I don't recommend trying this experiment at home!
"I absolutely love the cute appearance of this shoe with its stylish buckle and wedge heel, but it is extremely, excruciatingly uncomfortable to wear. The faux leather upper is miserable and will not "give" in any way to adjust to your foot. Due to their adorable looks, I am keeping my pair, against my better judgment, in a determined effort to find some way to "break" them in! They would be so fun to wear if I can just make them easier on my feet. I've never before kept a shoe because of how attractive it was if it was uncomfortable, but I am going to with these, just to experiment with them. I may end up giving them to a daughter with a narrower foot if I can't make them work for me. They definitely run narrow, and the faux leather means that they don't want to change shape at all to fit your unique foot shape. They are a 5- star in looks, but only 1- star in comfort, so I will give them a 2- star rating because I can't get past how uncomfortable they are at this point in time. I know it is nearly impossible to stretch and "soften" this shoe, but I just have to try. They would be superbly cute if your feet are narrow enough and just happen to fit the exact shape that the shoe currently is designed to be, if you buy them with no expectation that they ever "conform" to your unique foot. If they weren't so irresistibly cute, I would have returned them. As it is, I am waging my own war against faux leather in an effort to make these Cinderella shoes fit! Hey, it might happen!"

didn't work for me
"I had tried these in a smaller size in a store and thought for sure the next size up would fit. They just seemed overall too small. I did like the looks, though."

cute but too long
"The buckle is cute. The overall material feels cheap. Big gap in the back, foot slips out. I may be able to go one size down and wider but not loving the quality of pretend leather."
