These are very pretty and comfortable for the height, however they do feel like they run slightly narrow and small so if you buy your exact size and plan on wearing them for an extended amount of time be prepared, as your feet swell the straps on these shoes are pretty unforgiving on the top of your feet. None the less these shoes really are lovely regardless of the minor discomfort.

I love how they look but the straps are very wide. Perfect if you have wide feet but if you have narrow or average width feet pick something else.
