Our expert tips to finding your best fit.
Every Sarah Flint shoe is handmade in Italy and is measured with standard Italian sizing. We recommend basing your sizing off your usual US shoe size in the chart below
This chart is a general recommendation of how our shoes fit, but we have provided style-specific fit recommendations on every individual product page on SarahFlint.com. Specific fit recommendations are listed under “Fit Notes.” All shoes are made on a medium-width last.
We are happy to send measurements for our styles as well. We recommend measuring from your heel to the longest tip of your toe. Measurements should be taken in centimeters to ensure accuracy.
Your shoes are designed to fit comfortably snug when you first try them on, as they will stretch in width with wear and mold to the shape of your foot. The shoes will stretch across the widest part of your foot as you break them in, but they will not stretch in the length. As our shoes are made from high quality leather, there is a brief break-in period to help the leather soften. To help break in your shoes more quickly, we recommend wearing them around your home with a thick pair of socks for two days. Be sure to try on your shoes at different times of the day to account for any natural changes that may occur.
How to tell if your shoe is too small:
- If the shoe feels extremely tight all the way around, we generally recommend trying the next size up.
- If the top of your toes feel very cramped, we also recommend the next size up.
How to tell if your shoe is too large:
- If your heel slips out of the back of the shoe when walking, we recommend going a half size down.

All of our heel heights are measured in millimeters. Though the heel height will be listed in inches in each product’s description, here are our most common conversions:
- 30 mm / 1 inch
- 50 mm / 2 inches
- 60 mm / 2.5 inches
- 70 mm / 2.75 inches
- 85 mm / 3.3 inches
- 90 mm / 3.5 inches
- 100 mm / 4 inches
At this time, we do not have any styles that come in narrow or wide widths, as all Sarah Flint shoes are made on a medium-width last. Certain styles do tend to work better for different fit needs, so please reach out to customer service for recommendations.
We recommend measuring your waist and selecting the belt that is closest in size. If you are in between sizes, we recommend sizing up.
