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 love these shoes however, they fit a little snug. I used a hair dryer to expand the shoe and it fits like a glove now. Some of the stones fell off when I received my order but I still loved the shoes. Used some glue to reapply the stones.
Great shoe fits true to size, not big like some commenters claim. Soo shiny I love them, can’t wait to wear with a light jean!
I purchased these to wear with many outfits and I knew it would add a little sparkle instead of being plain jane. I love them and have received many compliments.
I’ve ordered the clear/transparent heel before and have alwahs found myself returning it because my foot was too wide or it was too uncomfortable. Some say boy a size up in heels such as this one to make it more comfortable but I feel no need to do that. This shoe however, exceeded all my expectations on my bday celebration. I love How the heel isn’t too high, the fit was just right and true to size, and it grabbed the attention of many. Overall the most important thing for me, was comfortability. I would rate this a 10/10.
The shoe is nice, the fit is great, true to size and very very confortable. But i wish the shoe had been made more "décolleté" for a sexier look. Unfortunately, it's not.
