My favorite shoes are my Chaco sandals, and I was hoping these would be as wonderful, for cooler weather. The fit is correct, but the instep area and footbed is as hard as a rock, actually painful to walk on! While standing in them for a while, I found myself lifting a foot off the ground to relieve the discomfort! I am going to keep them and try to break them in, but if I had tried them on in a store I would NEVER have bought them. There were so many great reviews of the Pedshed, I wonder if something was wrong with just this batch of shoes? They are cute, though!

I didn't find that these ran big. I kept 2 pair that I wore and sent back the ones I did not wear. The shape of the toe box was a bit too short for one of my toes on my left foot. The shape of the toe box has allot to do with that. The toe box is different because it has a rounded edge inside made out of leather and my toe keep hitting it. These are good shoes and I will continue to wear the ones I kept.

I have a pair of chaco sandals that fit great, however the exact same size in the Pedshed dont fit at all the same. The last (bottom of shoe) is the same great spongy but durable material and the arch is the same but that is where the similarities stop. The shoes last are longer by 3/4", which makes the shoes much too long. Oddly enough, the width is the same, (measured by putting both sandal and shoe together on the bottom), but the shoe is much too narrow. The the two reasons are this; 1) the top is closed/covered on the shoe and fits tightly. Since they are suede they will likely stretch. 2) Since the shoe is covered, there is a significant loss of last space from the seam. I typically buy birks and know how each line of the last fits ie, betulas, birks, tatamis... and in each line the last remains the same. (factors of removable footbeds can change it but they too are universal) But with Chacos, I can tell they are not universal. My friend has the exact same pedshed chaco shoe and she kept hers, stretched out the width to fit, but too much toe space made her keep tripping so she gave hers away. The footbed in both my sandal and shoe are the same, anatomical shape-- arch,,, Bottom line is figure it to be long in the toe and wides ones are normal, not wide. I'm returning mine and wont buy chacos online again unless I get free return shipping. Trying them on cost me too much
According to our fit models they run 1/2 size large.
Trust Our Recommendations
At Sierra Trading Post, we verify the size of every single shoe style we sell. We never simply offer the vendor's standard size information, because we want the shoes you order online to fit you right the first time. If the description of a pair of shoes on SierraTradingPost.com says "Runs small, order one full size larger," we determined this ourselves in an effort to perfect the sizing recommendation offered by the manufacturer.
