Demonia Sizing?

Hey Lolis~
I was shoe-shopping for a retro Lolita outfit, and I found these reaallly cute TUK shoes. These to be precise. Anyways, I made the order and a today I got refunded because my size was out of stock. (Damn!) They were the perfect ones, too. I looked and looked everywhere that I knew that sold TUK shoes, and no place sold these specific ones.
I finally looked for some other similar ones, and I found these by Demonia. I actually like these better since it doesn't have the white trim, but I'm really unsure about buying Demonia, especially online, because I've had so many sizing problems. I'm a US8, and I had to find out the hard way that Demonia runs large. Next time I ordered some Demonia maryjanes, I ordered a size 7, but I ended up having to sell them because they were still about half a size too large and thus very hard to walk in. Since then I've skirted around buying Demonia like the plague, but I don't really have the time or the patience to wait for TUK to restock my size, especially since they don't have an option of contacting me when they do.
Well anyways, I was kind of taken aback when I read here on the page saying that these shoes ran small and that I should order a size up! I'd heard from others on here that Demonia ran small, but I always ordered according to personal experience.
So I was wondering, does Demonia maybe run large in certain types of shoes and small in others? Or even better, would anyone have these particular shoes and know if they run large or small?
Thank you!
