Looking to find out if Gucci trainers run to size? Then you have come to the right place. If you’re about to spend a pretty penny on a pair of Gucci trainers, you’ll need to know what size to get – so do Gucci trainers run big or small?

In this day and age, online shopping is a staple for most of us. At just the touch of our fingertips, we can buy from any brand in the world. As a stylist and content creator, I’m always trying out a variety of brands, so have had plenty of experience when it comes to shoes.

Are Gucci shoes worth buying?

Although they might cost a lot compared to the good old classics from sneaker giants like Nike, adidas, and New Balance, Gucci offers not just great style and versatility but also high-quality footwear.

Gucci shoes are expensive because they’re made from the highest-quality materials, like calfskin and lambskin. They’re also made by trained craftsmen and women, and unlike cheap brands, Gucci ensures nothing slips through the net through quality control. I also see these as a great investment, especially if you’re a sneaker head or even someone who finds happiness collecting shoes.

Should I size up or down in Gucci shoes?

Now that you’ve made your decision to buy your pair online, the next question is whether Gucci footwear is true to size or if you need to size up or down? This all depends on what sort of trainer you go for.

Gucci provides a really handy sizing guide, with exact shoe measurements in mm and cms. If you’re still unclear about whether to size up or down, some say that you should go with your true size. Farfetch, a stockist of Gucci trainers, recommends going for your true fit, especially when purchasing the Gucci Tennis sneakers.

Although they’re made with sturdy leather, the Gucci Tennis 1977 sneakers have padding around the ankle that helps make the foot comfortable and lock into place.

Do Gucci Ace sneakers run big or small?

Not a fan of the Tennis 1977 sneakers? You can opt for Gucci Ace sneakers for that minimalist vibe that goes well with every look. However, for these shoes, it’s recommended to size up when purchasing a pair.

According to the same outlet, go at least half a size up since the style of the Gucci Ace sneakers has a narrower front. On the other hand, if you have wide feet, you can always opt for one size larger. It’s worth mentioning that leather does stretch, so if they’re tight around the width of the foot, you can go for your true size. However if your toes touch the front of the shoe, they’ll never fit.

In short, in general Gucci trainers will run to size, but for some it may be worth going up one, to give yourself a bit of extra room. We always recommend trying before buying, and don’t be afraid to return the item if it’s not 100 per cent right for you.
