I did a search already but didn't find anything, so I apologize if there's another thread like this!

I'd like to get some shoes from aldoshoes.com and have heard that they run a bit small. I'm a size 7 and am wondering if I should risk getting a 7 or if I should size up to an 8?

I tried a friend's flats from aldo in a 7 and they were def snug...do all of aldo's shoes run small?

TIA!

They run small and dont have half sizes.

I am a size 6 to a 6.5

I wear a 37 in Chanel, Louboutin, Lanvin, and 36.5 in Miu Miu, Stuarts etc..

In aldo shoes I wear a 7 in their boots HOWEVER

I wear a 6 in their heels- which are a big snug and I wear a 5 in their sandals.

It's really a toss up it depends on the style!

Their shoes also fit very weird. The 7 always fits me in length but my heels come out so I normally buy a 6 in heels and then have to get them stretched!

I wouldn't buy online I'd honestly try them on because it really depends on the style. If you show me a link of what you like I can probably tell you how they will fit

I'm a normal US size 6, and I wear size 6 in Aldo boots. Never tried their heels so I'm not sure of the sizing. My boots fit great, not too tight at all... Like Jenna said, I definitely recommend going and trying them on.

Their shoes run a bit big for me. I wear a size 6 for most of my shoes (including Christian Louboutin) but when it comes to Aldo, I wear a 5. Unless they're boots. Then I'm a size 6.

Always, always small for me!

With boots, I find myself sizing up 2 sizes.
With most shoes though, sizing up 1 should be enough.

But listen to the advice of Jenna. Specifically for Aldo, I would go into a store and try on the exact shoe I wanted. The sizes really aren't that predictable unlike many other brands.

Size is totally unpredictable - I'm a 37,5, in Aldo I range from 37 to 38, some 38 are really snug, some I have to use heel grips in...

Their sizing is pretty random, and when I used to wear them generally ran too small. I think the shoes weren't too small, but they seemed to have uncomfortable pinch-points which were more avoidable with a size up.

I generally think Aldo's fit is pretty poor, they're among the most uncomfortable shoes I've owned, I'm glad I don't own them anymore despite being good looking heels.
