Shoes That Run Small: Christian Louboutin

When clothes that fit are hard to find…wear beautiful shoes! There are many beautiful shoes that run small, which is good news for those of us with tiny feet. For those of us with a small and narrow shoe size, Christian Louboutin will keep us looking chic and stylish with classic styles and that irresistible red sole.

Many of Christian Louboutin’s shoe styles run nice and small, so if you’re a size 4.5 (Euro 34.5), you might be able to fit some size 5’s (Euro 35) with a few strategically placed shoe pads. But if you’re smaller than a size 5, fear not, because Christian Louboutin makes sizes 4 and 4.5.

Christian Louboutin size 5’s are available in high end department stores and online, but that size goes fast, so jump on them quickly. Sizes 4-4.5 are available in Christian Louboutin boutiques, and are often available for special order, so call a boutique and ask! And if that’s still not small enough, you can get a custom made “last” of your foot and have the shoes specially made just for you (at a cost of about $3,000, ouch!).

Note: Patent leather styles fit smaller than regular leather styles, and stretch less, so you might be able to size a 1/2 size up if you normally wear a hard to find size.
