I love these shoes, so it was terribly disappointing when I tried them on and loved everything BUT the stitching across the toes. The shoe fit my 8.5 foot perfectly. The back of the shoe is comfortable on my heel, the footbed is cushy and really quite supportive for a flat, and the style is adorable . The one and only drawback is the seam across the top of my foot that ties in the cris-crossed elastic and the canvas toe of the shoe. Each step the stitching was almost "sawing" across my toe and it hurt. Before giving up and just shipping them back I decided to try to make them work for me by purchasing a pair of gel-cushion pads like you'd use for the heel of a shoe that keeps slipping up and down. The pads have worked for me in the past so I put the pad inside the shoe to cover the stitching that was giving me the trouble. To my delight it solved the problem! Being that it is a canvas shoe there's a limit to the amount of stretch I can expect, and no matter what the stitching will still be there, BUT the gel pad is comfortable and it allowed me to keep a pair of shoes I really, really love. I wear them with shorts, jeans, summer dresses.
I bought these for work and casual wear. They are soooo comfortable and always look nice. They remind me of my college days. Keds are great and look great. I even slip them on without socks like I did when I was a youngster and headed for a day at the beach. Keds are freedom...........................
