Will soft crackled-patent leather stretch?

  1. Hi Everyone,

    I have my eye on these Coach driving moccasins that i've put on hold in a local store:


    But can't decide on the size!

    Does crackled patent leather stretch??? The shoes are quite soft and comfortably squishy. The 8.5's are fine length-wise, but the toe box is a little snug on the sides. The 9's are totally comfortable, and fit just a little loose like slippers. I'd normally get the 9's, but am a little afraid that they might stretch out too much. Then again, I don't like "breaking in" shoes anymore, b/c it just tends to give me foot problems.

    Please advise, and thanks in advance!
  2. Patent leather, notoriously, Never stretches. Order the bigger size!
