I was looking for a shoe with a low heel, comfortable, wide toe, and still looks feminine. I found it! I usually wear an 8 or 81/2 - I bought an 8 and it is plenty big so maybe these run big (but just a little). The ankle strap is not my thing - so I wrap the strap under the arch of the shoe & make an X on top of my foot . I have been asked by several people where I got the shoes & told they look great.
