Isabel Marant boots - true to size?

Seen a lovely pair in a sale online and wondered whether they are true to size? I have small but fat, flat feet (attractive...) and usually wear a 3/ 36.

I have a pair of the Dicker boots and the Bekett wedges and have found them both true to size. Which boots are you looking at?

If you're between sizes, I would size up Isabel Marant. I always feel they are on the smaller end of true to size.

To be completely unhelpful I would say it varies. I am a UK5 and always take a EU38 or IT38 and I have or tried Marant sandals, shoes and boots which are FR38 and fit perfectly. However I have one pair of trainers I had to get in a FR39 and I sent back some dickers in a FR38 last week which were too small. Currently awaiting the FR39. Which boots are you after?

On the smaller side of true-to-size is bang on. But I've never seen a pair of Isabel Marant shoes that lasted well. Terrible investment IMHO. I took some to a specialist designer shoe cobblers after three wears and he said "pretty much all her shoes are just designed to be worn indoors". Okay if we were talking jewelled slippers but these were ankle boots! My friend bought a pair of her boots with a thin leather sole and has never dared wear them.

Yeah I have to agree with @pistachiois50pmore re investment. I like my dicker boots but they are not amazing for the price and started to look tired quite quickly. If I was to do my time again I would have shopped around for a cheaper alternative. The wedges are better quality but I don't wear them as much.

I would concur that they are slightly smaller fit, I am a 4.5 and have size 5 in the Beckett wedge trainers, but I do also have an insole in them but it is very thin. They have lasted really well and still look new and I've had them for about 4 years. Wore them out clubbing too and they were fine with spilled drinks as long as you have suede protector on.

They're the Rowi boots. Her boots look amazing but I've not been close enough to peer at them in a shop yet. Thanks for all your helpful replies!
