I usually wear a size 8.5. Before I ordered these shoes on Overstock, i went to my local store and tried a pair on to be sure of the size. I fit perfectly into a size 8 instead. So, I ordered two pairs of these in size 8 from Overstock. These shoes received great rating all over the place. Then when I tried them on at the local store, the employee in the shoe department said "all we girls have these shoes because we are on our feet all day and they are very comfortable". They did not disappoint! I have tired achy feet problems and back problems. These shoes hold up when I am out shopping!!! They are one of the best shoes, if not the best and most comfortable shoes I've ever owned!
