Okay, I now own 4 pairs of these shoes. Obviously I just LOVE them. The first 3 pairs I ordered in a size 9.5, which is what I wear in shoes normally. The size 9.5 is roomy, and my toes don't reach the end. The 4th pair I ordered in a size 9, thinking that would be best. Well, it is... but just barely. Now my toes do butt up against the toe box, which I'm not sure I prefer? They do feel more secure on my feet, though. The toe box is so generous on these shoes, it really may be best to size down, even if they feel a teensy bit tight. The way the bottoms of the shoes are- with the toe box and back straps not connecting- your foot does make room for stretching a bit.
I have worn these shoes with skirts, skorts, shorts, and pants. I've worn them in rain, in the cold, and on warm days. I've worn them on muddy soccer fields and on rocky hiking trails. I've walked for hours in them. They have no arch support, which is their only negative for me. Otherwise, they have been smooth-sailing in all of these areas. LOVE them!
