These are, without a doubt, one of the most comfortable pairs of shoes I've ever worn. I live in rural Quebec, and my house is on a dirt road, so I need shoes that can pull double duty for both comfort and sturdiness. These do both, and pair as well with jeans as they do long skirts. I normally wear a size 9, so that's what I ordered: they fit perfectly with a light pair of socks, but they're also comfortable barefoot. The toe is roomy but the heel hugs my foot so it doesn't slip out when I'm walking. I'm considering ordering a second pair solely for indoor use!
