I bought these Ferragamo boots at a boxing week sale for $199 Canadian, which I think was a great deal. They feel good and are a size 10, which is my normal size. However, they are very long and narrow, and I can't help thinking they are too big for me.

I have never owned narrow shoes or boots like this, so maybe the fit is normal, but there is about 2 1/4 inches between my toe and the end of the boot. I've marked my toe with a bit of tape in the pix below, and would appreciate any feedback regarding the fit of these boots. All sales were final, so returning them is not an option.

Cheers,

Andrew

Thanks for the quick replies. They feel fine when I'm walking, and my foot doesn't move inside, even with my thinnest socks. They look okay to me from above, but when I look at my profile in a mirror they seem really long, almost clownish.

Maybe I'm worrying too much, because they aren't much longer than some of my other shoes pictured below. In fact they are a tiny bit shorter than my size 42 Canalis, and a bit longer than my 9AUS RM's which are too tight in the toe. Shoe sizes drive me nuts and don't seem to make any sense most of the time. I don't know how anyone can order shoes online.

Probably the best thing to do is just to try on a smaller size and see how it fits.
Thanks for the advice. Even with them unzipped I can't move my foot forward much, maybe one finger at the most. There is certainly room in front of my toe, but the widest part of my foot matches the widest part of the boot almost perfectly. They are also pretty tight across my instep, which prevents my foot moving forward.

Unfortunately, they only had two pairs left, 10 and 10 1/2, so I couldn't try on any smaller sizes. The purchase was a bit of an impulse buy, because it was the only size 10 left, and they are beautiful boots at a good price. I don't know what they would normally sell for, but I don't think I've ever seen Ferragamos like this for much less than $500CAD.
