Customer Reviews

Comments: This style actually is a smaller fit than other ones. I usually fit in size 6.5 in all NB shoes. However, this time, 6.5 seems a bit small to me. I went home and measure the new shoes I bought to 2 other pairs of NB I have at home. They are actually smaller, even though all 3 pairs are size 6.5
