I originally tried these cute mint wedges on in-store and found the ankle openings to be too big. I was so sad because I had planned on adding them to my closet! I decided to order a brand new, unworn pair from online and see if they were any smaller in the ankle, and they were! YAY! The pair I tried on in-store probably had been tried on a million times carelessly and I'm guessing that's how they got so stretched out. Also, just an FYI, I usually wear an 8.5 or 9 in shoes, and in these I took an 8, so beware...they may run big on you! Can't wait to wear them!
