About the Designer
When a line was made famous by such timeless style icons as Brigitte Bardot and Jane Birkin, you know it's on to something. Launched in the '70s by Serge Bensimon, the eponymous line creates classically simple yet luxurious footwear with the essence of Parisian style and a sense of joie de vivre. Bensimon's sophisticated, fashion-forward footwear has earned it a cult following, while its classic yet modern appeal has won it celebrity fans like Kate Moss, Cameron Diaz, and Liv Tyler.

Size conversion chart is accurate!
Other reviews online suggest sizing up in Bensimon shoes - and they are absolutely correct. I usually wear size 8, and I also have a wide foot (often shoes are too narrow at the ball of my foot, causing painful rubbing and blisters on the sides of my feet)..... however, I ordered the 39 in this shoe in egg shell, and it fits perfectly! Just enough room so that it feels spacious in bare feet, but not so much that it's too big. Definitely pay attention to the "sizing conversion" under "size & fit". The sole of the foot is definitely pretty thin, soft, and flexible - I haven't worn them yet but I can imagine how the sole of the foot will wear through with a lot of walking. The egg shell colour is a bit darker shade of beige than my monitor displayed. First time ordering from Shopbop - I live in Canada and am thrilled to report that the "free shipping, free returns" is definitely accurate, there are no surprises! A Canada Post pre-paid return label is included. AWESOME :-)
Sizing: True to Size / As Expected
I'm a US 6.5 but with these even 36 is too big. And since they have no shoelaces they must fit well so that they don't fall off the feet. The sole is not that snug as expected. Really mediocre.
Sizing: Larger than Expected
