Bought some new boots last night
Lovely pair.

Size 11E.

They're the same size, in length, as my regular shoes are (10.5W)

However, there's an extra inch of space in the toes in the boots and they slide on my feet. (of course, boots fit differently than shoes too.)

They were the only pair left, for $40 (60% off), look great on me, don't have any brand names vislble on them, and otherwise fit great.

Should I see if I can find another Petters Warehouse to find an exchange, or ball up half a sock to stick in the front?

Thx!

1. Shoes that don't fit are no bargain.
It doesn't matter much you "saved." Expect blisters.

5. Agree with this---buying the wrong size for a deal will just irritate you.

But Hypno's are larger, so would he still get blisters in that case?

6. ANd they're not larger by much...
And it's still goofy because my main pair of shoes is the same dimensions. :crazy: Maybe they have more padding on the inside... :shrug:

2. Are they made for walkin'?
In honor of the Nancy Sinatra thread.

3. Would it be the 1st time you used a sock for stuffing?
Just asking. ;-)

4. Yes it would, actually. I could say more, but it might be perceived as
TMI.

:evilgrin:

I've never stuffed anything before. Don't need to. O8)
