Will probably keep the half a size up. We shall see over time how well these shoes will keep up. I would like it more if these shoes were more wider. I hope they will stretch. I had ordered shoes you had in the summer that were navy. I returned the navy ones and was waiting for these to go on sale. Glad i waited but still wish they were wider. They seem some what comfortable. I don't have dressy shoes so i hope these i will be able to wear them with something semi dressy. I wish you would change the choices they are some what just right not just right.
