I couldn't fit my foot in these without undoing and then fastening the ankle buckle. The entrance is smaller than it looks in the pic but the ankle belt has 5 holes so plenty of room just not "slip on", takes a minute or so to get on and off.The shoes are comfortable, no area rubs or pinches. The best feature for me is the shiny gold buckle and gold raised beads. The metallic brown flat beads in between the raised gold ones are cute too. With the chocolate brown leather that looks very classy. The inside of the shoe is a nice shimmery gold too.The toe point being quite narrow means you would maybe need an extra half size if you have similar length- more square shape row of toes.
