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.
This is a beautiful and sexy shoe but the plastic design on the back made it impossible for me to wear all day. After about an hour the plastic on the back of the shoe had the back of my heal red and hurting. The shoe also runs a little big. I wear and purchased a size 9 and I think I would have been better off ordering an 8 1/2. I love the look of the shoe but unfortunately it’s a waste of money for me because I won’t wear them again because of the affects of the plastic design on the back.
I ordered two sizes larger, as per reading the other reviews about the back to add clear gel heel inserts. But could’ve gotten away ordering only one size larger. Bare in mind they are also a pointy shoe. Have yet to wear and already thinking about buying another. I hope they come up with a chunky heel too. Reminds me of Cinderella. Every lady should have a pair.
I loved this shoe, unfortunately I had to return it. I’ve had ankle surgery and it sometimes makes it very difficult for me to wear heals. This shoe was just a little to high for it to work for me. I wish you could make this heal and the one with rhinestones in a 2 1/2 inch heal. The shoe is absolutely beautiful. I bought the one with rhinestones for my granddaughter she has a party coming up and these will make her Ball gown standout even more.
These shoes are perfect. I took a star off because of the back of the shoe at the top pinches. It’s due to the plastic edge. So I cut the rest of the plastic even and put clear tape over it. Not ideal but the best I could come up. My feet are narrow and I’m normally a 9 so I purchased the 9. Fits great and the padding inside make this shoe very comfortable. I would recommend this shoe
These shows are just as cute as the picture and they are super comfortable, which is my main concern. Shipping was fast and packaging was great. The only issue I have is the back part that goes over the heel needs some kind of cushion as it was irritating my ankle and I had to buy some pads to make it better. Other than that... super comfortable... wore them all day.
