I am shocked. These shoes fit, I love the style, the heal is the PERFECT size etc. However, I wore these shoes trudging around San Francisco yesterday - the reviewer who mentioned the sole deficiency was 100% correct. The soles are either too thin or too hard. The balls of my feet were KILLING me by the end of the day. Granted, I'm 56 years old- so I guess that the bottom of my feat are more sensitive than a 21 year old. I usually wear Sesto, Munro, but these were so adorable that I couldn't pas them up. Now- I'm stuck with them. Ugh.
UPDATE: I purchased some leather liners to pad the inner soles. The shoes are no longer torture to wear- in fact, they are very comfy. Please Please Please New Balance- People buy your shoes expecting comfort. Don't go cheap on the soles.
Sizing Tips: Your heel should fit snug with no slipping. The midfoot of the shoe under your arch and over the top of your foot should be snug but not tight. You should have enough room in the toe box to wiggle your toes. Feet typically get bigger with age. We encourage you to have your feet measured every year. Women's feet often become a half-size (or more) larger after pregnancy. Your left and right feet may differ in length or width as much as a full size. Be sure to measure and try shoes on both feet, and always buy shoes to fit your larger foot.
