I read the reviews about the shoes and everyone said to size up so I did. I usually wear a 7 1/2 and I ordered an 8 and they were still small. I'd have ordered an 8 1/2 if I knew they'd run like this. Also the stitching on both tongues is showing. Finally the shoes have a stiff feeling rather than the normal comfy feeling. If I'd have known they were going to be that weird feeling id have not purchased them. They also took a month to arrive.
