Very pointy toed shoes

  1. I bought a pair of kitten heel shoes yesterday from Aldo (anyone ever hear of that shoe store?) and they are extremely pointy toed.

    I usually wear a size 8-but had to get a 9 in these and I think it is because of the pointy-ness. Anyone else have this problem?
  2. I tend to wear more pointy toed shoes due to my height. I used to think I was a true 10, but as I've ventured into the shoe arena I've learned that some shoes I need a 9.5 or 10. For the most part depending on the brand, a 10 works for pointy toed shoes and everything else is a 9.5.
