    1. Love!

      I absolutely love these shoes. They are so high quality and the comfiest shoes I've had for work. Definitely recommend sizing up, but they are wonderful. I do have medium to narrow feet, which may explain the fit difference.

    2. Tight and inconsistent

      I had purchased the 8.5 and exchanged for a 9... They both fit exactly the same, no difference in tightness. I would love to give it a third try, but there are no 9.5s left... I did measure my feet and use the size guide for reference... way off :( Very sad because they are a lovely design.

    3. runs small; not good for wide feet

      I normally wear between 7.5 and 8, and I took 8 in these. Strangely, the right foot fits great but the left foot is a little narrow for me. This is probably just my feet. I am taking these to the cobblers to see if they can stretch the leather. The bottoms come with a plastic coating, which is very slippery if you're trying to break these in to see whether they'll fit. Cannot return if plastic is removed. Leather is nice and supple! Good quality but not so comfortable for my odd feet.

    4. Beautiful color

      I really loved the color, but they were awfully tight. I exchanged for a half size larger. I hope they fit just right. I am between an 8.5 and 9... Usually 9s are a little loose and 8.5s are just right but these were tight. So I went up to the 9 and we'll see... I will post again, I am hoping I won't have to ask for a bigger size.

      These are so great. I wear an 8.5 and ordered the 8. The definitely stretch out/break in and now they fit pretty perfectly. They are super comfortable now and the sole is pretty padded. Has a really nice, classy look. I feel like I can throw them on with skinny jeans or black pants and it adds a classy touch to my outfit. I love them!

    6. Too small!

      These definitely run small. So if you are on the fence as to what size to get, SIZE UP! =)

    7. Runs very small!

      The shoes look great and it seems like they would be very comfy. However, they run very small! I normally wear an 8.5 and ordered an 8.5, despite the suggestion to size down for narrow feet. It wasn't a matter of tight - they wouldn't even fit completely on my foot.

      For reference, compared to my other well-fitting shoes, there was a difference of probably 1/2".

      I\m exchanging for a larger size, and I anticipate absolutely loving them once I find the right size.
