I once bought a pair of RL Alligators shoes at 70% off! Truly a fantastic deal, literally a steal. They were beautiful. Unfortunately, they were a size 12 and I'm a size 11. I tried shoe tongues, two pair of socks, etc. Nothing worked. They were just too loose and hence uncomfortable and ultimately unwearable.
I had bought the "Bargain" and in this case a beautiful shoe too. But I regretted it and gave them away. This was pre-Ebay days.
I strongly recommend that you not buy any shoes that are a full size off!
