Do they run a half size or a whole size small? I generally wear a 39 european or a 9 american so does that mean if I buy choo,louboutin,etc that I need a 40 or a 39.5? Thanks:shame:

I only have one pair of Choos, they're a size 40 (US 10). I tried on the 39 and they smooshed my toes. I also have a pair of Burberry sandals that are a size 40. Going up a size might be your best bet :biggrin:

It depends and people seem to have different responses.

Everyone seems to agree that Jimmy Choos run half a size small when I think it's the exact opposite. Chanel also runs half a size bigger for me, as does Guiseppe Zanotti.

It totally varies from designer to designer,and from style to style.From what I have...

*Jimmy Choo is said to run small;I find they run true to size.

*Marc Jacobs very reliably runs a half size small. However,I recently tried on some ballet flats which were a half size large.

* Gucci...half size large.

*Prada and Miu Miu...half to full size large

*Moschino...true

*Chloe...true

*Costume Nationale..true

I have no Manolos or Louboutins...can't find them here.

I'll update if I think of any more.

I definitely think it depends on the shoes. Everyone else has posted some pretty reliable information, but at the end of the day, it is best to try on the shoes and treat them individually. I've had to go up and down within the same brands.

Good luck!

Louboutin makes size 34.5, but it's pretty rare. They tend to run small, though the smaller sizes seem more TTS.
