I ordered the black leather and the raisin suede. I read the reviews before I ordered this shoe and I agree that the shoe is about a half size longer than one would expect, but since I took that into account when ordering, that wasn't a problem. The shoes were definitely good looking. Unfortunately, the purple suede pair were faded on the heel. The black pair I tried out, a few times. I had high expectations, with these being Rockport, and was disappointed. The padding felt good on the heel and the arch (although with my high arch, I still didn't have enough support - but I never do), but at the toe and ball of my foot, for some reason, it felt like there was barely any padding, and my toes/balls of my feet got tingly like they were falling asleep. I tried them out a few times, hoping it would get better or it was just my imagination, but no luck :-(They were both returned.
