I ordered another style of shoe and it was out of stock and it is still not in stock so I settled for this shoe. Sometimes things happen for a reason. I love this shoe. I wear an orthotic insole in all my shoes and this shoe easily accommodates the orthotic and the shoe is stylish. It looks great with jeans and it has a solid feel so I can use it for short hikes or long walks. Because I spend a lot of time outdoors and in casual wear, this shoe is a good choice.

Bought these for my daughter and my son for Christmas. Both pairs have already started to wear out quite a bit. The rubber has separated from the canvas on both pairs right at the ball of their foot.

These shoes are super cute! I got the navy embroidered bird design. They are a fun way to add a little pop to my wardrobe. They fit true to size.

I ordered a half size larger than normal, thinking I'd wear these with a padded insole for comfort. They were too tight across the top of my foot even without an extra insole.

NARROW TOE BOX! so many reviews said these shoes were OK for people with slightly wide feet... I normally get a D width (normal men's width) and these squeezed and rubbed my pinky toe. The shoes are good, just not for wide feet.

I love these shoes, they was sort of tight when I first wore them. After walking around in them for a few days, they became wearable.
