I originally tried this on at a local shoe store in my normal size 6. It was huge on me! They didn't carry anything smaller in the store so I tracked it down online and ordered the size 5 with my fingers crossed. The shoes just arrived today and I couldn't be happier! They fit perfectly, though a little tight in the toe area (I have pretty wide feet). I know they'll stretch in no time. The foot bed is sooo comfortable and they feel very stable to walk in because of the chunky heel and the ankle strap. The quality of the materials and the overall build of the shoe seems very nice and well worth the price.I highly, highly recommend these shoes but order down from your normal size!
