The shoes I bought are definitely good quality; however, I wear 8.5 and received 9.5 wide. Also, the band across the top of the foot was a bit wider than my old pair and has glass beads stitched on. Due to the width of the band and the beads, it was uncomfortable. The edge of the band and the edge of the glass beads scratched the skin on top of my foot. I am diabetic and have plantar fascistic and cannot risk an injury to my foot. Otherwise, the shoe is great. Great materials and good quality. My old shoes are very similar to the new ones (without beads) and have served me well for the past year.
