I have bought shoes from AE before, including this season. I usually wear an 8.5W. When I tried other shoes on in the store, I fit 8W. After reading reviews here, I ordered the 8WW as listed on the site. I couldn't wait to get these shoes and bring them on my vacation. Sadly, I couldn't even get my foot into the shoe. I would say it's actually a regular size 8, which I would never try on because I know that wouldn't fit. I know some of the shoes fit big, so I'm not sure what happened here. As others said they are beautiful shoes in person, nice enough that I might just order the 9 because I like them so much. The two stars are only because compared to the other two 8W I have from AE this year, this size is vastly different.
