Heels

Shoe Sizing Between Manufacturers

Recommended Posts

Seen a nice pair of Aldo heels on Ebay,  I never bought a pair from Aldo so I have no idea how they size their heels.  I find Heels from New look, Faith and Next fit fine.  I take a uk9 wide but don't always buy in a wide sizing. The 1 pair from  I bought from Topshop run small.

I would agree that mostly ALDO tend to be accurate, even possibly a little generous. I did buy a very attractive ankle boot from them that came up a bit small, but to be honest, they were a very slim style and it may be I had them laced up a bit tight for that particular style. (I don't like loose shoes where my feet can slop around inside.)

 

Just to contract myself, I had/have listed on an auction site, a pair of ALDO high heeled courts marked/sold as UK 8. They are not an 8. In fact they are barely a 7. It's not just me. Several reviewers have commented they've had to go up a size. I can get them on -I sometimes take a 7 in a court shoe- but they would hurt after a while so I'm trying to move them on.

 

For the most part I've found Topshop/Dune/Lipsey tend to come up a half to a whole size small for me, and I have slim-ish feet. 

 

 

I think I've commented before, some brands don't even have the same sizing gauge between styles. Can't think exactly who I had in mind, though "Barratts" seems likely, and it meant/means ordering online is nothing less than a gamble. If the brand gets it wrong a couple of times, would you go back for a third try? I think not, which might help explain the demise of the brand. I've had similar failures with ASOS. Ordered shoes in a UK8 several times and had to return them. Yet I have some lovely block heeled ankle boots from them, in a UK7?

Might put an offer in next year as the listing still has 17 days to go. Thinking about they should fit fine,
