I love this shoes. it runs true to size - I got a 9.5. The only thing that bothers me is that the ankle strap is very wide and loose. I had to take it to a shoe repair to get the strap shortened to fit my ankles. Granted I do have narrow feet & small ankles but this was so lose that the shoe was flopping on my heel when I walked. But since I got it fixed I LOVE this shoe. If you have thicker ankles this shoe should be fine.
