I loved these shoes for several reasons: I could put them on without bending, just slipping my foot into the shoe; they did not hurt my feet after dancing at a wedding for several hours and they look and feel terrific. My first pair of shoes I would give A+.I ordered a WW width and a 1/2 size larger. All in all it was a perfect fit. To be able to dance again at 70+. Now off to ballroom dancing lessons.
