Simple, beautiful comfort

I purchased these for a trip to Japan. They are light weight, feminine and absolutely stunning. The sole is nice and sticky, yet light weight. They don't offer much arch support, but more then a lot of ballet flats out there. They cover just enough of the foot so you can't see your toes, and they look beautifully feminine. I ordered the 39, my normal size. I wore them on day one and ended up with a raw spot (please note that I took these on vacation without breaking them in! So a day of walking in them after a day of breaking in another pair of shoes is bound to bring blisters!). I ended up putting the little heal pads in back to minimize slipping, but now I think they feel a bit too small. I plan on taking the heal pads out. I have a wide toe box and a narrow heal, so heal slipping is very common for me. I think once I break them in a bit, they will be without an issue. As a side note, Romika is a division of Joseph Seibel. So these are good quality shoes.
