Dress Shoes are Tight! Yeesh!

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
these just arrived in the mail today

http://www.zappos.com/n/p/p/109565/c/3938.html

i am a 8 1/2 EE and they fit exactly to that measurement which is the problem

with my brooks running shoes it's ok to wear my exact size because the material is really soft and stretches. leather doesnt exactly fit that description. they were air-tight. what do you call that thing that wedges your foot in? i needed one of those badly, i broke out a sweat just getting them on. at least the width was perfect

so i'm returning them tommorow for 9s which hopefully won't end up too long. had no clue you'd have to adjust the size of shoe depending on the material it's made out of

know what i mean?

or, you could return them and buy a higher quality pair of shoes. that sounds like a better option.

there aren't a whole lot of shoes that have my size which will be 8 1/2 - 9 EE for under $100 if you can find dozens you're more than welcomed to post the links here

This is what I'd do.

Running shoes size up a whole (or sometimes just a half) size larger than your dress shoes. Don't try to buy dress shoes based on your running shoe size; they'll be too small.
