So I'm trying on the made to fit shoes in 7D and 6.5D and looking for some suggestions. In both cases I get some heel slippage. There's also a gap you can see on the outside. The 7 fits perfect in the front of the foot width-wise, while the 6.5 is tighter, but I wouldn't say painfully tight at all. In each of the 2nd pictures I'm pushing my toe up to show where it lands. According to the shoe fit guide I fall at about the 6.5, maybe a tad over and in the middle of the W6 width section. I generally wear 7 in most dress shoes, but plan to wear these with no socks/no-show socks. For this first Rancourt order, I'm looking for some version of a ranger moc. Should I be concerned about the side gap in that type of shoe? I also know CXL tends to stretch, but I also don't want the shoe to look 'deformed' by stretching its width. I may have answered my own question with all signs pointing to 6.5D. Overall I guess I'm wondering if I simply go with the 6.5D or up a width to 6.5E due to the slight tightness in the front sides of the shoe.
