These definitely runs a little large. I'm between 7-7.5 (more incline to 7.5) but ordered these in a 37 and there is still room. However, a 36.5 would have been too snug. The brown strips are actually darker than the pictures. They're the same colour as the matte leather which I was hoping for. If you are alright walking on 3.5" heels and is looking to attract some major attention, I'd say go for it.
