    Hi,

    I purchased a pair of natural chrome excell boots in size 9 1/2D. (These are the plain toe model without the white stitching)

    I usually wear 10D (sometimes a 9 1/2) but based on the last, I went down a half size. I received them yesterday and put them on in the evening. The fit seemed good overall, my concern is with the area over the big toe, as it seems a bit tight. Will this stretch over time? Or should I send them back and get the larger size, I worried in the larger size, my foot will float in the boot. Not sure what to do.

    ‚ÄčIn the meantime, I will wear them about the house and see how things shape up.

    Thanks,

    frederic

    The leather will stretch. However, it also depends on what socks you were wearing. If you plan on wearing thicker socks, but the boots were tight with thin socks, then you might want to size up.

    Yes, good point about the socks. I had slightly thicker socks (bottom slightly thicker) initially. Today, I tried them on with lighter wool dress socks. Still tight, but better. I think you're right, they will stretch out though. I just want to be close to certain:)
