I guess what I have a problem with as this is the second pair of unisex shoes I've purchased, the other was a pair of Crocs flip-flops. You might get the length correct, but at least for me the width is too wide for a woman's foot. I wear an 8 1/2-9 shoe and ordered the 8 1/2. I felt it was like a flip flop which I did not like so I returned for a size 8. Now my toe is right up against the top of the shoe but not much flip flopping. I will keep these and they will be OK for gardening shoes.
