These shoes are perfect, I got a size 8.5 and my usual shoe size is an 8. I could have gotten a size 8 and probably would have been fine. The only reason I rated a 3 star is because shoes looked like they were used. They are still pretty clean but they did not seem brand new. Other reviews said that the strap across the toes were tight, I do not have that issue. I would say that you have to have a pretty slim foot though. Other than that I really like this shoe.
