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.
For the white boots, there’s 2 different types of boots. Off white and the rest of the pics are bright white with black lining and trimming. Which boots out of the two are you guys selling?
I had boots very similar that I got from a cute boutique in LA a few years back. Earlier this year I went on a trip and lost my carry on item that had my boots in them. After a month I got my bag back but out of everything that was in there, my boots were missing. I was DEVASTATED! LUCKILY Akira came in clutch as always. These boots are 110x better than my original boots. They're comfortable, cute, and go with everything. I highly recommend grabbing a pair in both colors!
These boots caught my eye but I did worry that they might be uncomfortable. Soooo happy with them definitely go up a half size as recommended. They are chic and comfy !!
The boot is very cute. Looks just like the pictures. They're comfortable and they fit just fine. I always order an 1/2 up from my size and that was fine. To me the heel is a little high.
I love these booties they are so stylish and comfy but ladies make sure you size up! I usually wear a 10 but ordered a 11 and I'm glad I did.
