"I ordered these shoes online because I really liked the patent sheen look. When they arrived, they we're just a little too big (I usually wear an 8.5 or 9 and I ordered a 9), so I went to a store and tried on a smaller size. They still seemed a little too long - I could see the beginning of my toe before the cap of the shoe. They made my feet look bigger than they are. After spending about 30 mins trying them on in different colors, I ended up returning them. I have to say I really liked the look of these shoes and I wanted to find a pair that worked, but in the end I decided they're just not for me. However, they might look great on someone else, so don't rule them out! Definitely try on in the store if you can."
