Frequently Asked Questions

Where/How can I shop Margaux?
You can shop our collections all day, every day on our website. You can also visit one of our stores or pop-ups to view the collections, find your fit, and place your order in person. Currently, we have a flagship store on New York’s Bleecker Street. We’re popping into new spaces and cities regularly, so keep an eye on our Visit page for updates to our store locations.
At our stores, you can see the full range of sizes and colors, and can find your perfect fit by trying on fit samples in our extended size range of widths and lengths. Please note our stores are “guideshops,” meaning they do not carry inventory. Orders placed in store will be shipped to you according to the shipping times outlined below.
How do I care for my Margaux shoes?
We lightly treat all of our shoes before they leave the factory to protect them against dirt, and add rubber to the sole and heel to extend the lifetime of the shoe. Additionally, there are some simple steps you can take to keep yours looking pristine. As with all leather shoes, avoid getting them wet. If your shoes do get wet, allow them to dry completely before wearing again, or treating with a suede brush or cleaner. Suede is quite durable; marks and dirt can be removed with a brush and suede cleaner. We also recommend treating your suede semi-regularly with a protector spray to help guard against dirt and marks.
We also offer a suede care kit which includes a suede cleaner, protector, and brush for the care and maintenance of your shoes, which you can shop here.
As with our suede ballerinas, we strongly recommend that you avoid exposing your nappa leather and fabric shoes to water. These pairs are made from naturally-tanned Italian nappa leather, which means that the leather is porous and absorbs water easily. If your Demis do come in contact with water, allow the soles and uppers to completely dry before wearing again to prevent further damage.
How do you ensure a quality product?
We work closely on every detail of our shoes with well-established, family-owned factories that supply components and produce shoes for some of the most coveted luxury brands in the world. Because we sell directly to you through our stores and e-commerce site, we’re able to offer luxury quality at a fraction of the price.
We take a meticulous approach to designing, constructing, and manufacturing our footwear. Should you have any questions about your shoes, do not hesitate to reach out to our customer care team at email@example.com.
How do I determine my best fit?
Our recommendations for size conversions vary by product, and size guides are available on each product page, for quick reference based on your typical U.S. size.
We make all of our shoes in an unmatched range of sizes and widths: Three widths, in European sizes 33 to 45 (a US 2.5 to 14). An estimated 77% of women need a “non-standard” shoe size, whether smaller, larger, narrower, or wider than mainstream sizes, and nearly 80% are wearing the wrong size shoe - So keep in mind that you might find one of our width or extended size options is your best fit! For example, if you find that most shoes feel tight across the front of your foot, we recommend trying a wide width. If you find most shoes gap along the sides and feel loose, we recommend trying a narrow width.
Still aren’t sure which size would be best? Reach out to Customer Care at firstname.lastname@example.org, and we’d be happy to help!
I'm not sure whether I need a medium, narrow, or wide width. Can you help?
Everyone’s feet are different — which is one of the many reasons we developed our three width options. We want to make sure you find your perfect pair, whether that’s a standard width, or a narrow or wide. If you have had issues with fit in the past — for example, gaping at the sides of your shoe, slipping at the heel, tightness across the ball of the foot, a bunion — you’re the perfect candidate for our narrow and wide widths. If you have trouble deciding between widths, please feel free to contact Customer Care at email@example.com. We will be happy to walk you through the process and help you decide on your best option.
How do I take my measurements?
Using a soft measuring tape and pencil, you’ll need to take four measurements from each foot. These measurements will give us a holistic picture of your sizing needs. Once you record and save your measurements in your account, you can edit them at any time. Even if you’re ordering a medium width pair, we encourage you to measure the length of your feet and compare the larger number (it’s very common to have slightly different-sized feet) to our sizing chart to ensure you’re ordering the correct size. Please contact Customer Care if you have any questions about the measurement process. For more detailed instructions on how to measure, please see the How to Measure page of our site.
My shoes are a bit snug. Will they break in?
Our suede and leather shoes should feel snug but comfortable upon first trying them on: The leather is structured and softens with wear, requiring several wears to soften and mold to your foot. That said, they should not initially feel uncomfortably tight. Should your shoes feel too tight or too loose upon arriving, send us a note at firstname.lastname@example.org, and we’d be happy to recommend size alternatives so that you can find the best fit possible.
Which styles are available in a custom fit?
We currently offer a made-to-measure option in our Classic and Pointe styles, but we are hoping to expand our custom offering to additional styles in the near future. Sign up for our email newsletter to stay abreast of upcoming styles and changes!
When will I get my order?
Most shoe orders are shipped via DHL. Tracking information for orders will be emailed to you with shipping confirmation. Standard sizes will be shipped within two business days of the order date. Shipped items will arrive within five to seven business days from shipment date in the contiguous United States. Items shipped to Alaska and Hawaii will arrive in seven to ten business days from shipment.
Express orders are shipped via FedEx. If express shipping is selected on orders of in-stock items, orders received before 12 pm ET will ship out the same day, while orders received after 12 pm ET will ship out the following day. The express shipment option selected determines the time at which your order will arrive.
Orders of gift boxes and fitting kits will also be shipped within two business days; gift boxes and fitting kits also arrive within five to seven business days of shipment.
Custom shoes will be made to order and shipped within eight to twelve weeks of the order date, unless otherwise indicated. Please note that if you order more than one color of made-to-measure ballerinas in a single order, you will receive one pair first to confirm the fit. Once you have confirmed the fit, the remaining pairs will be put into production.
The shoes I would like to order are unavailable. What are my options?
We offer pre-orders for customers who want to ensure they reserve a particular pair from an incoming shipment. When placing your order, you will see an expected ship date. Please note that this date may change, though we will do our very best to ship preordered items in a timely fashion. You will also receive note of the expected ship date in your order confirmation email. Because we do not keep credit card information on file, your card will be charged the full total of your order on the date your order is placed. Returns and exchanges may be requested within 30 days of delivery by emailing Customer Care at email@example.com.
If you don't see your size in a particular style in stock or available for preorder, we can make a pair just for your at our factory in Spain, at no additional cost. Such pairs are shown as “Made to Order” on the product page. Because these shoes are handmade to-order, your order will take up to 12 weeks to arrive.
Can I change or cancel my order?
Once orders have been submitted, they cannot be changed or cancelled. To ensure accuracy, we encourage you to double check your size and all shipping details before submitting your order.

Exchanges will be shipped via FedEx SmartPost, and will arrive within 5-7 business days from reshipment. If returned pairs are found to be damaged or show signs of wear and are thus unsellable, you may choose to either have the shoes returned to you, or incur a 30% restocking fee.
