This is a really nice shoe. Like most any shoe that fits the front of my foot properly, the heel is too big, but not as bad as with most shoes, and the strap is close enough to the ankle to keep the shoe on with no problem. I love the bronze color, which has a bit of a kick but can still be used as a neutral. There is plenty of room in the toe box. The leather seems to be of good quality, which is why I checked that the shoe is durable. My only gripe is that I wish the front of the footbed were denser and a little more resilient. I have some foot problems that make that important, but there is enough cushioning that I think I'll keep them, and don't think this would even be an issue for most people. I have a bunion on one foot that causes me to send a lot of shoes back, but whether it's because of where the leather hits the top part of my foot above the bunion or because the leather isn't stiff, this isn't an issue with this shoe.
