I ordered the scarlet color a few weeks before taking a leadership workshop and they were waiting for me when I returned home. The style and color fit my "inner leader" and energized that leader to be present and shine through. Very little break in time, super comfortable, and oh so cute. The color goes with almost everything in my work wardrobe and looks great with slim jeans, too. I used a moisture wicking shoe liner rather than socks and it works out well. Wear a 37 and ordered a 37.5 - fit is perfect.
