(The straps sit above the ankle, but I was taking photos of my recent shoe purchases at the time, so I just quickly slid them on.)
Good find! I likey! They also look very Guiseppe Zanotti IMO. Who's the designer?

They're by Pelle Moda. (I buy a lot of their shoes.)

I like Zanotti too, but he's another one that runs super small.
I ordered these shoes back in 2005:

I couldn't wait to get them and when they arrived, I knew by the size of the box that those "42s" were never gonna' fit! They were really tiny!

Those are SUPER cute!! Wish I could wear them, but I'd probably break an ankle...

I love the strappy sparkly shoes!! I will have to check out that designer.

On a more daily casual note, I want to find these.

Reviving an old thread.....quick question-

So if I'm a size 10 I should order a 41?? Or does it just depend on the designer?

When you are talking about European designers you want to order a 41 if you are a size 10. Most ofthem tend to run small. I wear the same size & I have to order a 41. The only Erupean designers that *sometimes* run true to size on shoes are Armani & Prada. I have size 40's in both of these designers that fit me when my feet arent swelling.Guesippi Zanotti I found ot be a toss up but mostly running small. But when you are talking about Manolo Blahniks Jimmy Choos Christian Louboutin, Chanel, Gucci, Sergio Rossi, Roberto Cavalli, Burberry, Fendi,Dior, Dolce & Gabanna, even Marc Jacobs who is an American designer you should buy a size bigger because they tend to run small. American Designers like Kenneth Cole, Kate Spade Coach & Michael Kors I have found run true to size.
