This shoe is very cute and comfortable, and the blue is exactly as pictured. I needed a replacement casual shoe that is more practical when out and about with my new baby. I normally wear a 9, and found the EU 9 very large. I exchanged them for an 8.5 (also had a 8.5-9, but were out.). I guess that means I went about a full size down. The toe area is wider than most casual style sneakers I have had in the past, but they were roomy in the toe area and very comfortable. The exchange was quick, pleasant, and easy. Great company!
