kgmessier, neither the 7.5 or the 8 is giving me any slippage. I could wear either size and they feel perfect, except the 8 just feels a tiny bit more relaxed than the 7.5 and also a bit longer in length. I'm assuming that the leather will eventually stretch after the usual break in, and the 7.5 will feel just as relaxed as the size 8 no? and then if the size 8 were to be broken in, it'll start to become more loose as it gets softer. Based on that, im leaning towards the 7.5, what do you think EDIT: Is it better to wear them snug? this is my first pair of boots I've ever owned. Also I don't want to look short and stumpy since im 5' 7" with an athletic build.... the 7.5 is very very slightly shorter in length and size than the 8, so that'll help me out. So 7.5 is a better pick right? I just need some reassurance since this is probably the most expensive shoe I've ever purchased
