They Fit Kinda Funny... But They're So Comfortable!

When I first tried these shoes on, I thought I was going to return them for sure. I ordered my usual size (9.5) and they actually felt kind of big. I think it's because the toe box is really wide and also tall. My toes felt like they were just kind of floating in there, which is an odd sensation for shoes that are open except at the toes. Also, the strap is really big- I have to wear it kind of crooked and cinched pretty tightly to get it to stay on. I have average feet- not too narrow or wide. The shoes are just awkward-fitting. So I was sadly ready to send them back.
But my husband said they looked really cute, and my daughter said they looked good on me. I decided I'd keep them just to wear to church or when I wouldn't be walking around a lot. They're nice-looking shoes.
Well, I decided to wear them one day when we went on a day trip. We walked around on a beach, walked up and down stairs, walked all around a town, walked all over on a ferry... and not ONCE did my feet feel uncomfortable. Not ONCE did I even think about my shoes, except when I thought, "Wow, these shoes aren't hurting at all!" No blisters, no pink marks- just comfort.
SOOOOO glad I kept them! Now I want another color. :)
