How I Chose My Size:
I tried on all my existing closed-toed shoes, which consisted of several sizes ranging from American 9.5 to 11, and one European size 41 shoe. I noted that the size 11 shoes were all slightly large, and went with the 10 instead of the 9.5 because product reviews said they run small (as of this writing, there is no 10.5 option). The shoes are a bit snug right now, but this is the same canvas material on my other shoes which stretched out over time, so I think they will be perfect for my feet after a few wearings.
Negative Notes of Interest (why not 5 stars?):
-Like someone else, I received laces that are too short. I solved this by lacing them up every other hole. It looks just fine as far as I'm concerned (see attached photo), and functions well.
-The fabric and stitching are cheap. They look okay from a distance, but I foresee repairs in my future.
-The soles are covered in some kind of fuzz, as shown on the page. This fuzz makes them very slippery, so until I rough them up, they won't be safe for dancing and walking will require care.
-Even though these are a pretty royal blue, the zipper on the instep is black. If they manufacture black zippers on all their colors, it could be even more weird on other patterns.
-The shoes arrived folded and squished into a tiny box. That's great for shipping, but they have some weird creases in them that will take a while to wear out of the fabric.
-These shoes have clearly been worn before. Not much, but enough that I can tell. I don't particularly care enough about it to return them, but it's still annoying.
I actually like these shoes but I do have a few things I would like to discuss about them
1st I would like to say I purchased the white shoes and was very disappointed when the shoes both came with pretty large yellow stains. Currently I'm trying to get them out but it's an extra step I shouldn't have to take so I deffinatly don't recomend this particular color. If your wanting to use them as Halloween accessories it would be okay but I was wanting to use them as actual shoes the I could walk around In.
2nd I have fairly large calfs so the tongue Barely fits to fully close off the shoe. The widest part of my calf is about 15 inches if yours is any larger I don't recomend these shoes at all. But once on they do look awesome
3rd I read the reviews and purchased the shoes a size larger than I normally would and that allowed the shoe to fit properly. So deffinatly GET A SIZE BIGGER. If I hadn't they would not have for at all.
4th the laces barely made it to the top of the shoe. I realize it has a lot to do with having large calfs so I don't find that to be a big deal at all worst case scenario I have to purchase longer set of shoe laces
5th I was worried when I purchaced these shoes that they would not fit. I have wide feet and when I received them I was pleasantly surprised to find they fit purfactl
Over all I recomend these shoes just not in white! if it weren't for the stains I would have given a 5 star review.
However, like someone else I had a problem with the laces being too short. (My calves are fairly muscular from all the hill climbing I do here in bumpy Nashville.) The shoe fit, width-wise, but I needed about 16" more lace. Shocking, I know - the laces that come with these a a full 10 feet long!
Trouble is, laces are expensive!! I looked at one of those custom-order websites and they wanted $18 for a longer lace. I see someone else tried clothesline cord - I ordered a bunch of grosgrain ribbon in a cute zebra print pattern and am going to try that. You can use heat-shrink tubing to fix the end of a ribbon like a shoelace: Anytime SHRINK TUBING SLEEVES ASSORTED
Anyway, I'd buy these again. They do have a zipper up the side, which I somehow overlooked when I ordered them and was pleased to see. Had been thinking I might trim the tops a bit and I can't do that because zipper, but it looks like I can roll them down fairly easily.
