I typically wear a 10.5 but bought these at a size 10 since no half size was available. Found they fit snugly but not painfully so. That said, one shoe did rub the back of my heel a bit but not to the point of blistering or lasting irritation (and I wore these for around 5 hours). Still, I would recommend moleskin for the first few wears if you notice the shoes
fit you snugly. These shoes
would be fine for casual walking but, as other reviewers have noted, they can easily slip off if one isn't careful. I believe it's the combo of the soft upper canvas material with the stiff, thick sole
that make them slightly difficult to maneuver in until you get the hang of it (e.g. you'll need to keep
your feet a bit stiffer when climbing stairs to keep
from slipping off when you lift your foot). Again, these are great for running errands, going shopping, going to the movies, etc. I wore these with leggings and two-tone knit top with ruching on the sides and got tons of compliments. They are as cute in person as they are in the pictures.
