Today I finally received my Guess "Carrie" pumps. Does anyone here have experience with this style? While they're absolutely beautiful, I'm not sure if they're going to work out. I ordered them in my usual size (9), and they pinch quite bit at the little toe. I rarely have to go up a 1/2 size, even in pumps, but I haven't bought a pair of 4" pointy toe pumps in ages. There's no way to tell how these normally fit from the Zappo's reviews. Some say to go up a 1/2 size. Others suggest going DOWN a 1/2 size (or even a whole size)! Some people say they tend to fit snug when new, but they stretch out over time. I'd call what I'm experiencing a bit more than "snug." My toe box area is a bit wide, but I'm not sure going up 1/2 size would even help. If the shoe is too large, won't my toes just slide down into the pointy area anyway?
