Comments: Tried this shoe in 3 different sizes (had to wait to send back/receive each one in mail...annoying!). Ultimately, the sizing was just "off"...I'm usually a 10.5/11. The 10.5/11/11.5 were all too snug in the toe box. Not in the roominess dept., but rather, in the overall length of the shoe. My 2nd toe was rubbing in all 3 different sizes of the shoe...it's almost as if the .5 size increments are really measured out as .25 size increases? Either way, I tried very hard (and patiently waiting for shipments/resending), but these shoes just aren't going to work for me. I hope others have better luck with sizing.
