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.

I have been wearing the Bloom II for years. This shoe is a little lighter in weight, and sportier. It comes in brown, a color I have trouble finding.The strap is a little close to the ankle, requiring me to add felt padding, but otherwise it is a sturdy and comfortable shoe. I walk 8--11 miles a day at work alone,and I have problem feet, so I need a comfortable shoe.

Trotter shoes tend to be narrower, so while they are in fact narrower then another medium width shoe they are consistent for the brand.I had a pair of stadium pumps that died, and I have been trying to replace them for several years and these fit the bill. They are a clean classic look and exactly what I was looking for.

I've been wearing my Trotters Liz shoes for several years, mostly the black pair. Also, I have pewter and recently purchased tan and bone. Nowmy shoe colors are complete and ready for all seasons! They look dressyenough for any occasion and yet fine with casual outfits. Wish they made the exact style with an inch and a half heal.
Wears this shoe: For dress and sometimes casual wear.

I purchased the navy blue in an 8N and they fit like a glove and were immediately comfortable. Love the soft leather, it's like the shoes were already broken in.
