I have wide feet and a very high instep, these were a little tight across the instep of my foot for the first couple of times that I wore them. They stretched out lovely, and have become my go to shoe. The width was perfect right out of the box. I am a very happy customer, who has now ordered 2 in black, 1 in ocean and 1 in magenta. It's hard to find a cute sandal that fits, then they go and change the styles so I ordered 4 pair to make sure I still have this fit in the future.
