Speed and Strength Women's Wicked Garden Shoes
Would not recommend
I was disappointed when these shoes arrived. My first impression was that they look like sneakers that a teenage boy would wear. They are not at all feminine or even scaled for a woman's foot. They were slightly large on me, but I was wearing thick socks at the time. After riding in them once, they went into the Goodwill pile. Not only are the shoes too thick for me to be comfortable riding in them, the soles are soft and have no grip. In my opinion you'd be better off buying a cheap pair of hiking boots than these shoes.

Easy to ride and shift in and surprisingly comfortable.

Great shoe for the money.
No problem getting the right size. Shipment was very fast and the shoe fit as expected.

These riding shoes are great. I ordered a size down based on other's reviews of the shoes running big. I got a size 9 and they fit perfectly. I have a wide foot, so there was so issue of them being overly roomy. They seem like they will protect well and are very comfortable. I've been wearing them to commute to work and these are the perfect shoes for hopping off the bike and being able to go about my day without bringing another pair of shoes to work. They look really sweet, I just love the way they look like sneakers. Also its been really hot here for a few days and they felt just fine riding in the heat.

Sizing Runs Large
Men, you're in luck! These are advertised as womens shoes but in actuality they MIGHT be mens. See attached pictures. The box states they are womens but the tongue of the shoe states they are mens. Confused? So am I!
To give you an idea of sizing, I wear a size 6 in Sperry Top-Siders and the Wicked Garden Shoes are about a good half size too big. I do not have narrow feet and these are wide. This DOES NOT necessarily mean it's true mens sizing but they're definitely too big for a womens size 6.
Since I cannot purchase a smaller size (they only go down to 6), I will wear thick socks to compensate for the spaciousness because I like the look.

Not a fair review seeing I have no miles on these bad boys yet but I figured it would be good to give my first impression out of the box.
The size is slightly larger. I wear a womens 9.5 and have narrow feet. I ordered the the 9 in black as most womens riding shoes run large. The size works perfect, width is extra roomy. I would think for even average feet it still may be wide. The shoe is fairly light, the rubber sole is THICK and HEAVY DUTY making them look "chunky" from the box but not that bad when on and with a relaxed pair of pants. Still, for a women's shoe thy could have made them somewhat more "sleek". The shoe comes up HIGH on me, will need to consider taller socks to avoide friction points.
I found toe fatigue to be a issue in my old boots on my shifting foot. This appears to have a well enforced upper toe area along with a stiff sole which I hope cuts down on the flex of the shoe.
For the price point I think these are spot on. Ideal for my work commute in the city.
