I'm ordering a new pair right now - and will update this review and let you know if I get a match between the two pairs (four shoes). If I can get two that match, I'll send one pair back. If the second pair is also mis-matched. I'll be returning both pairs.
OTHERWISE - the shoes are super cute. I really love them. There's enough of a rounding of the back of the shoe where it comes up around the heel / achilles tendon that I don't think it will rub (a problem I have all the time in shoes.) The straps keep the shoe firmly on the foot and it doesn't feel at all sloppy or loose. The strap could be longer though - I can just barely get the velcro secured over my super high instep. If I keep them I may see if a cobbler can make the strap longer. The inside support surprises me. It feels like I can wear them without my molded Sole insoles. Beautiful shoes (too bad they're made in China - not a fan of supporting them - and the quality control is obviously poor) I hope they send me two shoes that match in length this time, I really love them otherwise, and am so hard to fit. (Very high flexible arches, very high instep.)
The second pair is wearable, but ... Both shoes of the new pair match each-other...
BUT... the new pair is much narrower through the front of the foot than the first pair! The first pair had lots of room for toes / feet to spread out and relax - the second pair is skin-tight. :-( Both shoes in the new pair are more than one-quarter inch longer in the toe area than the longest shoe in the first pair. Shockingly, even though the strap on the first pair was a little short - this strap is ample in length.
I'm keeping the second pair because I'm desperate for shoes, but this is really shoddy workmanship and quality control - especially for a company that sells high prices shoes such as these. I have been pulling and tugging and rubbing the leather as hard as I can to stretch it and it is working, but it is leaving slight stretch marks in the leather. I'll have to live with it.
I wish there was some-where local I could try and buy - the hassles of having to go to UPS to return rejects isn't convenient. (There shouldn't be rejects for quality control at this price-point!). Maybe they should go with an American work-force and stop importing from China.
The second pair of shoes are a joy to wear. I spent 9 straight hours in them at an outdoor wedding, no stockings, high heat day, walking up and down uneven lawn and around ponds etc. The shoes were totally comfortable, completely supportive, and never rubbed anywhere. Granted, I did prep the shoes by rubbing them by hand to stretch the leather - but this was the first time I wore them on my feet for more than 15 minutes. :-) Love these shoes.
