Some say Steve Madden shoes come up small but on me, the size I got was a perfect fit. I can usually wear size UK 3, 3 1/2 or 4 depending on the style of shoe but with these I got a size 3 and they are really comfortable on. It is slightly cushioned inside for extra comfort. They are brighter than the image shown on the website. The picture makes them look like a deep red/wine colour which is what I wanted but in fact they're a pure red colour almost near lipstick red. I'm keeping them cz I got them at a bargain for a price and need a new pair of red staple heels!
