"These are very handsome shoes and they make my size 9 feet look tiny. The heel is a nice height to wear with jeans or longer pants and the sole is very rubbery and grippy. High quality, I expect them to last forever. However, when I first put them on I was doubtful I could keep them because they felt too tight. They run small and going a half size larger would probably have been better, and I very rarely run into a size issue with shoes. After wearing them all day today I think they've stretched and my feet don't hurt, so I'm keeping them!"
