So I haven't yet worn my PTB's outside (even though I bought them months ago) because I'm still unsure of the sizing. Maybe this last is simply not for me, as I feel like I'm smack in between sizes, with the 8.5 being too tight and the 9 being a tad too loose (I have the 9). I may ultimately keep them bec I truly love them and I'm hoping that as my feet settle in to the footbed the slippage will diminish.

One other thing:
I noticed this right when I got these but only now is it bothering me. It seems the leather bulges a bit, right where the toe counter ends. It almost looks like it's caused by a pinky toe bulging out, but my pinky toe is not pressing up against it. In addition I've worn these shoes maybe 15 minutes total (collective of all try-ons) so even if I was pressing I don't think it could cause that type of bulge.

Here's a photo:



Is this normal? Or something that I am correct to be bothered by?

Thanks in advance for your feedback.

Didn't notice that until you mentioned it, but I would be bothered by it too.

Any thing I can do about it?  I ordered them over the phone from the Madison Ave store quite a few months ago.

Yes, wear them and enjoy them...

I guess that's one route I can take (my sizing issue notwithstanding)...

 

Any other opinions out there?

I think that once you wear them, the shell rolls will probably take over that area anyway.

I wear my Marlow's with tongue pads. That may help with the loose fit for you.

It looks to me, like they are too tight though.

Thanks. In what way do they look too tight?

In width.  The bulge (for lack of a better word) at the widest point of the shoe.  It could be an optical illusion though!

It's not an optical illusion. There really is a bulge. However, as per my post, that came with the shoes. My foot is not pressing up against that area of the shoe. And the shoe is a bit loose overall. In addition I have barely worn these shoes. And finally the photo was taken with the shoe off.

If you re-read my original post I think you will understand my concern. Thanks again for your input!

Oops, I thought you were talking about the indent on the vamp of the shoe. Sorry for the confusion, and please disregard my comment above.  I would return the shoes, especially since you paid retail price.

 

Note to self:  Do not post comments before having my tea in the morning!

It would bother me, especially if the other shoe looks fine.  Perhaps you could contact C&J in UK directly.  They might offer to fix the shoes, but you will probably have to pay the shipping.

Do you have a salesperson you work with? Either way, I would contact someone at RL and see what they can do. If you have only worn them once this should be obvious upon inspection, and unless you have exceptionally wide feet this looks like a defect. I would not be happy with shoes that look like this.
