Wide and so comfortable! Great casual strolling the town kind of shoes. Just wish it doesn’t fray much.
I love this shoe, and wanted it to fit, but it just felt too short when I tried it on in the house. I even wore them around the house off and on, to make sure I wasn't imagining it. Finally, realized the way to figure it out was to take one of my other pairs of Vivobarefoot shoes and hold them up to each other, and this one was definitely shorter, even though the size was the same on both, 38, so I had to send them back. I'm sorry, I wish they had fit.
