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.
If you are uncertain about a particular style, please contact our customer service team by phone at 1-866-477-2299 during regular hours M-F 9:00AM-6:00PM CST or by email at [email protected].
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.
These boots did not disappoint! The fit is true to size and they are comfortable.
I got a power trip to moment I put these on. Like hot damn. If I could wear these to my dissertation defense, I would. The fabric along the length of the boot is pretty warm, which is great for me because I am always cold.
I also got really good customer service when ordering these boots when trying to pick a size, so that was dope.
I'm one of those women who is blessed with the thick thighs and I must say these boots are amazing and AKIRA blew me away with total satisfaction. I'm 5' 4" and 175 lbs and wear a size 7 1/2 shoe. These boots fit me perfectly. I was very surprised at the amount of stretch these boots offer. I look forward to buying more :)
THEY ARE EVEN BETTER IN PERSON
My wife has been looking for some thigh high boots for her birthday coming up. She's about 5'7 so every thigh high boot she gets is about knee high. We got these and they worked out great. The belt isn't attached so you can replace it with w/e belt you want. The straps that come up on the side are thin enough so that you can tuck them in your boot and wear the boots with a dress or whatever you want. Very sexy.
