    I'm between half sizes of Chippewa GQs.

    I figure leather stretches out with time so slightly tight when brand new is OK.

    But then I read that toeboxes will NOT stretch and I SHOULD have some heel slippage when brand new.

    So: for leather workboots, is it better to have them smaller or larger right out of the box?
