These arrived with small white splotches on both shoes. These are the reason for the 3 stars. Otherwise very nice. The mildly pebbly texture of the leather is nice. I could wear these to a nice occasion (not really dressy). I have a bit of a narrow foot and they are fine, but maybe too narrow for a regular foot.. I wear a 7 and would still order this size. The velcro closure that s like a button is very nice. No arch support (unlike Danskos), but non-custom orthotics do fit, although these make the heel ride up and down a little (does not happen with plain shoes). Could wear year-round.

I have ordered three pairs of these: in black, taupe, and most recently in brown. Ordered a 7, because I do not plan to wear them with socks. The sizing is odd. In the black pair, one shoe fits great, but the other is tight. OK but not great with knee-high hose. The taupe have the same problem. Kept them, hoping they would stretch out a bit. The brown I had to return. Could not get my left foot into the shoe!

I like the shoes and am hoping they will break in. I bought them for travel. They are generally comfortable although a little tight across the top of the foot so I am trying to stretch them out. They also seem to hold stains easily. I am a no-sock girl, and the lining sticks to my foot - I replaced the lining with another and that seems to satisfy that need.

These shoes are so nice. I had a different pair that had a functioning buckle on the side, and I hated having to bend over and fumble around with a buckle that I couldn't see. These have a velcro closure, which is so easy. OK, that's a minor point, but the major points include style, comfort,and versitility. I love these shoes!

I love these shoes, but unfortunately, they are a half size too small. I ordered a size 39, exactly the same as a pair of Romika's I got last year from Sierra which fit perfectly. For some reason, these shoes are too small. I'm pretty bummed since I ordered them for a trip, but they need to be returned.

These shoes are super light-weight and a lot sleeker looking in person. I LOVE them. They are super well made, but do run a touch small and narrow. I am an 8.5 and purchased the 39. I should have purchased a 40.
