I love this shoe! Yes, it does run small...I usually wear a size 9, but had to get a 9.5 for a CORRECT fit, but it is exactly the kind of summer sandal that i have been looking for. I wanted a sandal that was white, open toed and had a very stable heel pad. It is very comfortable, and I did not have to "break it in". Also, the shoe was delivered within 2-3 days of ordering-Fast service! this is a high quality, well made shoe and i plan on ordering other colors.
