Shoe would be perfect if not for the cardboard texture of the impossibly stiff leather. The other reviewers were right these rub your Achilles raw. I could not make these comfortable to even walk across my bedroom even with moleskin padding added to heel strap because the leather is so stiff it digs into your ankle/ Achilles. Did not dare wear out & wisely returned. Not sure how you could break these in. I am short and have thin ankles, so maybe proportion is just off.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Dresser Classic looking but painful!
I wore these for roughly three hours and did a fair amount of walking, and while they are comfortable in terms of height, the ankle straps dug into the back of my ankles in quite a few places. Skin was cut/broken.
They look great but 1. need to be broken in so the leather softens and 2. probably shouldn't be worn for any type of moderate walking :( A week and a half later and I'm still suffering.

I have sent them back. Paid for postage and very unhappy with the ankle strap creating friction and the toe strap creating friction which will cause blisters. Not good and not comfortable. Style is lovely, and looks good on any size foot. But oh my what a disappointment to send them back.

Rated 3 out of 5 by nycjcrewlove Best Color Ever - Inconsistent Leather Texture
Fresh cream is such a wonderful color - LOVE.
I agree with the posts about ankle rub, and found the size 5 to be a half size large. My biggest issue is, after one wear (walking to and from the subway - .5 miles total) the right toe strap has stretched so much that my foot slides forward and my toes nearly reach the pavement in front of me. Really, really bummed as I've found Jcrew shoes to be of very high quality. The left shoe still fits, though.
Combined with the size issue, and ankle rub, I would not recommend.
