What's my size?
Popular questions regarding our shoe styles, answered.
Our pointed toe Vivienne flats offer a fashionable extreme toe length which exudes sass and power.
If your foot is normal to narrow width, please purchase your usual size. For any wider sized feet, we recommend sizing up half a size.
This style should fit snug upon trying on as the soft lambskin nappa leather softens upon just a few minutes of wear. We do not recommend you go up a size larger than necessary as they would not be easy to walk in after softening.

Footwear is manufactured with a "last". This is a plastic form that each manufacturer uses to create the shoe.
Similar to apparel, each brand and manufacturer has their own standards for sample sizing. The entire run of sizes and fit are created from the original sample size.
Another factor is the country of manufacture and origin as there is special sizing for UK, Italy, China, U.S, etc. Please refer to our shoe fitting chart on product pages if you are interested in learning more about the comparissions.
Most brands do their best to keep their sizing consistent. We do our very best as a small brand to do that but as every persons foot is completely different, we love offering shoe fitting advice! Please reach out if you need complimentary concierge shoe fitting assistance.
For feet that are wider than normal or width B, the classic heels offer a very soft supple upper that can accommodate many feet widths. This style runs true to size but if you have a wider foot, we suggest selecting 1/2 a size up.
Our Pierrette flat ankle strap sandals are also great as they do run slightly wider than normal. This style runs 1/2 a size large.
Our top selling style which accommodates almost all shapes and widths of feet is our pointed toe Vivienne flats. Because of the design of the shoe, we have found that 98% of our customers were happy with their purchase.

Learn about our footwear
Learn about womens leather footwear and how to care for them.
LOU.EARL works with the highest quality artisan shoemakers who love making footwear as much as we do!
We have made our fine leather footwear for women at artisanal factories in Los Angeles, California, and Venice, Italy.
Shoes made with leather outsoles are of higher quality and more expensive for several reasons. Not only is it a sustainable resource but leather is 100% free of plastics and is biodegradeable.
When wearing footwear that is made with a leather sole, you are essentially creating a custom pair of shoes for yourself. Over time, your comfort level in them will increase as the leather moulds and contours to the shape of your foot.
Leather soles can also be easily replaced at a shoe repair shop years after wear thus preserving the style for more years of stylish wear.
Leather is a natural and renewable resource of unsurpassed quality. It is sustainable and comes the earth's natural resources.
Leather has a very high durability rating. It prevents odor and offers breathability which most man-made materials cannot offer in footwear.
Genuine leather shoes last much longer than those made of synthetics and are an investment to the health of your feet, wardrobe, and lifestyle.
There are several leather repair moisturizers and cleaners on the market however, in order to risk damaging our fine leather footwear, we recommend taking your shoes to a shoe repair for any needed repairs. This is a very economical way to ensure that your high quality footwear remains its' best, and at the care of a professional.
If you require help finding a shoe repair in your area, please contact us for assistance and we'd be happy to guide you.
