Since the shoe only came in one size (big downfall!) I ordered that size, although it was a size too small. I read the reviews and one reviewer said the shoes ran big about a half a size- so they did fit, although my toes were a bit cramped, which was completely my fault, but I needed cute shoes for a wedding I was in. They held up for the whole night and only seem minimally damaged- they 'ribbon' part is easily scratched, but the mesh part of the shoe is very durable and the soles seem to be as well. They are not the most comfortable, nor the least comfortable pair of flats I have worn. For the price they are very nice and very cute!
