Smart and Comfortable
Verified Buyer Reviewed by Sally can Dance from NJ on Sunday, May 25, 2014
Love the shoe. I am an 8 and a half with high arches and a somewhat wide foot. The 39 fits me well with a little room to spare at the toe. I believe some people have complained that the strap at the heel gaps. Pay attention to the way you tie the laces, make sure that you bring the ribbons (twill tape, actually) forward and then wrap them back around your ankle. Yes, it will gap if you attempt starting the wrapping in the other direction! Those ties could be a bit more substantial, but you could quite easily change them out for something wider if you like. When I took them out of the box, I initially wished I had ordered the black instead of the brown, it is actually brown with black ties and part of the soles. There is a hand done looking contrasting stitching along the seam at the front of the shoe that I personally don't care for and plan to black out with a sharpie marker. I think these will be perfect for my summer trip to Venice.
