After reading the reviews and being between sizes, I decided to buy this shoe in my smaller size. I found these shoes to be narrow and tight over the top of the foot. They fit OK if I took the easily--perhaps too easily-- removable insole, but part of the reason for buying this kind of shoe is the insole. Under the insole--which is really just shaped cardboard--it is completely shapeless, thus once the insole breaks down you won't even have a semblance of support. I also found they rubbed a hole next to my ankle bone within minutes of wearing.
They look nicer online than in person. I wondered if they would stretch with wear, but they didn't look like real leather. I went searching for a evidence that they were leather (as implied in the description) but all I could find said synthetic. They are casual, but would work for business-casual offices.
If these shoes had fit comfortably I would have kept them, but there were too many drawbacks to this shoe.
