1.) The sizing is slightly off, all over the shoe. My foot is between an 8.5 and a 9, but in this shoe I needed between a 9 and a 9.5. (For some reason, Steve Madden shoes seem to run quite short in length.) Ultimately I ended up with the 9.5 so that my toe wouldn't touch the side of the toebox, but the heel cup was so huge that my heel lifted out of the shoe with every step.
2.) The opening of the shoe is fairly small, so you need to practice getting your foot in. This is not a shoe you can put on with one hand or no hands.....and it's not the shoe you want to wear in an airport security line. There are no zippers, and the material to the front and rear of the cutout notches is fairly rigid, so it is difficult to wiggle your foot into the opening.
3.) Despite the rigidity of the opening, the suede itself is quite thin and flimsy. I walked around the living room for less than 30 minutes, and the suede was already noticeably stretching out around the bony contours of my foot. That made me worry about how much the suede might stretch out after a few weeks or months. Since the heel cup is already so loose and floppy, I can't afford to have too much stretch in the suede, or else my entire foot will lift out of the shoe once the opening loosens up.
On the bright side, the hidden wedge is very clever and comfortable. Since the eye is drawn downwards to the notch, it appears that your foot is planted right above the white rubber sole, and the 1" wedge is completely invisible to anyone viewing your foot from a distance. It feels like wearing a flat shoe, but you get the benefits of 2 extra inches of height (1 inch sole + 1 inch wedge).
