and sexy AF!
I can't wait to wear these out. They are so sexy and comfortable. I have thick thighs and they stretch to fit perfectly.
I bought my normal size and the toe area fits snug but the legs are pretty stretchy and wide that I doubt I’m going to be able to wear them without jeans. I have pretty big thighs in my opinion I wear a size 10 in jeans. They are have a thin fleece (maybe) lining on the inside so your legs get pretty warm in these. They did come with some spots in them which I was able to wipe off. And the belt has to be worn high waisted or the sides buckle out in an odd way. I would recommend these if you get them on sale but not for the full price.
I have not had a chance to wear this boot out, but I tried it on. Honey!!!! I have hella thighs! I was scared at first to get these and they not fit!!! These bad boys fit like a glove!! I got a size 11. The belt is a little loose and goes like under by boobs, which I don’t like. It’s a really long belt strap on the sides, but finally finding a boot to go this high up my thighs, I’ll work it out!!
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
