The shoe is very pretty, I tried it on and thought it would be comfortable to wear for an extended period. I tried the shoe on when it arrived, late in the afternoon, and again in mid-morning, it seemed to be a good fit. On the day of my daughter's wedding, I was dressed and ready to go, put the shoe on and as I tried to walk, the shoe practically fell off my foot. My mistake was to have tried them on without stockings, with stockings on I couldn't wear them. Since I was at my daughter's house, I rushed home to put on an old pair of black shoes I had in the closet. Can't return because I did wear them from the house to the car and back into the house! I suggest that if you plan on wearing stockings, try the shoe on with stockings!
