@Mrs_Harmer_to_be:  love!!! I have found that they have a narrow toe box, can you return if they’re too small? Or go to a nearby store to try on? Or send them to me and I’ll squeeze my feetsies in ’em πŸ™‚

Just read the Saks website reviews for that pair of shoes and it seems like they may run small.  I own one pair of CL’s and they fit a half size smaller than my normal size.  So, I’d suggest sizing up a half size.  Also, secret tip is to be wary of the red dust bag that comes with it.  I’ve read on PurseForum that they sometimes bleed onto the shoes (fine if the shoes are dark but you wouldn’t want to chance it on wedding shoes!).  I hope that helps and that you enjoy those gorgeous heels.

For me, the the heel is always wide so I tend to buy a half size down. You may not have to worry about that issue with the T-strap. 

Can you order two sizes and return one?

Mine have run true to size.

It depends on the shoe. Mine are different sizes.

I usually wear a 38, and mine are a 38. They fit well enough, but they are definitely snug in the toe. These shoes run narrow. They’re made for cute women with cute feet (not me) but I wear them anyway. πŸ™‚

If you do buy them, here’s another tip. The red sole will wear out much more quickly than you hope it will. If you wear them outside, at ALL, it will wear out within a night or two. They look awful when the bottom turns all brown. I searched everywhere for a place that could spruce them up. I settled on Pasquale Shoe Repair. They’re located in Los Angeles, but they have a system through their website for shipping your shoes to them adn they’ll ship them back. After you wear down the red sole (which you will do quickly unless you stay on carpeted floors), send them to Pasquale. Unfortunately, the rubber sole they replace it with isn’t EXACTLY the right shade of red, but it is darn close. It’s much less noticable than a brown sole, and it lasts for a really long time. I checked around and this is really the most reputable business for this type of work. 

Good luck and welcome to the Loubie Lovers Club!

I have 2 pairs, the opened toe pair were very true to size, but my PT’s (Pointy toe) pair seem to be at least a half size bigger. But I am also one of those “in-between size” peeps. If you ask my shoe size, it’s a size 8, since 7th grade. But I’ve gained and lost weight the last couple of years, so now some of my favorite size 8 shoes are too big, I have to go with a 7 1/2. Urgh….so difficult…if you’re gonna spend the money, you want them to fit right.

I just ordered these.  I’ve never had Louboutins before so I orderd my size and a size up.  I’m SOOO excited.  I’m not wearing these to the wedding (because I’ll be taller than my FI) but definitely to the rehearsal. 

OP – those shoes are sooo pretty.

Sorry, this question is a little off topic, but does anyone know what model name/number are the Louboutins that Christina Aguilera wore in the movie Burlesque?  One of my coworkers wants a pair for her wedding in May, and since I am totally wobbly on anything over a kitten heel and will probably be wearing flats to my wedding, I don’t have the faintest idea.  I thought perhaps someone who is really familiar with Louboutins might know. Thx.
