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 got these boots because I love all things sparkly and I love fringe!! I'm a performing artist and model, so I knew that these would be PERFECT for me! These boots definitely make a statement. As soon as I received them, I did photo shoot with these right away! I got soooo many compliments on these on my Instagram! I got a size 7 because 7.5 was sold out and I read that they were running big. They fit well. When you try them on,just make sure you're sitting down. You want to make sure that you position them correctly so that they zip up easily. As soon as you put them on, you will look like a star! I paired them with a pair of black shorts and a black top that had a sparkly collar to match the sparkle in the boots. They are pretty comfortable too for high heels. I highly recommend these. If you're thinking about them, GET THEM!!!! You won't be disappointed.
I was so excited to get these and they did not disappoint when I stepped out in them to dinner, they are stunning. However, to dance in them is another story. Unfortunately, they did not keep their shape and before the end of a night of dancing, started to slouch and not in a nice way, down my leg. Most of the evening I was trying pull them back up on my thigh but failed. The black suede/felt material comes a bit stiff so you would think would stay up and keep shape but they eventually lost their stiffness/shape and with no stretch and no ties or elastic to keep them up, they did not stay up. They may stay up if you are not too vigorous in your movements however if going dancing, expect they they will fall :-(
Beautiful boots, they will not disappoint. The heel is not extremely high so they feel very comfortable to walk in. I ordered a Size 8, which I usually wear in this brand, however they were too big so I am returning for a Size 7 1/2.
