Just bought a new pair of boots--Ariat Quickdraw. Was not looking to buy . .but I tried them on and they were immediately comfortable! Anyway, being Ariat--the sizing is all over the place.
I have a pair of Ariat Showbaby U-Turns. They are a 6.5. These Quickdraws are a 7.5!! (and I think my lace ups are a 5.5!) omigod. So . . . they are super comfy right now. BUT, how much will they stretch??? I hate, hate, hate a boot/shoe that is too big. I'd rather go too small, lol.
Do you think I should try the 7's again? When I put them on, my foot immediately hurt--they were not too small, but, apparently, I have a long arch and small heel so the support hit in the wrong spots in the 7.
I think I have the right size, but you know . ..all that money, I'd hate to wear 'em outside and then decided I should have got the smaller size!
Also, the internet says your toes should be touching the front of the boot--my toes are not and the store owner says they should be where they are---like an inch or more from the front?
