If the Pigalle 70 in size 37 didn't work for you, I think the Simple in 36 will be way too small.japskivt: it is the python black simple, size 6. I had patent pigalle 70 mm size 7 but they didn't stretch much due to the material, plus a narrow toe box. I never did try the sock trick though. I'm in love with black python but most are too expensive. I found a pair I can afford but they are a size 6. If they stretch considerabley then I might get them. My foot measures about 9.5 inches, and the seller states the insole in 9 1/3 inches - not much of a difference in size. Do you think they'd fit or am I just dreaming? I'm usually a true US 7, but I can fit sometiems into a US 6.5. I probably should have posted this into a different "fit" thread.
