I’ve been eyeing these shoes for a while and finally decided to purchase them. I haven’t had them long so can’t comment on durability but they seem built to last, and live up to all the reviews-they are beautiful! I thought I’d share my sizing experience in case it helps someone. I have an average foot with a narrow heel and very consistently wear size 9. The 9’s fit comfortably but were slipping a bit in the heel. I decided to exchange for the 8.5’s. They are definitely more snug, but not uncomfortably so, and I know they’ll stretch some. But this eliminated the heel slippage. Thank you for an ethically made, beautiful, comfortable shoe!
