I’m looking to purchase Louboutin evening sandals for our wedding, and I’ve made trips to Saks, Nordstroms, and Bloomingdales with no luck on trying on shoes for size.
I hear that Louboutins are known to have erratic sizing, but I’m hoping one of you can help. The shoes I’m looking at are evening sandals (straps, not pumps), about 3.5 inches high. I believe they are satin and leather material.
Any clues on what size I should be ordering? They have an exchange policy, but I’m hoping to go through less hassle by asking for advice by those in the know. 🙂 I’m a size 6.5-7 normally. I’m thinking of ordering the 7, but I wanted to ask first.

It’s strange that Saks doesn’t have Louboutins to try on for sizing. I would also recommend Barneys or Bergdorff if there is one near.
In my experience, Louboutin sizing depends on the shoe. I have both sizes 37.5 and 38, though normally I am a 7.5. For strappy sandals though, you have more room for error, so a 6.5 should be fine for you.

i thought so too! they have louboutins online, so i figured i could head out there to try on for size. i went to the one at south coast plaza in orange county (southern california). nordstroms said to try neiman marcus so i will stop by there sometime this week. thanks for the info! 🙂

Neiman Marcus carries Louboutins. I tend to round up (in your case, I would try size 7) since I think in general, they run small.

neiman’s has a ton of louboutins- if there is a neiman’s near you, i am sure they have something you can try on in a 36.5 or a 37.

They can run a little narrow. So for someone with wide feet (like me) I am usually a 36.5 in most shoes but I buy 37 in Louboutin. Mostly for the width. Though as someone posted earlier, the open toe strappy shoe is a bit more flexible (I ended up buying 36.5 in some peep toe sling back Louboutins I’m wearing at my wedding but would have preferred a 37).

I’m a 36.5, but in Louboutin i’m definately a 37–in their boots, heels, slingbacks, etc.

I tend to round up half a size- I’m a 8 (38 AAA) abd I go to 38.5 and sometimes 39.

I always go half size up in Louboutins. I’m a pretty solid 5 in most shoes but Louboutin’s, I always get 5.5.
