I read that the shoe runs a little small but I thought with me being a size 8 that it somehow wouldn't apply to me. Wrong. Definitely should have gotten and 8 1/2. It's not a dramatic size smaller, but it's definitely tight at the toe where if I wear it for a certain amount of hours it becomes very uncomfortable. But other than that, they are comfortable and SUPER cute! I bare through the pain or wear them when I know I won't be walking much.
