    All, I just purchased a pair of Cole Haan Harrison cap toes, very nice price of $99 for a goodyear welted calf leather shoe. that said, I'm curious about the fit. The toe is on the pointy side, so my largest toe is about an inch from the end. I have a bit of heal slip, but nothing excessive. Will these break in a bit, then fit better? Or should I go with the next half size down. given that they are a bit pointy, i think they may be bordering on clown shoeish, if you know what i mean. Thank for the help! Best regards!

    They won't get any smaller; heel slip now will be heel slip later, perhaps even more so. If the rest of the shoe fits well, there are stick-on heel pads that will at least lessen the slippage. The problem with pointy toe shoes is that you really need pointy toes to wear them. If returning the shoes is an option, I would think about getting a shoe with a less pointy toe and a heel that fits. The main thing about heel slippage is that with even moderate walking, blisters are almost a certainty!
