I want some short Harness Boots, so I tried the taller ones on @ Nordstrom because they do't carry the shorts. I went one whole size smaller than usual and the fit was kind of weird. can someone enlighten me as to what to exect fit-wise and if/how/when they 'break in'? The SA said they should be slightly hard to get on and then your foot should just 'pop' in. He said they should be snug in the toe but loose in the heel. . . this feels SO weird to me! LOL! I usually wear a 7.5 or an 8 so we tried the 7.5s, they slipped so bad it felt like I was walking out of them. The 7's fit but the toes were really snug, almost uncomfortable and the heel was still loose What's up? I want these SOOOO bad! Fryedaze! Where are you!?
