Most Helpful Customer Reviews
these are every bit as cute in person as they are in photo. The colors are vivid and the gold glitter souls are just too much fun. What you can't see in the photos is how comfortable they are. They do run a little big/wide but I would rather error on the side of slightly too big than too small when it comes to shoes. I wouldn't say they run large enough to warrant buying a full size smaller. The fabric is beautiful and as long as you don't plan to wear these to play soccer or slog through puddles I think it should wear well. (Though I do play spray mine down with Scotch gaurd. These shoes are just too beautiful not to spend a little extra effort taking care of).
I ordered a smaller size because at the time I ordered them, there was no reviews on this style, and I based choosing a smaller size on the multiple reviews of the same shoe but different patterns. Well, that was a mistake. This shoe was not cut big and was not wide in width, like so many reviews of other patterns stated. I was very upset that I didn't just go up a half size and what I normally would have done had I not read that these shoes were cut so big. I wear 8 1/2 sneaker and 9 dress shoe. I ordered the 8...it was a true 8, and was rather narrow in the toe. So I had to return. I just ordered a size 9. My fear is that this time, I will get a huge shoe. We shall see. I cannot blame the company for me listening to other purchasers experiences YET! I'm rating a 4 star because had their shoes been made the same across the board, and people would have been able to order their true size, I wouldn't be going through the hassle of sending back, getting a refund and reordering. Speaking...
I have 3 pairs of Chocolaticas and I absolutely love them. They are comfortable enough to wear all day and they always get compliments. I do add my own arch support, but I have to do that with almost all shoes. My feet are wide in the front and narrow in the back, so I almost always wear Mary Jane style flats. Otherwise I can't keep them on my feet. Hope this helps.
