Greetings SF'ers, This is my first post, although I am a frequent lurker. I hate making this thread, as I'm sure I'll be flamed, but my SF and Google searches on the topic of boat shoe fit have not helped me much. I bought my first pair of boat shoes yesterday (Sperry Top-Siders, in this color) and am unsure if I bought the right size. I bought a 10.5, and they are slightly loose throughout the shoe, although without much room to spare between my toes and the front of the shoe. I tried on a 10, but I can feel my toes touching the front of the shoe. It's not exactly uncomfortable, but I can definitely feel my toes against the leather when I'm standing in the 10s. Otherwise, I'd say the 10s feel much better throughout the rest of the shoe, as it's a more snug fit and there is no heel slippage when walking, as there is with the 10.5s (though only slightly). I should also add that I am wearing these shoes without socks, as they are intended to be worn. I understand that the leather will of course stretch somewhat over time as the shoes are broken in, leading me to believe that the 10.5s that I bought will only further loosen. I have only worn the shoes indoors. Should I exchange them for 10s? I guess the better question to ask is how should boat shoes fit? Rather snuggly, even if that means toes touching the front of the shoes? Or maybe I have the wrong idea altogether, and boat shoes are supposed to be a little loose and "sloppy", almost like a slipper? Thanks for helping out this boat shoe noob. I really like mine, but just want to make sure I get a properly fitting pair.
