I agree with the other review. Exact same thing happened to me. I first ordered an 8.5 but had to return them because they were a bit too big and flopped in the heel. I spent the return fee and exchanged for an 8 as I needed a grey shoe for work and these are definitely very cute. However, even with a thin trouser sock, they dug in the top of my foot at the opening by the pleats. I kept them on for work but took them off under my desk and while driving. So looks like I am out $14 on the return shipping but the shoe is way too expensive not to return.
Rated 3 out of 5 by The Real Mimi Issue with the upper portion of the shoe
This shoe would be perfect for the office to wear with either pants or a dress. The shoe was a good fit in both the width and the foot bed and I really liked the detail on the top. As soon as I received them, I decided to wear them to work the very next day. I only had them on for 5 minutes when the upper oval part of the shoe started to cut into my instep. By the time I went out to my car, it had become very painful and I had to immediately go back in the house and take them off. In the 5 minutes that I wore them, both shoes had left a deep oval impression on the top of both of my feet. I do have a high arch to my foot, yet, I've never had this happen before with a shoe that was extremely comfortable everywhere else. I would not recommend them to anyone who also has a high arch and instep, as I do. I had to unfortunately return them.
