Just saw your last post. What is w even? He must have pulled that from something. Also... dont use outsole measurements to divine shoe sizes.
1. Yes the tagged size is crazy off. a 10 UK in Jil usually corresponds to like an 11.5-12 US from what I've heard, and this thing would be best for a US 8-9. SO FAR OFF
2. I did go by measurements, and outsole measurements between my other shoes are pretty remarkably consistent. This one was close enough for me to give it a shot.
3. I wasn't necessarily surprised by them not fitting (it was admittedly a gamble), but that they were actually way too small instead of being too large.
