These shoes run about 1/2 size large, to wit, I'm mostly a 10.5 in other good shoes--11 too large, 10 too small. But with the Jackie, a 10 fits perfectly. Roomy toe box, deep heel cup, accommodates my custom rigid orthotics perfectly. The cushioned sole has grip. I prefer the patent styles: have black, wine, and most recently … the silver. I wear these shoes with capris and/or rolled up jeans, with shorts and/or skirts. An excellent, cute and comfortable flat that allows me to wear all day, traveling, heavy walking, without aggravating my problem feet (have had bunion surgery on each foot). Will have to see how the silver looks once it's broken in a bit. Seems to be a very shiny silver fabric sealed under a clear varithane-ish looking, shiny surface. Very "arty" looking. The black pair and the wine pair have a more traditional patent finish. These are quality shoes with nice finishing details, stitching and a little floral like embellishment. Highly recommend. They fit like a glove and earn lots of compliments!
