"I LOVED the look of these shoes on the website, but walking around in them, I can feel the shoe sliding back and forth on my foot with every step. My toes keep hitting the front of the shoe, and I'm not really getting the benefit of the arch support because it's not always hitting in the right spot. I attribute this problem to the shoe being too wide, and not gripping my foot correctly. The length is perfect, so I can't fix it by sizing down.
They're still cute (and slightly cowboy, thanks to the top of the shaft being highest at the outside of the knee), but experience has taught me that I'll eventually regret any pair of shoes that doesn't fit right."
