So I bought two sizes of Sperry A/O and I plan to return the pair that doesn't fit. One is an 8 and the other is an 8.5. I know the sperry leather stretches and all but i'm still unsure.
The 8 feels good and fits like a glove. My little toe is also pushing through the shoe on my right foot(i believe it's a little bit bigger than left foot) because it's too narrow but only for that toe. There is barely any room from longest toe to front of shoe.
The 8.5 feels a little bit bigger and more roomy of course. It fits my little toe fine as well and there is a thumbs width from longest toe to front end of shoe. Also there is some heel slipping here but i believe that's due to the sole being new and stiff.
So basically, should i plan on the 8 stretching to fit my feet and risking the chance of it not stretching enough to fit them. Or should I get the 8.5, which are a little bit loose but fit my toes well and risking the chance of them stretching a lot later on so they will be flopping all over the place on my feet?
