I am usually a size 5 in US womens. Since 5.5 was the smallest available that is what I chose.
I expected the worse and was pleasantly surprised. The shoes seem to be very well made. They sole was my main concern but they are actually pretty comfortable from the bottom.
They look exactly as pictured. One complaint is that the laces don't tie very well since they are the rounded laces but that can be easily fixed by switching out the laces. My last complaint is that the ankle area seems pretty tight when tying the laces.
