nice try, but not quite right

I usually love Chacos - but have only worn the sandals and flip flops up to this point. I ordered the "Current" but ended up returning it for two reasons:

1. Fit -- Seems to run small. You might want to order a 1/2 size up. While I measure as a 6, wear a 6 or 6.5 usually, and wear a 6 in Chaco flip flops, the 6.5 felt too snug, and held my foot in the wrong place for the arch - which really does matter for Chacos.

2. The sole juts out further than the toe box - you can see it a little in the photo but it was more noticeable on my feet. Might have been ok, but combined with the white sole, it just made it not the right thing for my purposes - a grey or black sole would've been more subtle and work-friendly. But for casual/sneaker-like wear, they'd be fine.

Besides the fit, these shoes felt like they'd be sturdy and comfortable spring/fall walking shoes. Just not quite right for my purpose!
