yup. repetto sizing is pretty random. From what I've experienced, the patent leather ones are more troublesome with sizing. I'm usually a sz 6 - 6.5. My leather ballet repettos are 6.5 and fit me just fine to a tad large bc of the stretch. The patent ones I've tried, I had to go to a sz 7 for sure!
I just received a pair of tory burch eddie flats. they're elasticized. very comfy!! they have a lot of cushion inside unlike my lanvin flats and they're very flattering. I have an insanely wide foot, too. like 4.5 inches across where the ball of my foot is.
I finally got Coach shoes, flats, and I have to recommend them for wide feet. Get your true size. I might avoid shoes trimmed in patent around the foot opening, KWIM? That felt tight on me with one pair.
I have somewhat wide feet. I tried on some Bloch ballet flats and they were a really good fit for me. I sadly didn't buy them as they didn't have the colour I wanted in my size, but at least I know know what size I want in that style. I'd recommend giving them a try. They look really cute on, too.
I love Bloch!!I just got a pair of Tods ballet flats and they seem to work great too!! Balenciaga are ok too...Lanvin are ok if you have a narrow heel...Georgina Chapman makes exceelent ones too...Bottega Veneta are good...If you like Martin Margiela the Tabi flats are really comfortable if you like somethig edgy...and my favorite are Alaias!! So comfortable!!! Sorry for the ramble but I am looking at my flats as I type this!!!
I have a wide toe spread and French Sole 'Sloop' flats are the best ballet flats I've ever worn. They feel like house sleepers but of course they're WAY cuter. The suede outer (there's also soft leather) and suede lining paired with the rubber sole makes them super comfy. I swear by the leopard prints ones. I love.
