i'm a five and i'm fine in a five. hth. smile i don't think you'd want them to be small tbh.

You need to order a size smaller, I couldn't keep the original boats shoes on my feet.

I am a size 7, and the lady in the shop said that I should go a size smaller. and they fit much better. The 7 was very floppy.

i wonder if it depends on the style, then? mine have toe posts.

I'm normally between a 5 and 5.5 in normal shoes and get 38 in Birkies.

Yes, buy a 5/38.

I'm a size 5 but I buy a 4/37 inthe Madrid (of which I have 5 pairs grin)

hmmm maybe I should go and try them on in real life before getting them,. just in case

depends on the length of your toes!! If you have short stubby toes you might prefer a size smaller than your normal size - but if you have normal or long toes go for the same as your normal size!

I am a 40 but I wear 39 in berkies and can even wear my daughter's 38s now that she has worn them in!

don't make the mistake a lot of people do and have your toes sticking out over the cork bed

not a good look
I'd try a pair on before your buy I think

I am 5.5 and wear 38

I just got lovely purple patent ones from Amazon that I ordered in MAY!!! Well worth the wait though. I ordered my normal size, and now that they're here, I could do with a size smaller, but I've waited so long that I'll wear them regardless.

oooh well i was going to order from Amazon!!! so maybe I won't, because I want them now lol.

as for my toes. well, I think they're normal size hehe

im a 37 and buy a 36, you should have about half an inch gap at the end.
irks me when i see women with there toes right to the end, and heels hanging over flip flops.
