I enjoy wearing these shoes on a daily basis. There is plenty of width around the metatarsal area and front of the foot which I need. Comfortable casual shoe for everyday use, social occasions and driving in. This shoe fits well. I take a 44 or 9.5 (UK) when I would probably use a 9 for a formal stiff shoe, just to give myself the extra room and comfort. I often wear a light walking sock with them. They go well with casual or smart casual clothes. I like the idea that they are water proof to allow me to walk on wet grass and along the tow path in the UK.
