Blue shoes that run very small
- Familiarity: I returned this product before using it
I ordered these shoes online based on their description and technical specs and they seem to be very high quality; unfortunately, I had to return them due to the size being way off. I am anywhere from a 7-8 in shoes, depending on brand, but a solid 7.5 in the majority of them all. I could not get my foot into the size 7.5 that arrived. With the rock guard there is no give at all. I could not tell what color these were online but they are very blue in person. They are a nice blue, not too loud, but I had hoped they were a gray black, not slate/blue. I would expect to wear a full size up in these shoes. These shoes are heavy and appear to be very well made, just be aware of the sizing issues.
These are a lot bluer than they appear online. Also, the toe is super curved (a lot more so than it looks like online) so they are really uncomfortable. I usually wear an 8.5 bought a 9 and these were so small. Really bummed.
