The split toe is gorgeous. Live fit pics when you can, please.

 Coming from the school of "hard to fit", I totally understand your frustration. Took me three years to finally nail the right fit. If I may venture to guess, you have had a lot of time in sneakers and comfy shoes. That needs to be unlearned. Tight, as other posters have pointed out, is correct. For most lay people (that means 99% of shoe buyers), they will never buy a correct fitting shoe because it will feel too tight. Perhaps you might watch out for these indicators: 1....
Surprisingly versatile pair of shoes
A good fit is when all the air in the shoe goes woosh when you slip your feet in, and you feel the shoe hugging your feet like a glove. It will feel snug, especially at the back of the heel, but the paradox is that you wont feel like you are wearing a shoe at all. Definitely no heel slip.
Now this is just plain weird.
