Disappointed in fit and quality

I was looking for a low heeled closed toe shoe that I could wear with slacks that was comfortable but not clunky looking. When the shoes arrived, I thought these fit the bill. They seemed tight at first. I almost sent them back for a larger size. I'm glad I didn't as they quickly stretched and would flop off my heel. I clumped when I walked to the point where my husband was making jokes about the noise. The elastic straps were not firm enough to keep them in place. I'd never dance in them. The leather started wrinkling badly across the toes. Then the heel cap fell off one of the shoes. I've super-glued it back on this time but now the leather is frayed now around the cap. I don't know if the heel cap will stay on and it looks like the soles are going to wear through soon. I don't wear these for walking and they aren't exposed to salt or snow here in Florida. I just wear them mostly in my office and might stop at the grocery on the way home. They haven't been abused. I remember buying Old Maine Trotters years ago and the quality was good. Wonder where these are made now? I just bought these in November and it's early March now. I have shoes I have been wearing for 10 years that are in better shape. Maybe shoes were better made back then.

Beautiful, but only for thin legs

I bought the tan tooled leather boot in 7WW. The foot part of the boot fits perfectly and is very comfortable, but the top of the boot is only 10" around in circumference, and my leg is much bigger. It breaks my heart to have to return these because they are so beautiful and comfortable, but I need to be able to zip them up. I'd recommend measuring the circumference of your leg about 9" above your instep to see if it is less than 10" around.

This is the second pair of this particular shoe that we have ordered for my 89 year old mother. She now has this in black and brown and says it is the most comfortable shoe she has worn in years. She has a very narrow foot and has had much trouble finding a shoe that fixes correctly.
Wears this shoe: Mostly to church etc, but would be okay for every day wear

The shoes fit great but were not exactly what I was expecting in appearance.

Bought these for a trip to Hawaii, still to come. I think they will be suitable, yet to see in use. No leather, which I like for potential beach wear. Trying them at home they seem comfortable, and supportive--they stay on my feet as I run around. Since there is no width choice, them seem a little wide, but stay on my feet as I test them. I'm a 8.5 med, so I ordered 9, which seem fine so far. I'll let you know, after Hawaii, but I'm looking forward to wearing them.
Wears this shoe: Future use, testing at home in CA
