Ok, I am confused. I used to think that if I am an 8.5 US that I would be a 38.5 in Euro sizing. The first time I ordered CL without trying them on first I ordered in 39 (thinking I was sizing up) and they were way too small. When I took them to be stretched the cobbler told me it was no wonder they didn't fit since 8.5 is a 39.5 Euro. I thought he was mistaken. I wear 38.5 in Miu Miu but now I hear they are cut big. Help! I am so confused. I did an internet search and I found that most of the shoe size conversion webpages I found say a US 8.5 is a European 39. So to summarize my confusion. Shoe guy claims US 8.5=Euro 39.5 Zappos says US 8.5=Euro 38.5 About 4 or 5 webpages I found say US 8.5=Euro 39 Who is right? I know the best way to know is to measure your foot and then get the dimensions of the shoe. I'm really wondering about standard sizing. TIA.
