"I've worn Size 8 all my life and these are definitely short! Right out of the box, that was obvious. I just ordered Size 9 so we'll see. As I've gotten older, I've begun wearing wide width. Not only do these run short, they're also narrow - even for wide width. Unfortunately, I believe they are over-priced and should be half what they're listed for. I tried to ordered the black in 9W; however, they were sold out. Wish I had tried them on yesterday when they were delivered. All 3 pairs might go back - will need to see when 9W arrives."
