killing them softly
When asking for sizing advice in this thread, please include AS MUCH INFORMATION as possible,
so we can better help you.


Some info that could help us help you:
• Your US size in non-CL brand shoes (Nine West, Aldo etc.)
• Width of feet (narrow, average, or wide)
• What CL’s you already have (or have tried on) and what size they are
• The style you are asking about and what season it is from. This is helpful because the sizing changed for CLs in 2009.
• Please include a pic or link if you’re unsure of the style name."


In this guide, True to Size (TTS) means that it is the same as your US size. So a US 7 = 37 in a TTS CL shoe. HOWEVER, you may need to make adjustments if you have wider feet and/or if you are in the larger size range. In general, sizing for those in the smaller size range (abbrev. SSR; about 36.5 and under) is more TTS than sizing for those in the larger size range (about 38.5 and above). Further, CL sizing has recently changed, and certain styles (e.g., Ron Ron, VP) are running more TTS or even large when compared to before.

Here is a decently up to date list, in alphabetical order, of the size you should order for your CLs. This sizing is subjective and generally the consensus of most people in here but not everyone's feet are the same. The best way to get sizing advice is to go to a boutique or store and try CLs on. When that is not possible, the ladies here will do everything they can to help you with sizing advice!

Remember that this is a guide, and no two feet are the same. CL sizing depends on many factors, including width of feet, length of toes, smaller or larger size range, material, and personal preference (e.g., some prefer to buy shoes tight and stretch to fit, while others prefer to buy them looser and pad to fit).

It is completely normal for shoes to feel tight at first, especially in the toebox. For the most part, CL’s WILL stretch and break in with wear, but you may also try the sock trick or bring them to a cobbler to be professionally stretched. Please do a search for more stretching/comfort advice.

I think we should maybe start a fall/winter 09 and forward thread. things are running MUCH bigger now. Examples: Decollete's are running TTS and ron ron's are 1/2 size down. They told me at the boutique that they're trying to get them more in line w/the general sizing.

http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll...tab%3DWatching

I have no cl's : (. But I have ysl's. I wear a 9.5 in them, I can wear a nine but prefer 9.5 so there is no toe overhang. In non designer shoes I can wear a 9, any thoughts on this size for me? Thanks ladies.

OMG, I've seen these perfect boots: the Ariella Talon 120 from CL.
But I doubt about the size, because it's an Italian size.

I'm a US 7; that's European between 37 and 38. Which size should I choose; would 37,5 be good?
Does anyone own these; do they run big or small?

Thanks very much! You are all such CL experts

Love,
Monique from the Netherlands

How wide are your feet? If they are narrow or average width, 37.5 will probably work. If you have wide feet, you may need a 38.

You are probably a 40 in this style, depending on the width of your feet.

Monique- CLs are french sizing :) That's why they're/were a bit loco.

Sfgirl-I have a pair that is 1 size up from my tts and they are BIG. I use a heel pad, a footpetal and a whole pading. I think you could go tts (if you feet aren't wide) or 1/2 size up (like rilo said :))

I'll add my personal sizes here as well to join the others - I found this useful and hopefully others will as well!! I am a true US6, I have very few pairs of 36.5, with standard width feet and toes. I was between sizes on a few pairs.

Black Leather Insectika: 36.5 (now have some room in the back but toebox is snug)
Purple Suede Declic: 36.5
Black Sude/Red Piping Samira: 36
Silver Greasepaint Pigalle 100: 36.5 (I need a 36 though)
Black Patent Jolie Noeud Dorcet: 36
Luggage Armadillo: 36
Brown Python Privatita: 36.5
Blue Satin Very Noeud: 36.5 (could have also done a 36)
Black Ostich Leg Yotruche: 36
Blue Python Fontanette: 36.5 (could have also done a 36)
Blue Pony Hair Uncut: 36
Roccia Python Dillian: 37 (could have done a 36.5 but it would have been tight)
Platine Very Galaxy: 36
