I am absolutely in love with these shoes. The note about sizing up is definitely true- I also ended up needing to get the wide width too. Overall, these are without a doubt my favorite and most comfortable character shoes. I recently sprained my ankle, and was hoping for a shoe with support, and these shoes deliver! They have such a professional look and quality, and are about $100 cheaper than any other similar character shoe.
Truly the ONLY slightly negative aspect to know is the caramel is definitely a darker tan. If you are pale like me, they will stand out a little more than regular tan shoes. Ultimately, these are incredible and I highly recommend them!
