I really, really wanted these shoes to fit, as they appeared to be a great balance between a casual and a dress shoe. I ordered them in both the navy and the stone colors. Both were lovely in color. But, before even trying them on (and, by the way, I LOVED the look of this style), I noticed that the strap that goes around the heel seemed to be much too far forward from the back of the footbed. And, that proved to be the case, as I could not get my size 11 foot into the size 11 shoe because that strap WAS way TOO short. And, this is NOT a strap with an adjustable buckle. Nor is it a strap that has an elastic inset that will stretch as you're putting them on and then fit securely after they're on. Nope, it is a solid, sewn on, piece of leather with NO adjustment possible. And, it's just WAY TOO SHORT for the shoe. Both pair of the shoes were like this. As I said, this is noticeable just by looking at the shoe before you even try it on your foot. So, for these to fit, your foot would need to be much shorter than the footbed of the shoe. For me, who wears a size 11, there was no purchasing a larger size. A larger size would probably look silly, anyway, as the footbed of the shoe would be sticking out about an inch behind my heel. This really seems to be a design flaw. I wish the maker would fix this, as I NEED some shoes like these. These went back… sadly.
