These are a great pair of shoes. I read a lot of reviews and many said to buy 1 size smaller so I took a chance and did. They fit me perfectly! They molded to my foot pretty quickly. Supportive, aesthetically pleasing, and easy quick tie(slide), these shoes have served me well on trails, grass, pavement. I would have given them a 5 if they had a tad more cushion...I like them soft like pillows.
