I bought 2 colours - pink for my daughter and white for me. we have the same size, so I can compare them. I have a bunion on the right foot. And yes, as some reviewers said, there is a seam in the fornt of shoe. But I don't feel the seam in the white trainers - the leather is very soft. I paid special attention on the seam, and I can say that the white trainers fit me very well. The pink ones maybe have a harder leather - so the seam is feeled much more. I tried to lace up the pink shoes slightly loosely - and the "seam feeling" dissapeared. And I think the trainers will stretch a little. In any case the pink ones are for my daughter, and there was only a test from me)) The white shoes do not have such problem as I have mentioned above. But there seems that the shoes are a bit on a big side. There is enough room for a thick cotton sock. I tried them in a thin polyamid sock, maybe everything is OK with the size. I believe that a smaller size will be really small. Or maybe the are slightly wider? The insole is not removable, so I cannot tell how precise were my efforts to measure it - but I measured 25.5 cm and LE shoes in size 6.5 UK usually are exactly this length.
