I really like these, but, I too dislike buying shoes over the internet unless it is a brand and style I know. I have wide, short feet and usually have to go half size up to get the width. The last batch fit me great.

Unfortunately, these are all new, so ordering the same size probably wont work.

My question for those of you who have a pair already, how wide do these shoes run and what is the sole and heel material like?

My old ones had soles that were hard and waxy feeling, but, wore out very quickly. The heels were a soft rubber that liked to crumble and fall off in chunks (after I glued them back on).

I know he has fixed all the construction issues of the old ones, I'd just like to know how the sole material will hold up before considering buying.
