"I got these for my commute to work -- I was looking for something comfortable and less bulky than normal sneakers. These definitely fit the bill! I ordered my normal shoe size (NOT my normal sneaker size, which is 1/2 size up) and they fit perfectly. I usually wear them barefoot, but they would accommodate a thin sock. Only con is that they lack arch support, but that's easily fixed with some inserts. Overall, love them!"
