THE RIGHT SHOE
Don’t buy shoes that are too tight. If you’re at the point where you’re hoping they will stretch to be comfortable, they probably won’t. It’s true that soft leather and suede give slightly, moulding to your foot, but they will not dramatically increase in width or length. There’s a difference between a "snug", comfortable fit and a "tight", uncomfortable fit. A few laps in the store should help you decide how you feel.
