I had the international nadia's and tried the ray rose. The nadia's fit well because they had a wider fore foot, but straps around the heel so that so don't slide out of the heel cup. Leather straps that are easy to break in. The was what I liked. Cons-the heel felt like it would move under me and I always felt my ankles rolled outward. When you put them flat on a table, you could see them lean outward. The ray rose fit almost the same way. Can't remember exactly the name of the shoe, but it has straps over the toes, heel cup, and an arch strap. The straps don't stretch as much because they are satin. This means they are harder to break in. That's a tiny con. BUT--the heel gives the best stability I've ever had!! I don't feel like I'm constantly on the verge of rolling my ankles.
