The thing is size 7 is pretty much the smallest size I can go. There's little to no space between my heel and the heel of the shoe when I push my foot all the way in. I'm going to try 7E next, if that doesn't work out, EE, or would you recommend me going straight for the EE?
+1 to this. I've found that going down a size and up a width has a noticeable impact on width, but it doesn't impact the length much. I'd go into a store and try on the 6.5E and the 7E.
