I've ordered shoes in the past and they've always fit me quite well with no problems. This is the first time the shoes were a bit on the snug side. Still, they are an excellent lightweight knock around shoe and well worth the price. They are surprisingly durable and comfortable despite their being a bit on the small side. Perhaps this style runs smaller than average. Next time I'll order it a half size larger, just for the sake of comfort. But all in all, I am very satisfied with these shoes.
