I'm a true 8 size shoe, and I read that I should order at least a half size to a whole size smaller. I ordered a 7.5 instead of 7 thinking a full size would be ridiculous but everyone else was right. The boot was gigantic, it barely stayed on my legs. I even tried wearing thick sweater thigh highs but that didn't help much at all. I had to return the boots and pay six dollars return shipping. They looked really cute though. I'm not sure if even a 7 would have been too big, I almost feel like I should have ordered a 6.5 instead. I ended up buying this same boot with a heel (well, similar), and the 7.5 fit great so I stuck with that. Don't doubt the reviews, and go at least a full size smaller.
