I ordered an eight in these shoes and I was really worried they wouldn't fit. They zip up in the back and all the straps are adjustable. I opted for an 8 versus an 8.5 fearing they'd run big. Once I adjusted the straps they fit perfectly! Absolutely love them and the came within three days. Definitely get them, they're cute. I would buy at least a 1/2 smaller than what you're used to though.
