I should know better, and really I do, BUT I bought a pair of Tory Burch boots from Neiman Marcus Last call for $400. Thing is they only had a 9.5 which felt fine in the store. I came home and tried them on and they seem a little snug, maybe they will stretch?? I think a 10 or 10.5 would fit better. Generally I buy size 10s to 10.5s depending on the brand. I searched and googled, and searched and googled and other than ebay which has sizes waaaay too small the only pair of the same boots I can find online are at bloomingdales for slightly less in a size 11. Am I stupid for thinking about getting the 11 or making the 9,5 work. Help lol, I am so close up and can't see the forest for the trees. I really love these boots and can't get them out of my mind.
