I bought this a month ago and the shoe is so beautiful, but you definitely need to size down. Since it's a sock boot there's no support AT ALL around your ankle. I'm size 6.5 and I always buy a 7 in heels, but it felt like 1 or even 2 sizes too big. My ankles were just wobbling around the whole night. I wish I could wear these boots because they look so hot! I would recommend these shoes... but definitely try them on in store and walk around in them to find the right fit!
