These shoes are cute for work, which is hard to find! I really wanted to try these on in a store before buying but I had to order them. When they came I noticed a really strong glue/chemical smell as soon as I cut through the packaging tape! The smell became completely unbearable when I pulled the shoes out of the box to try them on. They ran small but not enough for me to return them so I ignored that. I put them outside to in the shade/wind to air out and after a few hours the smell got better but was still very strong! Figuring the smell would eventually go away I tried the shoes around my house only to realize how uncomfortable they were. They hurt the top of my foot above my big toe so bad it even left a red mark that would have for sure blistered if I tried to wear them all day at work. Unfortunately I had to return these and didn't think they were worth exchanging for another size. I realize this review doesn't begin to express the trouble I had with these shoes but I never write reviews and these were so disappointing that I had to write this. I really wanted these and after everything I still wanted to give these shoes a chance but there's no way I would've been able to wear them all day at work and the smell was indescribable!
