Please note that many of the AKIRA labeled dresses lean toward a body conscious fit.

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 am getting married on May 16, 2020 and ordered these fabulous beauties with 2-day shipping. They arrived on-time and match my dress and bling bouquet ensemble perfectly! The box and shoes were very "warm" to the touch when I opened them (Las Vegas Living) and the clear straps were actually melted together and I couldn't get them unbuckled :( They are super super comfortable and actually have some "give" to them because the plastic is soft and pliable. The craftsmanship is impressive and they are very sturdy and the heel height is not too high. I was a little worried about the 5' heel without a platform, but these are very comfortable. I will also suggest ordering a half size smaller then you normally wear because of the "stretchy" plastic. I will be returning the pair I ordered and ordering another pair because they are just that fabulous and I must have them for my wedding day!!!
LOVE LOVE these shoes OMG!! They are the perfect Birthday or Special Occasion shoe! And they're actually comfortable. You will surely turn heads in these!
I LOVE LOVE LOVE these babies so much!! I saw this shoe before some place else and couldn’t afford them AF the time and when I finally could, they sold out and left me heartbroken. When I saw they came around again in Akira, I knew it was meant to be and couldn’t miss my chance again. I’m wearing them for my birthday dinner at the end of the month (Nov 30) and it’s going to be a SLAY. Stay tuned.
They are very pretty and comfy. Returned because theres no holes for circulation so they get foggy
I've been eyeing those for months!! My size was sold out and thank god they restocked!!! OMG! This is the first clear shoe I have ever wanted to acquire and so lucky to get one!. Feels comfortable- although heels feel littttle unsecured, I hope I can wear them without any problem.
So far I am amazed how sexy and elegant they make my aide feet look like.
