I was so disappointed that I couldn't find a size to fit me. I had the previous version of this shoe in a 9 for years and loved it. I wore it without a sock, and it was comfortable for walking around town or working out in the gym. The new 9 was too small, so I exchanged for the 9.5. This one fit when I stood still, but rubbed a bit on the heel when I walked. I put on a thin footie, which allowed my foot to move without irritation, but eventually the shoe pulled the sock in. Had to return them.

I have a size 9 in another Privo style, but the size 9 in the Polar Snow was too small. You will need to order at least a half size larger.

Just a warning, these run very narrow! I do not have a particularly wide foot but sometimes I can be picky about room in the toe box. These run very narrow and are tight across my big toe joint. Others are saying order 1/2 size larger but so far that has not helped me. I need a wide, in my normal size. Alas, they are out of the color I want so I will need to keep searching... I do have another pair of Privos but those are my normal size no problem. I don't know what it is about this style.

I have purchased other shoes/sandals by Privo and they are great. I ordered these in a size 6, (1/2 size larger than what I normally wear. They were so tight across the foot (almost felt like a vise). Even though they are going back, Zappos is the best place to shop for shoes!

Good looking walking shoe. Picked these as I already had a pair of Clarks slip-ons (medium width) that were really comfortable. Glad I picked the wide fitting for this style. Only problem I have is that one side of the tongue on the right shoe rolls in as I put the shoe on. Takes time to straighten out as the fit at the base of the tongue is quite tight. Other than that they are very comfortable now they are broken in.

So far I have tried these in a 7½ (way too small), an 8 (tight across the ball of my foot) and an 8½. Still too tight. Now I am waiting for them to be available in a wide. I normally wear a medium but these are just too narrow for some reason. I have another pair of Privos in a winter style that are terrific. However they do not go with shorts so I was trying to get these for summer vacations and sightseeing. They are far more streamlined than most walking shoes and will be far easier to pack. If I can ever get them in my size!

I love these shoes! I originally bought a size 10, having second thoughts about the remarks others made about these running small. Still, when you wear a size 10, there is no option to order a half size up. When I received them they were really small, so small that I was willing to bet that an 11 just might not be too big. I was right. And because of the configuration of the shoe, they do not look like size 11 battleships. They are comfortable and good looking. What more could one ask?

Ordered this along with the Skechers Biker Verified in a similar color. Much prefer the Privos, but alas, the 7.5 was too small, and the 8 is not available. Of course, the 8 in the Skechers is too big. I can't win for losing. I have a black pair of Privos for winter and I love them. I was looking for something summery to walk in on vacation, so I don't have to lug my running shoes around. These will be perfect when I can find them to fit!

I had an older version of these shoes that needed replacing. The size 10 was a full size too small (had previously had a 10 and am almost always a 10) so I ordered an 11. They fit in length, but the shoe is much stiffer and the area around the ankle is much higher than my previous ones. I could tell the stiff edges were going to rub my ankle bones so I sent back. The style alterations over the years also made them look a little more stodgy than before, so that's why I didn't just order some inserts that would make my foot rest higher.

I bought a pair of these last year and I loved them. Unfortunately, so did my pup! This year, I thought I was purchasing the same shoes, but the fit is not the same; I tried two sizes; I returned the 8½ and wore the 8 for a couple days which was too many to be able to return them. They are cute and comfortable if you can find the right fit!

I've been wearing Privo for a long time and have always been happy with the comfort and instant fit of my size. The Polar Snow however, is way too small. Big disappointment.

These are cute and serve as a nicer alternative to running sneakers, but they run small. I usually wear an 8.5 or a 9. I got a different pair of Privos in an 8.5 and had to return them. I thought going up a half size would be enough, but these are still a bit tight. I'm hoping they'll loosen as I wear them, because I want to love them. Comfy shoes that aren't comfortable, though, are not very useful.

I am always a 7.5, but these were very tight, especially on the top of my foot and in the heel. I switched them for an 8 and they fit much better. I have purchased other Clarks shoes in 7.5 and they have fit.

Nice looking but I ordered my normal size 8 after reading reviews and it is much too small and narrow. Had to be returned and they didn't have a bigger size.

I have an older pair of these shoes and love them. They are size 8 and fit me great. I ordered these in an 8 and they were significantly smaller.

Based on other reviews, I ordered the wide version. They were too big and are going back. :( I don't consider them to be a narrow shoe.

I have other Clarks Privo shoes and I have to say that this one is small and uncomfortable compared to them. Also, it has a lot of plastic looking leather and is not worth the price.

Love thus shoe! Perfect fit for my narrow foot. Even accommodates my orthotics. Not only comfortable but a great looking shoe with smart casual attire.

I love Zappos, received this shoe in one day, however, the left shoe left a blister on my heel. I needed them for a trip. Sorry, back they go.
