        Getting the right fit
        Petit Barcelona Fit Guide


        We often talk instore about the perfect fit. What we’re looking for, how it should feel, and how to overcome any niggly foot problems you may be having. 

        So, we asked Lauren, owner of Petit Barcelona, to sit down and answer a few questions that we’re asked regularly. Questions around fit, leathers and care of our sandals. Have a watch below to see Lauren answer some of these questions, and read on to learn a little more.


        How do I find my size?

        The first thing you need to consider when buying a pair of Spanish sandals is the length of your foot. The length, not the width, of your foot will determine your size.

        Does width matter?

        Our Spanish sandals are made from the highest quality Spanish leathers, and will gently soften and mould to the shape of your foot. This will happen whether you have a narrow foot or a wide foot. Our Avarcas will give only as much as they need to.

        Tip: to speed up this process you can wear them around the house with a pair of socks (or two!).

        While our Avarcas are made to a standard size some leathers will better suit narrow or wide feet. 


        My shoes have arrived and are feeling very snug, is this ok?

        It sure is! We want them to feel a little snug across the front of your foot! This is the part that will soften and mould to your foot with wear.

        If your feet are within the stitching on the insole of the shoe you have the right size. Long toes may peep through the front of the shoe, others may not. This is a normal variance.

        If the shoe feels a little snug but you’re not experiencing actual pain, you have the right size.


        The back straps are quite loose or won´t stay up. Is this the right fit?

        Your back straps should sit firm on your heels. They will naturally fall to the widest part of your heel as they wear in. They will at first feel like they might fall off, but they won´t completely. If your straps are gaping, or sliding up and down as you walk, but your length is fine, then our shoes are not the right fit for your heel shape.  

        Alot of people who can´t wear backstraps normally, choose our Platform Avarcas or Wedge Espadrilles, as the incline of the shoe means that the back strap stays up higher than the Flat Avarcas. 


        Should my toes be visible or not?

        As all feet are different shapes, the length of your toes are too. Whether or not your toes are visible is not an indication that your shoes fit or not. We like to think that when you haven´t had a pedicure, our shoes hide a multitude of sins! 


        I don’t think I have the right size. What should I do?

        If your Spanish Avarcas are snug to the point of pain you may need to go up a size. If your foot is within the stitching but the backstrap is falling, you may need to go down a size.

        But don’t despair, our desire for the perfect fit is supported by our generous returns policy. 


        What is the difference in fit between the styles?
