    I got two pairs of the same clarks from Zappos, half a size apart. One feels a bit tight, the other a bit loose. Will these shrink or stretch as I break them in?

    They won't shrink or stretch and if you have to choose between too tight and a tad large, go for the larger of the two pair or nothing at all.

    How tight are they? They will give a little over time, but not much. This is an unstructured shoe. The crepe sole tends to mold to your foot over time which contributes to increased comfort after a few wearings in my experience. Mine are a tad on the loose side in the toe box and feel great. This style of shoe simply doesn't wear as tightly as more structured shoes.
