I bought these shoes and am generally very pleased! they are so comfortable and light. However I broke a couple of toes on my right foot this year (on some gym equipment, I was barefoot, literally, not a good idea...) anyway, these toes are slightly malformed now and rub in just about any shoe I wear. should I buy a 1/2 size larger to accommodate? If so, will they fit the rest of my foot? I already have a slightly narrow foot, so my heel doesn't stay in some shoes if I buy a bigger size. It's like I need a 1/2 size larger shoe for just the toes on my right foot
Some specialty running stores will allow you to mismatch sizes for an extra $20 or so, but it's probably not the best idea. My third toes on both feet point slightly outward, and so they rub in a number of my shoes. The answer is duct tape. Just cut a small piece to fit around the end of each toe, and it'll cut down on the rubbing and discomfort. Works for me anyway.
My suggestion would be for both of you to have shoes made for you!!! Than you and your feet will smile :)
