I got 9s, and I've never gone below 10 before. The 9s fit great (and these were structured leather shoes, not stretchy canvas sneakers).
Dude you weren't kidding... i received the 7s today and they're both only a half size smaller for a full size down, wtf? These things are narrow as hell too! The PF Flyers are roomier but i like the looks of the chucks better. Maybe they'll stretch out a bit after a bit of wear... i hope.
***ok now actually wearing a pair for a little bit tonight that feel right size wise... they hurt my feet a bit. People werent kidding when they said there is NO support. The PF Flyers have more than this and i didnt think it would be noticable difference, but it is. Now i'm wondering if i should keep these in a size 7 or go back to the 8s and put some sort of inserts in them? What do most of you do as far as that goes?
