After reading the mostly positive reviews, I see I am in the minority but here goes anyway. Poor fit! The shoes do not run a half size too large. As per page suggestion, I ordered a size 8 (instead of the the 8.5) and had to exchange them for the 8.5. I should have also ordered the wide for my flat feet as these run narrow and I always have to wear thin socks. Still, these are fit issues which can be corrected. However, the real issue with these shoes is how they fit on the TOP of the foot. They end right at the top and the thick leather strap is uncomfortable and doesn't seem to allow for break in/stretch even though there are buckles to adjust the fit. I find them uncomfortable and gave them to my daughter in law. Although the shoe is really cute (I purchased in the olive color) and most reviewers found the shoes to be comfy and well fitting, they weren't for me. But when I did try to wear them I found the support to be very good as I have a bunion and that is important.
