I really wanted a pair of sandals that sold out in my size 7. There is a size 7 1/2 though that I can still get. Does anyone think that a 1/2 size larger makes a big difference? I am thinking I will have maybe to much of the sandal showing in the back which would be noticable with them being sandals. I searched everywhere online and I can find it nowhere else to buy. I hate to buy and then have to spend the $6.95 if they do not fit.
Speaking from my experience - yes it makes a big difference.
I recently lost a 1/2 size in my shoes and the extra length on the sandals catches my pant legs a lot. I actually try to size down in my sandals to avoid that.
Everybody has different feet though and wears shoes differently so maybe it wouldn't make a difference for you.
Speaking personally, yes -- for me it would. I wear 6.5, but if I am trying on shoes and all they have is a 7, it's always too big.
I recently checked out shoe sizes while trying to find a pair of shoes for my mother who is in a nursing home. A foot measuring 9 and 5/16" is a size 7 and a 7 1/2 is 9 and 1/2". Not much of a difference. I usually wear a 6 1/2 but have often found that a 7 is okay. I think it would depend on the structure of the shoe - a slip on might be too large, but a strappy sandal might be just fine. If you really love them, I guess you have to risk paying to return. Have you checked other online shoe stores to see if they have your size?
I'm a size 7.5 and whenever a shoe is only available in whole sizes, it never fits me (larger or smaller).
I recently bought two pairs of shoes, both the same style, just different colors. One was my regular size the other, because they didn't have my size in the color I wanted, was one full size larger. I can't tell the difference. A pedorthist once told me there is 1/16th of an inch between sizes. A half size should not make a big difference.
thanks everyone. I think I will wait and see if my size comes back as everytime I go back and check there are more sizes popping up. Of course every size but mine so far.
