"Long story short: Two thumbs up if you order a size smaller than your usual (tricky), if you're into having a bit of elevation with your sneakers (yes!), and if you don't mind a sole that's a bit slippery on smooth surfaces (bummer). Don't buy it otherwise. Pretty shoe, unfortunate flaws making it difficult to use.
I always wear a size 7-7.5. Ordered a 7. Fits like an 8, my foot slides out from behind. It's a shame, because I think the shoe itself is absolutely beautiful, comfortable (admittedly stiff, but it's new, and all shoes need a little breaking in), and the platform heel is a big plus for me (I'm 5'2"). The faux-leather outside material has a fun feel to it. I'm a big fan of the design of this shoe, I just wish 1) it ran in half-sizes (a 6 would be too small for me), and that the bottom sole had a bit more grip --I feel like I'm going to slip and fall in these, despite the ridges (and no, this has nothing to do with the fact that the shoe is too large for me, the bottom sole is objectively slippery, at least on the specific pair I received in the mail). Will unfortunately be returning this tastefully quirky sneaker."
