These shoes are so very cute. I like my shoes a little snug especially when wearing heels, so that they don't slip in the back, but these were a little different. I was fine in them for the first 3 1/2 hrs, but then my toe nails started to hurt. I don't know if it's because these shoes are synthetic, so don't give much or because my nails were too long. Either way I couldn't wear a size larger and I will definately wear them again, I just need to cushion my toes a little.
