Personally I would just size up and throw in an insole. I had to buy my GTs true to size because of how narrow they are and although they're a bit long they fit great once I throw in my insoles.
Hmm...thanks for the input George.
I may contact my local Red Wing store to see if they have an industrial machine that can stretch out their boots.
If not....anyone looking for a black, 8.5 GT?
