    I'm a US 8.5 and wear a Lanvin 7. The toe was a tad roomier than I expected but if I had gone with a 6, I'm sure it would have been too tight. Width on a 7 is perfect for me though.

    It might be my comprehension skills are really bad, but I'm pretty sure me and bduece are saying the same thing, that they run 1.5 sizes large and that the ones you want will fit you?

    No. I'd say a little less than that. It probably wouldn't bother most people but I'm quite anal with shoe size which is probably why it's noticeable to me. It doesn't help that I have wide feet. I'm fine with it though. My advice would be to try it on first but if that's not possible, going with the 7 seems the best bet.

    yeah, im super picky on how shoes fit too, which is why i have been mulling over this purchase for the past few days. my foot measures slightly over 8.5 (closer to 9) but im a 8.5 in most us shoes. but you guys are right, its my only option. thanks again.

    You may have to get over super pickyness, but given your size, the 7 is the only way to go
