Hello all, I'm new here (though I've been browsing for a while prior to registering). I came here from mynudies.

I just got a pair of RD's, and I have a question about the shoe. It seems to be really long in the toe almost like some women's shoes. They fit everywhere but in the length of the foot, which is really long so my toe comes up probably about an inch short of the front of the shoe.

Are they supposed to fit this way? I really like the shoes, but I'm afraid I'll get some strange creasing on the top of the shoe or something.

It's this shoe

They do look a bit narrow. You shouldn't have 1" of clearance. Sometimes, your feet just don't fit into the shoes, just move on.

That's what I was planning to do. I'm bummed about it, though cause I got them for 60% off (sale and another 20% off discount code).

I'll probably just have to get another pair of Onitsuka Tigers.

your link is broken. I have a few pairs of dasslers and they all fit correctly; but some of his dressier shoes (like the fallo) are super long-to the point that one size down is still really long. The real question is: is it comfortable and does it look cool. If the answers are yes, then keep em. if they look silly or don't fit comfortably, toss em.

They were comfortable and looked cool, but I couldn't get over the fact that the toe was so long so I just returned them. The link was working before. Doesn't really matter at this point, though.

Thanks
