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.
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.
shoes is fire.....and good fit
These boots are definitely a SHOW STOPPER! they scream watch out baddie coming through. I a agree with previous review wear comfy socks. The stretch is EVERYTHING! i cant wait to wear these. I also have a wider foot and wear all my heels in a size 11. These i did purchase in a size 11 they were about a half size big nut its okay! i plan to wear with a thicker sock.
I ordered these boots back in October to wear to a Mary J Blige concert (you can't go see the queen of boots without a fly pair to wear) and these were fantastic. They were perfectly stretchy and I was able to dance for hours. One note, for those who are short(I'm 5'3) they may be a bit long on the side, I would suggest trying them with a different belt than they come with that sits high on the waist and a pair of comfortable socks because the bottoms are hard. Definitely a show stopper. I would tell everyone bold enough to cop a pair.
I was able to buy a half size down. This boot is amazing, definitely a must have. Im 5’5” 240 and it went up my lege with no problem.
