A very quick note - which I am sure shoe-a-holics everywhere will already know....Check sizing BEFORE bidding! Designers vary ALOT as does Italian/UK/USA sizing - so check! As an example, Jimmy Choo makes 'true' UK sizing in 99% of all cases. I have several pairs of UK size 4 Jimmy Choo's which are also a perfect size 37. Very occasionally - and obviously depending on the style, this varies by a half size. The same applies to Chanel. Christian Louboutin, Prada and Miu Miu are always small - so a 37/UK 4 will fit a standard size 36 or UK 3 in most cases. Nine West are usually generous and if buying from the USA, pay attention to any widths given - they may make your purchase very comfortable - or a tight squeeze. Always ask the seller for true insole and width measurements - then take account of the style - many sellers will not accept returns if you have simply ordered/bought your 'usual' size.
