I went back to the store and they gave me another pair and they feel much better! Though I'm sure they're sick of seeing me in that store, they were really helpful. Interestingly, the Walnut is quite dark:
Ok, back at this. AE swapped out a pair so now I've gone from 8E ---> 8D ---> 8.5D. They felt good in the store and I'm wearing them around the office carpet today to see how they'll fit and I'm noticing tightness in my left arch area. Will this go away or should I just give up?
This is the second time wearing new shoes. I got these as an exchange because my 8E was too loose. These are an 8D and there's a tremendous amount of pain in the tongue area.
Is this normal and should it go away?
I went on an AE chat and was told they might be defective but I don't see how.
Any feedback would be appreciated.
