Before I put these shoes
on, I was impressed with how cute they were, but it took about one second after putting my foot in the first one, to get it OFF! Really tight toe box, very loose heel, and guess
what: the laces are nonfunctional! So if you're planning on an oxford that you can lace up to fit your foot, forget it. I have narrow, flexible feet, and it's really important to me to have lace-ups that lace (same thing with so-called "adjustable" Velcro straps that are actually made to be used in only the position that they came in). Another thing that may escape your attention when looking at these on the website is that the shoe is cut very low, not like a traditional oxford at all. It amazes me that none of the reviews I looked at mentioned any of these extremely pertinent points. I was also surprised at how many people liked the shoes
. I ordered them in a 9 (my usual size) and a 9.5 to be sure I would get the correct size, and they ran really large except for the toe box. The shoes
are stiff and very uncomfortable. But they are very nice-looking, and the color (the light pinkish tan) is very pretty. If they fit you, lucky you!
