"I purchased two pairs (pink and black) of these shoes for my 15 y/o daughter. They are extremely cute shoes. After reading reviews on another site about the shoe running small, I decided to go up to a 8.5 from her usual size 8. However, she immediately complained about her big toe not having enough room. Also, she has a wider than normal foot but doesn't require wide shoes. But the sides of her feet seemed to be running out of the shoes. Therefore, I would deem these to be pretty narrow."
