Beautiful wedding shoes!
I had been a bit apprehensive about the sizing and quality of these shoes due to some of the other customers' reviews. However, I am happy to say that they are perfect for me!
Normally my size ranges from 7.5-8, so I ordered these in a 7. They fit like a glove and are so comfortable--the strap over the toes is firm but has plenty of flexibility. As far as I can tell, they look and feel very well-made and durable. They do seem like they could stain or scuff easily, though.
Anyway, bottom line is that even though they're expensive, they're truly beautiful and perfect for a wedding.

Beautiful shoe, definitely runs large
I contacted a BHLDN stylist for advice, and was told that the shoe runs "true to size". However, after reading the reviews, I decided to order a half size down and I'm glad I did. The shoe definitely runs a bit larger, and I am always, always a size 8 but the 7.5 fit me which is very unusual for me. I guess it's because there's very little material to this shoe, so there's a lot of room for your foot.
I have wide feet but found these to be very comfortable. The jewels are absolutely beautiful and arrived in perfect condition. Very happy with my purchase.

I bought these to wear for my wedding. Really beautiful in person - from the front, all you see is pearls. Seem comfortable, though I haven't worn for long periods yet.

Good option for a lower heeled pump
I ordered these shoes in an 8 (size I always wear) after searching for a heel less than 3 in heel for months with much difficultly. My experience with the sizing was that they were the right fit lengthwise - but way too wide - so much that they would fall off if I walked in them. I do have narrow feet and solved this problem by buying a sticky insert that I applied base of the shoe. They do offer limited support as you can tell, but I figure it's worth it for the classy look! My only complaint is that I live near a BHLDN store and had to order online (hence wait the 10 business days# because they don't carry these shoes and many others in the store. The reasoning I was given is that brides-to-be don't want to buy shoes that have been tried on!? I thought that was pretty ridculous #who are these brides?? and what does BHLDN do with returned shoes??) but it only took an extra 10 days...just something to keep in mind if you are in a rush.
