I have wide feet & these sandals in the wide size were perfect for me. I ordered an 8W and they fit great. I am a size 8, but find I need to get a larger size in other brands I've ordered. These truly seem to be an 8. The straps all adjusted, which is really nice. The back strap, toe strap and top strap are all adjustable with Velcro. Which means no break in time should be necessary. And if the straps do stretch a bit they can always be tightened down. I like a dressy sandal that is also comfortable. Theses are exactly what I was hoping to find for my next cruise.
