I wanted to like these, as the foot bed was really comfortable. The strap fit, but the material just rubbed too much. After 30 minutes I started to get sores, and I knew there was no "breaking them in." I have a pretty average foot 7.5/8 narrow to normal width. I see why people say they are too small. The toe box has more room than the heel, but the next size up would have been way to big.
