okay so some context: I live in Hawaii and wear Birkenstock's %110 of the time. I have a VERY wide foot, seriously, think a equilateral triangle with toes. So, I have a hard time finding closed shoes that work for me when I have to travel to cold places. I purchased these booties for upcoming travel to New Zealand in August (their winter/spring) and I'm currently wearing them at the office for the first time out of the house. They are a little tight in places and the arch support could be better, but I can wiggle my toes (with socks on!) and move my foot which is amazing! They are adorable and I'm hoping the tight spots stretch with time and wear. so all in all, good job keen, thank you for making shoes for real feet.
