I usually wear size 6 or 6 1/2 for flats and sandals and bought these shoes in a size 6. They fit true to size. The shoe colors don't match the website pics. I got the beige color, and it is similar to the taupe pictured online. It's not as yellow as the beige pic but a light, nude tone in person. I think the taupe is a darker, brown color in person.
They fit perfectly and are very comfortable. The inside is lightly padded, and it isn't uncomfortable to walk with the chunky heel. The band over your toes is wide and doesn't squeeze your feet in. The material is a soft suede, and the zipper slides up easily. I like the nice stud details.
There is a big design flaw with the fringe. When you walk, the fringe flips up and gets stuck in the top of the shoe. This can be very annoying, and you might have to keep taking the strands out. I knew this would drive me nuts, and I didn't want to return these cute shoes. I did a simple diy where I took some beige thread and tied the studs of three or four consecutive fringe pieces together. I repeated this around the shoe. Now when I walk, the groups of fringe are too heavy to fly up and get stuck, but there is still wonderful movement.
If you don't mind the fringe issue, I would recommend these shoes. They are comfortable and sexy--a tough combination to find in shoes.
