Had a similar classic type in the past and loved it so much I ordered four pair of these. Size 40 women's fell off. Size 39 cut off my blood circulation. I didn't return them in time so I'm stuck with four pair of very expensive shoes I can't wear. I thought about buying men's size 39 to get an more i between size. But I don't like the over all design. I don't like that hard rubber back. It is very uncomfortable, stiff, and the cinch in the back flips flops around and looked tacky with a dress. I love my Aliza loops though. But I still need a minimal sole I can wear with dresses and walking on concrete and grass. I want something that looks nice but is tough. I like Aliza loop non skid sole better too. This sole slips on wet smooth surfaces and makes me fall. You can feel rocks through it too. I only wear Vibram five fingers. Nothing else. They need to get this right. Don't like weird experimental designs. Let us keep what looks nice and works.
