Got these shoes a while back and agree that they do take a bit of wearing before they will feel right. I am consistently a size 9.5 and they are a little snug, but I fear that a larger size would not stay on my feet. Also, the insoles are bumpy, while I am not sure what the purpose of these bumps serves I do know that they can be a somewhat unforgiving especially when working an 8 hour shift at coffee shop (i.e. on your feet all day). But I do still wear them to work regularly so it must not be that bad right? Maybe the fact that they are so freaking cute and go with just about anything makes it all worth it?!
