I NEVER leave reviews because I’ve never had issues with products or feel the need to make something known… In this case where all the reviews are slightly conflicting I feel like I should.I normally wear a size 9.5 in athletic shoes AND heels. A size 10 is usually too big, and a size 9 is too small. I have medium width feet… probably closer on the width spectrum to a wide foot rather than narrow. In this case I bought a 10. My toes don’t overhang and actually have about 3/4 of space between the tip to my toe. I’m sure a 9.5 would have been perfect if it existed.I was unsure when buying these shoes because this company seems to create a lot of other heels with very off shoe sizing, and even though this one seemed to have the best reviews with some people saying the size fit as expected, I was still wary. My heels arrived today and I quickly opened the box (which was in fine condition) and pulled them out. As soon as I put them on I noticed the tight and narrow front, but after you wiggle into them the vinyl gives a bit. After about 10 minutes of wearing them I noticed my baby toes feeling like the life was being sucked out of them. It’s vinyl… what can you expect! But here’s the tip no one seems to share… you can stretch out vinyl to actually being comfortable. Just grab your hairdryer and blow warm air on the tight strap for a few seconds until its soft and quickly place your foot in them. Keep them on for a minimum of 20mins while standing in them (so your weight is all in the ball of your foot keeping the vinyl stretched). Presto! Perfect competition shoes that are as comfortable as you’re ever going to get!
