Nice color but slightly frumpy Mary Jane
on February 11, 2015
The storm blue is a nice medium grey,and is fairly soft leather.
The arch support is a fairly good one for my medium low arches.
The buckle gives plenty of flexibility unlike those Velcro fasteners that do not always allow much adjustment in the comfort zone.
It is a cute shoe in a somewhat matronly way.
The shoe is sometimes comfortable.
The shoe runs large, especially in width. I typically wear a size 7 1/2 wide in many brands,and sometimes an 8 medium works. I bought a size 7 1/2 M in this shoe. It fits fairly well side-to-side across the ball of my foot, but is a bit wider than I like. I do have some extra wiggle toe room in length. It is much too wide across the arch area causing the sides to gap open. I have to fasten the strap at the tightest hole to insure the shoe staying on my foot, and this increases the gap. The heel of the shoe is way too wide for my narrow heel. The shoe slips up and down every step I take.
It is on the heavy side.
After wearing this shoe several times, I edited my review to update how I now feel about the sizing. I found that the strap at the inside of the buckle end really digs into my foot and becomes quite painful when the strap is adjusted at the tightest hole. As the strap continues to stretch with wear, perhaps that will not be an issue. However, in order to keep the shoe on my foot,the strap must be tight.
Win some....lose some. This shoe may very well work for some people, but it is not one of my favorites by any means.
