Fit & Sizing

Our shoes are designed to fit like their corresponding American size: i.e. a 38 from Thelma should fit like a typical US 8. That said, we’ve found that some women prefer to take a half size up. Do note that suede gives over time; we’ve found that after about three wears, the shoes will have stretched to adjust to the wearer’s foot. These shoes are meant to be comfortable, so if you experience extreme tightness when you first put them on, you’d likely prefer a half size up. If you have any further questions, please email us at info@shopthelma.com.

How you decide to care for your suede and leather is truly a matter of personal preference. Some prefer to keep shoes looking brand new as long as possible while others find beauty in materials that look worn in.

  • We recommend spraying the suede with a protectant annually.
  • Use a suede brush to remove dirt and stains.
  • For deeper stains, consult a leather professional.
  • Avoid contact with oils, mud and excessive amounts of water.
