I should have read the other reviews first and ordered a 1/2 size up! I'm normally a 7.5 wide and these fit just right sockless. However, the knit trim makes these more of a fall/winter mule in my opinion, and even with thin socks these mules felt tighter in the toe box and my heel hung over the shoe just a little. My feet are wide and I have high arches--the leather gave a bit so they weren't too tight in the toe box or across the top of my foot, two major troublespots for my feet. While these are not a wide shoe, they are a little more wide than a medium width shoe. If your foot is on the narrow side, get your exact size and wear with thicker socks. The insoles are sueded so there's no foot slippage like with Dansko or Sanita mules. What's so cool about these shoes is from the outside they don't look clunky and the soles seem thin and quite streamlined. This gives them a casual but feminine appeal so they're not Unisex-looking (think, masculine) like Birkenstocks. The additional marvelous surprise is the highly supportive footbed that is hidden inside the shoe--great arch support like Orthaheel shoes. They're very cute with funky knee-high socks/hosiery and cuffed skinny jeans, leggings, a skirt, etc. I selected the caramel color which still goes with everything without being too severe.
