At Last…Isabel Marant Bazil Sneakers

Isabel Marant Bazil

Isabel Marant Bazil
There really are no words to explain how absolutely frustrating it was to try and hunt down a pair of Isabel Marant Bekket sneakers (especially black) for the past few seasons/years. I either couldn’t find them, missed them, or couldn’t afford them. I was determined to get my hands on them this time around, and with the help of wonderful Mandi (findmeamuse), I did! I passed my name around to boutiques around the world like hotcakes, and it was done. I don’t know which was harder, tracking them down or waiting months for them to finally arrive!

They are beautiful. Gorgeous. >Insert whatever adjective relating to amaziness here<. I was a little skeptical of the python print at first, but the execution is second to none. It’s subtle, but obvious enough to add just a little bit of texture. I’m waiting on 2 other colors, since I couldn’t make up my mind, but the black Bazil is doing an excellent job of convincing me.

For anyone who’s confused by the sizing, these sneakers are in EU sizes (printed on the shoe & box), not FR. I’m a size US 9 and ordered a 39 & 40 since there were conflicting opinions, and I decided to stick with the 39 (I’m also a 39 in the Bobby sneakers). My feet are a medium width, and the 39s are a good tight fit with thin socks, whereas the 40s fit well with thick socks. I was told they do stretch out a little with wear, so away the 40s went to another lucky girl (or guy too, apparently!). ;) That being said, it all boils down to preference of how you like your shoes to fit.

I’m also waiting on a pair of the Betty sneakers in black, due in by the end of this month. Horrible. I know. I have a problem. There’s going to be a lot of back and forth going on in regards to narrowing down what to keep, and I’m sure my bank will hate me (if they don’t already). XD

      They are fabulous. I love your blog!

    I have the black Bekkets – one thing I would love to know is do these sneakers have the white under part peeking out (on my Bekkets you can see a bit of white kind of peeping from under the sections, I thought I had a bad pair but I can see if on the netaporter site pics too). Am wondering if I need to get the Bazils (as well). (!!) xx

    • niniloves

      The Bazils do have the white lining underneath the side sections, but you can’t really see them unless you actually lift it up, I didn’t even notice until you mentioned! Other than that, the only white peeping out is the lining from the top collar (you can see it in my pictures too). Go for it! They are so gorgeous, and the python print really makes it that much more special. :)

  • Felicity

    thanks! these seem so much more luxe so I think I have to get them ;-)

  • Hi!
    Just wondering if you’re selling these on eBay right now?
    If not, just wanted to let you know that someone is using your photos here >_< :

    Just thought I'd let you know since I came across them as I was hunting for a pair of black Bazils (36) for myself!

    • niniloves

      Thanks so much for letting me know! Did you manage to find a pair? :)

  • Ooooh! Marants! Beautiful babies. Thanks for following me on twitter even though I tweet in Filipino sometimes. :))

    Can I please know where you got your bazil sneakers from?


  • Liezl

    HI. Love the wedge sneakers. Planning on getting a pair but want to know how they fit. I am a size 9.5 – 10. Is there wiggle room or is it a tight fit. Thanks :)

    • niniloves

      If you’re between 9.5-10 a size 40 will be perfect. I wear a true 9 and the 39s were a tight fit at first but have stretched to form my feet and are perfect now. Since you’re a 9.5 I think you’ll have a little more wiggle room than I did. :)

  • Fenny Suryanto

    Hi, I’m planning to buy a pair of these sneakers myself.
    I’ve been really confused with the sizing. On net-a-porter, the sizes are in FR.
    On other sites, sizings are in EUR.
    If I wear a true 6, what size should I get?
    Thanks :)

    • niniloves

      Hi Fenny, the sizing for these sneakers are always super confusing. I have no idea why the sites list them all differently! I wear a true 9 and bought a 39 in both. The box and soles on mine are both EU 39. Like I mentioned earlier in the post, it all depends on your fit preference. If you’re a true 6, I would say EU 36 (fits tight at first but stretches out in time)…but if you like wiggle room or wear thick socks, a EU 37 might be better. If you’re ordering from Net-A-Porter I would definitely contact them to make sure you order the right size!

  • Fenny Suryanto

    Thanks for your reply. I did contact net-a-porter and they said that a size 6 will be equivalent to FR37 but they are out of stock in that size. They do have it in FR36, however, which I’m hoping to fit into. So wish me luck! Thanks again.

    • niniloves

      Good luck! I’m not sure where you’re located, but you can also order from the US Net-A-Porter site, as they have the FR37 in stock. :)

    I just purchased at size 37 which is a UK 4. However wen I wear it with thick socks there a little tight which was not the case with my bobby ones. My toes on bekket are right at the end . I tried bekket 38 n there’s tiny room with thin socks so maybe thick socks will make them perfect but I’m actually a size 37/37.5. What size do u recommend?? 37 or 38?

    • niniloves

      Hi there! If you wear 37/37.5 I would say 38, just because of the half size. Try the 37 on with thin socks, and the 38 with thick socks…see how they feel and make your judgements from there. My bobby and bekkets are both 39 and I wear a true 9. My bobby does have more room, but my bekkets have also stretched out a little bit with wear. It really depends on your fit preference!

  • Someone is still using your images to sell the sneaker on eBay.
