has any one bought Benjamin Adams shoes for their wedding, I have found a pair that i love but no one seems to have them in stock which means i will have to order them online, so i'm just wondering what the sizing is like, as in is a size 6 a size 6, cos you know how some shoes are a size bigger or smaller, O:|

I think there is a difference between UK and US shoe size. Click into the attached link. ... Shoes.html You'll see when you choose size (you have to select a colour first), the choices include: Small (UK3-4), EU 36-37 US 5-6 Medium (UK4.5-5.5), EU 37.5-38.5 US 6.5-7.5 Large (UK6-7) , EY 39-40 US 8-9 Extra Large (UK7.5-9) EU 40.5-42.5 US 9.5-11 It seems theres a 2 size difference between UK and US shoe sizes, so as a UK size 5 I'd have to order a US size 7. I'm not sure on this, and I'd say it definitely depends on the shoe and where it is made. I sent an e-mail last week to one of the US shoe internet providers, but I've yet to hear back. I'd advise you do the same before you order. Alternatively try to find somewhere here that stocks them to try them on before you order them. Has anyone else here had experience of ordering shoes on the internet? I'm planning on getting 2 pairs of Pink by Paradox shoes. (Along with this pair of comfy pumps for later on in the night...) :) [img:rsm2018o][/img:rsm2018o] [img:rsm2018o][/img:rsm2018o] [img:rsm2018o][/img:rsm2018o]

They are comfy but not super comfy. I did change in different shoes later in the night but I would normally do that at any wedding. Have to agree they are very pricy & a bit sorry I didn't try to soucre a 2nd hand pair. But Hindsight is a great thingg

Elizajane, they are my shoes too! Bought them on Ebay for wait for it £12.00. I normally take a 4, these were a 5 & I thought I'd take a chance for £12.00. They are a tiny bit big but perfect with an insole. Hope the picture works...first try at posting a pic!! [attachment=0:28qbacpv]my shoes.jpg[/attachment:28qbacpv]
