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 was Very hesitant about buying these, but honey these are from the shoe
Before I ordered this bootie, I was a bit hesitant, partly because of the PVC material and partly because I was concerned they would be on gaudy side or cheaply made.
However, when they arrived, not only was I happy with the material quality but found them to be well constructed. They really are quite beautiful -- even more than in the photos depict. Additionally, reviews recommend that consumers purchase a larger size as this item tends to run small. I took a chance and ordered my usual size and found the fit, for me, to be more true to size. In fact, the fit is slightly larger which is good news for me as they allow room for shoe cushions. Overall, I am very pleased with this purchase. They definitely won't be every day shoes for me, but I will proudly wear them for special occasions. Can't wait!
Do to the plastic are there ventilated holes to keep them from fogging up once your feet starts to sweat?
I am obsessed! I Love Love Love these Booties! They're absolutely beautiful! I definitely highly recommend them. Although the heel height is not 4". They are more like 4 1/2" which is why I gave 4 stars instead of 5. Fortunately my shoe repair guy says he can cut the heels down 1/2". I'm so excited! I can hardly wait to wear them.
Can someone tell me how these shoes run (e.g. small, normal, large)?
