I was really excited based on a previous comment that I might be able to fit in this shoe. I don't think it runs long. It felt shorter than I expected even pulling it out of the box. I needed it to run long to fit, since I'm probably a 14 1/2. I'm disappointed because I was hoping to wear a woman's sneaker again after over 20 years. Plus, it was red and would have been fun to wear. I didn't inspect it closely after I realized it wouldn't fit, so I can't speak well to other issues.
