    I think womens ran narrower as well but not 100% sure on that.

    i go pretty rough on my dawgz but did the one thing to my new CP's that I was trying to avoid. Gross, but get blood on the "Achilles heel". Alas the left shoe has blood as it's a half size smaller than the right (causes ever so slight slippage/friction as opposed to the snugger right foot). I've been wearing them with no show socks (that don't do a good job covering the heel) out, and sometimes barefoot around the house and running quick errands.

    I can never wear shoes sockless, especially sneakers, even if it is just around the house.

    Strange, I like my shoes snug and have never got blisters from them.
    Shoes should not hurt or give blisters. Ever. Not on the first day or the 100th. The whole "breaking in" concept is a shoe salesman spiel to sell a shoe that does not fit. If people get blisters or are hurting from their shoes, it's not the right size - in most likelihood a foot width issue. The problem with sneakers though is that there is only one width available (unlike dress shoes) so someone with a narrow or wide foot has to settle on the best possible size, in the wrong width. Which entails pain until the leather gets stretched and deformed to the point where the shoe ends up fitting.

    well, some cordovan boots and shoes have a breaking in period but not due to size. but the idea of buying sneakers that don't fit when sneakers are the ultimate in functional footwear is pretty ridiculous, meta even

    Are female MMM GAT reissue sneakers the same shape/shoe as the male ones but just come in smaller sizes?

    On the Eboutique the GATs in the women section are on sale from like size 35 -41 ( wear size 40 generaly) but the male ones are not which come in size 39-47 or something.

    Would the size 40 in the female section essentially be the same shoe as the size 40 in the male section?


    as far as i know womens sizing stops at eu41/US11 (mens US8, eu41) so if you wear a 41 or smaller you can just get the same eu size

    HOLY FUCKING SHIT. YOU JUST BLEW MY MIND.
    I just did a bit of research and it looks like EU sizes apply consistently to both men and women. Whereas US sizes don't (e.g. US-men-9 = US-women-10.5).

    I generally wear EU41 (CP40). Will order the women EU41 right now..

    My girlfriend has a pair of the green high tops. They seem to be exactly the same as the men's but tinier. When I saw them out of the box they looked like children's shoes. I really want to see some first graders bumping around in MMM hi tops playing tag.
