I usually wear a 7-1/2 but they don't come in half sizes so I ordered an 8. The 8 is a bit tight, but I was able to use a shoe stretcher to get them to feel more comfortable. They definitely run small, so get a size larger than you need and stuff the toes. I think the design of the pointy toe makes them seem smalller. But they are very well made, the design is fabulous, and I am excited about wearing them this week!
