I have this shoe in 8.5 w and They fit true to size. They give me room to breath and they don't slip off. I only wear Softspots for casual & dress shoes. These are my favorite everyday go to shoe this fall, so far. I love the leather and the color contrast. The pillowy edge is comfortable and secure the shoe to the foot without pinching, even after a bit of swelling (which is normal for me) I felt comfortable. The insoles are awesome. Drum Brown looks great. May try the other colors.
