On a positive note first: The shoes look great in person. The sizing was spot on. Now for the negative and this WAS the deal breaker for me. The shoes wreak of a dizzying odor of gasoline perhaps from the chemical used to treat the fake leather material that was used on the shoes. The minute I opened the box, the strong odor immediately enveloped the room in my house. I had to wash my hands thoroughly to rid of the strong gasoline odor. I didn't (couldn't) even try the shoes on. To make matters worse, I have to be dinged for returning it so I basically threw away money for nothing... or more like, I paid $15.00 to check out the shoes in the comfort of my home. Oh well, the price of shopping online.
