About the sizing issue, Amazon/Bloch have an incorrect Euro to US size conversion chart, which is why a lot of people have said this runs small. For example, they convert a Euro 37 to a US 7, when actually the real conversion is supposed to be a US size 6. So, the shoe runs pretty much true to size if you just convert your US size to the Euro size correctly. I usually wear a size 7 in US shoes (sometimes 6.5) and I got a "7.5/37.5." It was definitely very snug but it has already started to stretch a bit. I probably could have gone with a "8.0/38" (which is actually supposed to be 7.0/38) as well and it would have been slightly looser.
Overall the quality is superb, the style is timeless, and I anticipate these will get a lot of rotation in my wardrobe and last a long time.
