I found these shoes in a DSW after having found my prom dress and needing shoes. The ones there were a 7.5 and were wayyyy to small. Thankfully I found these shoes on here and bought the 9 on a whim. I was so excited when they came! I immediately tried them on. Around the toe fit perfectly, but the ankle straps were a bit too loose around my skinny ankles. But honestly that does not bother me because I found the perfect pair of shoes that almost exactly match my dress.
