Fabulous shoe - but I'm considering sizing up

Reviewed by Cassandra from Vancouver, BC on Wednesday, February 25, 2015
I LOVE the style of this shoe; it's truly do-everything from dress to casual, including looking good with a chunky leg warmer. The toe is fairly rounded (so not super dressy) but not as stumpy as some Romikas are.

The shoe is hard to get into because the collar is really stiff, being several layers. Also, the elastic gore is a bit small and far forward (need to be able to stretch the heel backwards to slide it over the curve of the heel), and the inside of the shoe is not slippery at first. The average person might not have a problem but I have a highish instep.

The sole has good stability through the arch so the shoe doesn't twist or flex even though the sole and heel are rubber.

I usually wear a size 40 with no problems, but this 40 is a bit snug - perhaps because my instep is high, but also I wonder about the length - the shoe looks small on my foot. Because it's so tight, the foot won't breathe at all during a long day. For all those reasons, I might try sizing up to a 41 in this one.

Loses one star because more thought should have been given to entry and exit.
