I wanted a sling back that covers my toes (not open toe) and also with round toes, which are so difficult to find in my size. My feet are slim but since these did not come in that width, I went for a narrow one size down, hoping that it would support my feet from sliding forward. Though size is a bit small, the width is snug, which is important in keeping feet from sliding. I just hope that the sides will not stretch, so I can enjoy these for a long time.
The reason for 4 stars is compared with the wedge sandal I bought together and Valerie (which I bought from a different store), the pillows are smaller and less arch support. I wish it had the same cushioning.
