  1. When a shoe description states “Leather Upper” does that include the inside of the shoes?
    I realized the synthetic insides makes my feet smell… unpleasant.

    • Another Anon. :

      No, it only includes the upper part of the shoe – what you see on the outside and the back part of that portion on the inside, not the part where the bottom of your foot rests.

    • I really like Antonio Melani (Dillards house brand) for their leather-lined shoes. I have to size down in them by 1 or .5 size (1 size smaller for something I will wear with nylons and .5 for something I’ll wear with trouser socks or fleece footed tights) but they stretch very well (good leather) and have really great support even in higher heels. My favorite pair of pumps that just keeps going and looks super polished is their Glove Fit. Nice leather liner with support structure, in dress shoes – that’s a unicorn! Also, ladies with narrow heel + wide foot issues – you should give this brand a shot.
