I received these shoes in the mail one day ago. I haven't had much chance to test them yet, but they are extremely comfortable. They are exactly as pictured on the website. My objective is to have a comfortable and cute pair of shoes that also won't get ruined in rain. My plan is to wear these when traveling - an upcoming trip to NYC will be a good test since we tend to walk everywhere, and we might have rain. If they pass this test, I'll be taking them on a trip to Italy, which will again involve a lot of walking and possibly rain. These shoes are attractive and comfortable enough that they can be worn everywhere, even into a nice-casual restaurant.
