I was going to pre-order the studded pair in black about 2 months ago from Satine, but the heel is too high! I've got 2 rugrats to run after and I also don't do well in high heels. Sigh...wish she had made a lower heel version. I'd be all over that!
Thanks for the heads up Mandi! :)) They're beautiful! xxTheresa
Aaaah alllllmost did, thanks indeed for the heads up. Those black ones.. Or in cream... I'm too much of a sissy to pre order but I hope I'll find them in stores! Did you pre order a pair?xx
Hey Lucy, I haven't ordered a pair. I'm attempting to 'be good' plus there are some things I'm waiting for that are due to go on sale any day so I'm putting some funds towards those. Your sale buys encouraged me!
my God, I'm dying over these!!
LuisaviaRoma is killing me with all those pre-order items! Can't pre-order anything, so will have to wait and see what will make it to the shelves I'm afraid. :) Thanks so much for the heads up Mandi, you are the best! xx Kayin
Hi ladies -I'm new to you blog - love it! - and need your advice about sizes at Luisaviaroma. I know I am a FR39 in Isabel Marant boots. But, I noticed on the Luisaviaroma pre-order site that the sizes are listed in Italian sizes. The chart says a FR39 = an IT38. So, do I get the 38? So confused and don't want to make a mistake!THX!!
Hi there, I know it's very confusing. A few of my friends contacted Luisaviaroma and asked and were told that the size listed in the size that is marked on the shoe/box so if you are normally a 39 I would order the 39 (that's what I've been told). I hope that helps xx
hi mandi -thanks so much! They should really make that more clear at Luisaviaroma! Especially since you can't make changes to your order once placed. I'm glad I asked you first!thx!e
My pleasure Emma. A heap of ladies I know were concerned too
Hi Mandi -I just heard back from Luisaviaroma and they confirmed that the size listed on the site is the size listed on the sole of the shoe. So that's good to know!Also, I wore my Marant Manly fringed boots just once and the soles look pretty beaten up. Do you generally get rubber soles put on your Marant shoes? I never have, but I'm concerned that at this rate the soles will wear out!!thanks!
I'm glad that Luisaviaroma have confirmed it. At least you can sleep easy knowing you ordered the correct size.I put the topi soles on all of my shoes and as soon as they wear down I get them replaced ASAP. It's definitely the best way to preserve them. I would recommend getting your boots done as soon as you can, mainly because when you walk, the sole near the tip of the toe tends to wear down really quickly. Better to protect it from getting any wear. With topis soles as long as you keep getting them down, your shoes should last ages.
Ok, now i'm worried, i ordered an "italian" 39 since i'm a french 40I've also e-mailed LVR about this and they confirmed me they use italian sizes for the IM boots !Meaning that i would receive a french 40 if i ordered an italian 39...
I'm sure you will be fine if you have sizing advice direct from LVR I wouldn't worry. They would be the best ones to tell you how they mark the sizes on the internet. Just double check :)
