ok, so here's the drill. I looked up and down in the forum, reference thread, pretty much everywhere I can find info on the Bianca. I just located 2 stores that have a brand new shipment on Nude Patent Bianca's. Now I know most of you that have the Bianca has gone either half or one full size down. I had tried on a Camel Patent Bianca before in the 37.7, btw, I'm an 8.5 naturally, but I found it so painful in the toebox area and I know that part will eventually give. Also I see some of you have complained about it stretching so much that your feet just comes out of the shoe. My problem specifically is when I was about to order a 37.5 or 8, I was told by the sales at both location that Louby has been making his shoes more tts and that I should go with a 38.5 my original size since the shoe won't be giving that much. The saleslady at one store was so nice that she said she tried on the shoe in her natural size and it's tts for her and asked me again if I was sure I wanted to get the 38 instead of my true size. Now, i'm totally confused and indecisive at this point not knowing if maybe the sizing has changed from the previous season Bianca's or if they just aren't aware at how much the shoe stretches after wear. I trust so much info in this forum and know you guys would be able to give me the best input possible so that I endup making the right purchase. Please help me in anyway possible.....thanks so much to you all!!!
I wear a UK size 8 which is a 41. I have Bianca in metallic Rouge and found they are almost TTS slightly big but not enough to go down a size. The only shoe I have gone down in size is the Pigalle 120 in which I take a 40, I have had to go up to 42 in some shoes too.
thanks kisenian and rockvixen....i'm so torn...i still can't makeup my mind on the 37.5 or 38 damn....anyone else here that can give me some advice? anyone that has purchased Bianca's within the past month? do you see any changes in sizing vs the old Bianca's? or is it the same? I will need to let the sales people know by today....I would really appreciate anyones help so that i can make the right move....thanks again
I can't really help you but here is a link to the CL sizing advice thread, maybe you should have a read through there and if you can't find the info that your looking for then ask the same question there! Hope it helps you!
i got mine in TTS (peacock color from last season) but i use heel grip, i also put a couple of blister band aids on each foot (to prevent rubbing) which also helps fit the shoe better (makes it tighter) i have worn my biancas probably no more than 4x and it hasnt stretched but i did a lot of sitting. i dont think i could have size down, it will be too tight on the toe-box
