I understand that these shoes stretch, but can they over stretch to the point of being unwearable. I am size ten and I was thinking of getting a size nine, but I am hesitant because my roommate got these and went down a size and a half. It took him four months to stretch them out and I don't have that kind of time. I'm I being paranoid, or does my argument hold water.

They can stretch a ton, but they won't be unwearable if you get them tight to begin with. If you take the laces and run them through the ~2 cm of exposed lace on the side you can really crank these down, even when they stretch out a bunch. If worse comes to worse you can always wear thick socks with them.
