I rarely get shoes in the mail that are better than what I can find in a retail store, but these are one of those rare finds. They are a perfect 8.5B, and although I prefer size 8C I can fit into 8.5B reasonably comfortably, and these shoes are exactly that. They are lined with silver lame, have a silver tone oval buckle, 3 buckle holes, and elastic at the buckle to allow a little extra latitude in size. The sole is leather and the toe bed is slightly ribbed for a little extra traction. Stitching is perfect, no glue hanging out either. They came shipped with lots of padding and special inserts to protect the ruffle. These are one of the nicest shoes I've ver had, not to mention one of the nicest things I've ever bought on O. Buy some, you won't be disappointed. They are just fancy enough to be fashionable yet classy too. In years to come the ruffle could probably be easily removed with a razor blade and a shoe ornament put on or smaller decoration for more seasons of use. The only issue I had was the ruffle on one shoe was not quite folded right to cover the seam in the ruffle, at the toe end, so I re-ruffled and put a bit of water on it and now it is perfect.
