Weird-ass fit

The fit of this sneaker is all over the place. Although some found this sneaker to be true to size, reviews also suggested that it is too narrow around the toes. Concurrently, there are also comments indicating that it runs big in the heel, which resulted in heel slippages. “They slide off my heels,” one claimed.
