Back in august (way before i knew about tpf), I had purchased a pair of fifi's and got bitten by the CL bug that made me want to expand my collection as soon as I could. I went half a size down on those and they fit very comfortably, so on eBay when i saw these python rolando's half a size down I jumped right to it without a second thought and then they were mine. BIG MISTAKE - Even after getting them stretched at a cobbler I tried to slip my right foot into the shoe and my second to last toe can't stay in for more than 10 seconds without a sharp pain searing throughout my damn foot. Should I try my best to make due with them, or should i cut my losses and look for another exotic? Thanks for your time !
