Frequently Asked Questions

What Size Should I Order?

When buying an Open-toe high heel shoes, it is normally recommended to buy the same size you wear in a flat shoe. When buying closed toe high heels, it is normal to purchase 1/2 size larger than your normal flat shoe size. All shoes on this site are only available in whole sizes, please order the next largest size if you normally wear a half size. (i.e. Size 7 = Size 8) These tips are taken from industry standards and should only be used as a guide for buying the proper size. However we will not be held responsible if you do not purchase the correct size. Buyers should be familiar with their particular preference for sizing.

How do you convert a man's shoes size to a lady's shoes size?

Shoes fit differently. Our best rule of thumb is a two-size increase. (i.e. - A man's 9 converts to a woman's 11.)

Are your sizes listed in women's size or men’s?
All of our shoes are listed in US women's size UNLESS otherwise stated. (ie., it will state 'Men's Sizes' above the numerical options.

Patent (Pat), has a very shiny, almost mirror like appearance. PU, short for polyurethane, is a semi-shiny to non-shiny man made material designed to look like leather.
