cute but clunky
I wear a US 10 and often 40.5-41 in European. Sometimes, depending on the brand, the 10 is too small but 11 is too large; it can be challenging. I loved the idea of these cute slip ons and they were extremely comfortable. Rarely, though is a US 10 too large for me. These were overall a bit wide and slightly long and made my already large feet look like boats! Needless to say I have returned them; I will try a 9.5 but they may end up being too short.
Sizing: Larger than Expected

Gorgeous design, not so practical
I am a big Helmut Lang fan-- I wear a lot of the clothing and have a bag from a couple years ago which is my "go-to" (along with the Wang "Brenda"), and the quality is amazing. I've been on the lookout for a new every-day bag and since I don't have $2500 to spend on a Givenchy, it's taking me ages to find the right combination of form + function; I am very picky. This bag has all the "fashion goth" detailing I'd expect from HL, and the quality is beyond. I thought I'd try a bag with more structure than what I'm used to (slouchy, Alexander Wang), but this one ended up feeling like a piece of luggage. I really wanted to love it but it was way too big for every day use (and I like large bags). Sadly I am still on my quest for the perfect bag.
