This was my second pair. The fit was slightly larger than my first pair, but a smaller size wouldn't work. It's because they are designed to fit wide feet and I have narrow feet and long toes but I like wide shoes that let my foot spread comfortably when I walk. I use no show socks to help them fit better except when I wear them with the back down like slides. The shoes are light and soft but I feel protected from hard and rocky surfaces. A comfy fit to me.
I usually wear 9-9.5 (a bunion on one foot, which requires a larger size). These shoes are very soft and comfortable. I ordered 9.5 (41) and my feet are very long. Although the width is perfect. I plan to put them on for a while before determining their width (soft and soft leather!).
I love these mules. They are attractive, and comfortable. I especially like the low heel, the soft upper and cushioned sole.
This is a great little shoe, and it's also very good value. It is a simple design and well made. Its not exactly buttery soft leather, but definitely good quality and I expect will break in nicely hold up well for a long time.
