Pleaser shoes and shoe sizing question

I'm in love with these shoes by Pleaser, but I've heard a lot of people complain that Pleaser shoes run really, really small. Any truth to this?

I'm usually an 8 or 8.5, but I'm wondering if I need to order a 9 or even a 10.

Also, for shoes that come in "small," "medium," and "large" rather than an 8, 9, etc, what do you recommend - going up a size or sticking with what you'd usually be? I know it depends on the brand/shoe, but I'm wondering how accurate this type of sizing really is. I don't know if I should get a medium or large... I'm looking at this shoe, btw.

If they're anything like their sister company Demonia, then yes their sizes run small. Check if they have a size chart if not, go with your regular size so if they're too small you can exchange for another size. Hope I helped.

I have a pair of boots from pleaser that I got in my regular US size (10.5/11 womens) and they fit perfectly.

For those style shoes, it could go either way. I wear a 6.5 always, and my most recent pair of Pleaser shoes were a size 7, and they fit perfectly. I do also have a pair of boots though that are an 8 and I can wear them just fine. I don't think you'll need to go to a size 10, but if you wear 8.5 more often then 8 then I'd say go for the 9 ^^

Just make sure to go over the stores fine print on returns and exchanges, and make sure their terms are agreeable with you if you end up with a size too big or too small.

i agree that the demonia shoes are pretty true to size. i can't vouch for pleaser, though.

also, for the small, medium, large shoes, i would go for a large, since if you do wear an 8.5 sometimes, it'd be better to get a 9/10, in my opinion...

I wear a 8.5 (US), and I bought a 9, and it fits perfectly.

BTW, Pleaser and Demonia are just diffrent labels of the same brand:

From what I've heard, they're all the same.

Did you buy the same shoe I linked to?

It's funny - everyone has a different opinion. A few people said they fit true to size, some said they run small, and some said they run large. XD

I have those shoes. I actually found that they ran a little large, I'm a size ten, bought a size ten, and I have to stuff the toes in them. They're great shoes though!

Also, for the record, they're actually Demonia. Part of the same company as Pleaser, though.

Ooh, really? May go with the 8, then. Wish they came in half-sizes!

I bought a pair of Pleaser boots. They were size 8 (I'm usually a size 7.5) and they fit after I put in an insole.

Most of my shoes are pleasers. I find they run a size small.

I wear an Au 7 and a US8 in pleasers is perfect fit.

the round "bump" toe shoes seem to run a little larger. The high platform stripper heels a little smaller. I think the others run rather true to size.

I have a pair of Demonia shoes and they were a little tight at first, but after I wore them for a few hours they loosened up to the perfect fit. For refrence, I wear a size 9 (and ordered a size 9).
