Here is my previous post yesterday regarding a question about Alden Indy sizing
I went to a nearby store to try them on again. I only tried the 7.5D but not the 8D as they didn't have it in stock at the store I went to.
The ball of my foot near my pinky toe is between the first and second eyelet. You can see my foot pushing out from there. The ball of my foot near my big toe is above where the quarter meets the toe box area. The foot feels tight across the vamp, but I can move and wiggle all my toes completely. You can also see the slight creases on the vamp. Those were caused by me. Compared to last time, I tightened the shoe laces tight.
I'm wearing Darn Tough Full Cushion Boot Socks but I've also ordered their normal Cushion Socks. I have not tried their normal cushion socks with this size
I would love to order from The Shoe Mart, but I am going to be doing a preorder for the Innsbruck Indy, so I won't be able to return them. Any thoughts on 7.5D and 8D? I am leaning toward the 8D. Thank you!
I was curious, what are some signs of a shoe being too small? I apologize for these newbie questions, but I am new to quality shoes.
You're overthinking this. Go with the 8D.
