Whatever it is for women or men, Autry usually size its sneakers large. However we advise you not to go for an upper size if your foot is well adjusted to the shoes. This advice goes for most shoes from the women collection.

Why is it important to choose wisely your sneakers ?

We all buy sneakers for different reasons, some of us buy them for their style and designs, some others buy them for the brand, some buy them out of necessity and some out of love. We adjust our choices according to these reasons, but what does it means exactly ? Let’s take the exemple of someone who is looking for a sneaker that would blent with most of his clothes and resistant, that person is most likely going to go for a white or black sneaker with a simple design and long lasting. On the other hand, a person that is searching for a sneaker that is going to be worn only with a specific outfit is going to adjust its choice to the outfit ( color, style, era). Some buy sneakersfor what they represent, just like basketball fans with Air Jordan and Nike, or athletism and running fans with Puma and Adidas.


There is a lot of factors that you have to consider in order to make the right choice. First is the utility of the pair, what are you buying them for ? Sports ? Style ? For sports shoes, we think it is preferable to go for a size upper than usual since studies has proved that the foot gain in volume after an effort, so you might feel a little tight after sports if you can for the standard size you are used to. Then, there’s the question of tendencies, is it trendy ? Is it going to ade away in less than 7 months ? The others factors than can help you to choose the right pair is your height and your weight.
