I should have purchased a size 8; yes, that is my fault. I can not exchange the shoes from a 71/2 to 8; I am not sure why since the 8 is in stock. So, in order to get the size 8, I would have to return the size 71/2, pay for the return myself and then re-purchase size 8. I have never had to do this with any purchase I have made in my life. This is my first- and last-time ordering. No more business from me.
They fit a bit smaller than I'd expect, but a half size up would feel too big and clunky. I'll wear thing socks. Can't wait to wear this fall
