Shopping online can be frustrating when it comes to finding the perfect fitting clothing piece or accessory. At shopAKIRA.com, accurate measurements and fit are important in order for our customer to find the perfect item.
The size charts are general guidelines for average measurements. Sizes will vary depending on designer, cut, style and fabrication. Most of our clothing will fit true to size unless otherwise noted. Our models are on average of 5'9 - 5'10 and wear a size small, size 2 - 4.
Please note that many of the AKIRA labeled dresses lean toward a body conscious fit.

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’m a petite girl and I could barely fit my shoes and could not zip them up! I’m athletic but this look isn’t for someone who doesn’t have straws for legs. I ordered these for Vday! Will def be getting her pumps tho!!! Love the look hate the fit.... buy up a whole size! :/
The quality of the shoe is great but Either my calf is too big or the shaft is too small....
I love them when will the black ones be back in stock
First of all I love akira, my red boots are beautiful but I couldn't get the zipper pass my arch. They pretty much look. Like the picture with a pretty shine! Sending back ordering another pair of boots!
I found this shoe and fell in love! It was the perfect color , right amount of sparkle , very dramatic , something that screamed I want all eyes on me . I was going to wear these with the red patent leather bralette and mini skirt I bought in store for my birthday! They only zipped halfway because tye measurements for this boot is for someone who legit wears like a 0-3 in bottoms .. I even took them to a shoe cobbler the get red suede added wear the zipper meets but he charged $180 thats like buying 2 more pairs of these boots.. Sad to say I have to return them , and I was soooo set on this outfit ! Definitely wish you guys would make a wide version . This boot is EVERYTHINGGGGG ! But only for a skinny girl .. I wear a medium or 8 bottoms so anyone wearing that size , unfortunately they wont work for you .
