For someone who is very narrow footed, this shoe is ideal for me. That being said, women with wider feet I would DEFINITELY consider looking into something else. The shoe is very snug especially in the toe area. I really like the tight fit of the shoe, but if that is not what you're looking for I would keep looking. I'm not much of a runner, but I do work in the medical field and I'm on my feet a lot. This shoe gives me great support. This is also the first shoe I've worn where I can finish a 12 hour shift and have minimal foot pain. I typically wear a US size 7 and I definitely feel like I could've gone half a size bigger, so if you're concerned about the shoe size I would order a half size up. With that being said, it really is the perfect sneaker. The colors are vibrant and stylish. They aren't chunky and they don't add height. Definitely exceeded expectations.
