The shoes are pretty but, they run a little wide and the heal is floppy. I had to buy something to put in the back of the shoe to keep them from flopping. I am afraid to go down a half size because I don't want them to be to short.
I normally wear a size 8 or 8.5 but these feel a bit tight around my toes ( like digging into my toes kind of feeling) when I put them on. They feel comfortable on my heals and I liked snug fit on top of my feet. Because I am on my feet all day at work, I ordered a size 9 to compare. Thank goodness they have free returns.
