"Maiden voyage" indeed... about 10+ hours on foot, first wear. Very comfortable (more on this later).
Sorry for a horrible photo but after a long dayand it was the only time I remembered to snap a shot. Shoe is barely visible =\
Regarding the heel, I now understand how some say Carmina heel fits a bit loose. I don't mind it, really. Questions is should I use shoe trees in respect to the shoe size or size down one? Will it stretch out the shoe even more?
