I just received these in the post. They looked nice out of the box. I ordered a size 39, which was a little snug. I normally wear a 40, but there were none available so I took a chance and went a size down. They weren't too uncomfortable after trying them on, nothing some breaking in wouldn't fix. I'd say they fit true to size. Unfortunately, as I tried walking in them, the heel of the left shoe separated from the sole. It appears either it's not well made, or it was defective in some way. The heel is made of cheap plastic, and fastened by 4 nails, but they pulled out of the plastic. Glad it happened while I was trying them on as opposed to out and about.
