    I bought these BrooksBro Suede Moccasin

    With my size (8) - I couldn't even put my foot in, so I went to 8.5.
    When wearing thick workout sock, they still feel rather tight (as in not wide enough)

    Sales woman says they stretch. That true ? How much will such shoes stretch ?

    They will stretch, aprox a quarter of a size. If you need more, size up.

    Any moccasin constructed shoe I've had has stretched out in the forefoot (as have some others). If it's tight on your toes, don't worry. It'll form to your foot soon enough.

    But yeah, try them on with the socks you'll be wearing in them, and you shouldn't ever be wearing thick workout socks with those.

    Never, ever buy a shoe too small. The sock is the key to fit.

    You shouldn't be wearing thick socks with these and better yet, no socks at all. This is a summer shoe. Welcome to Styleforum.
