I'm curious to know what sort of spacing you all prefer in your shoes for comfort and mobility.

How much slack do you prefer in your shoes/boots, between your toes and the end of the toe cap?

Do you find that you like it really tight with only a smidge of space, or with some breathing room (e.g. 1/8", 1/4", etc.)?

Thanks for sharing!

Shoes should fit their owner comfortably - being a combination of last and your feet. There is no measurement to define this.

There's not really an answer because your toes don't go to the end of some shoes. The question is whether the ball and arch of your foot fit the shoe and your foot doesn't slide around. If anything, sliding your foot to the front wpull give you an indication of sizing and your foot is placed where it wpdbe at the end and isn't affected by the shape of the narrow lasts
