I feel the OP's pain and am happy the search function picked up this thread. Shoes felt great when I was trying them on. After a day that included some brisk walking on the street, however, they started to burn my little toe in the same spot as the OP. I usually wear a 12 D and Nordstrom sized me at a 11.5 D for the Park Aves. My guess is I needed a 11.5 E.
