this shoe is everything. they don't look cheap at all. Gwen is a genius. It's the perfect shoe for summer. Dress them up with a cute summer dress or go casual with a nice pair of jeans or jumpsuit. I wear 7-71/2 and I tried 7 but they were too small. my foot is a little wide so I exchanged for 7 1/2 and they fit perfectly. So I'd recommend getting a half size bigger if you have a wide foot.
