These are a really nice shoe! If they fit, I would have given 5 stars. 7.5 ALWAYS fits me. The 7.5 in these is a bit too short. And there is NO WAY these are wide!!! It would be generous to say they are medium width. I actually think they are closer to narrow. The way the suede and fabric are sewn makes the part that goes across the widest part of the foot very tight. I will try 1/2 size up if they go on sale again, and that's just because I like them so much..you know, the "I love these so much" feeling that you just want them to fit! :( Just for reference, Medium width usually fits fine, but I have some metatarsal probs that require a wide width.
