The AE Wilbert is a great shoe for doing a lot of walking...very comfortable, durable, and ruggedly handsome. What time of day did you visit the AE store and try on the Wilbert's? If it was early in your day and the shoes felt tight, you could indeed have a sizing problem. Your feet will swell as you walk about through your days and your shoes will seem tighter. While the sales person should know what they are doing, no one knows your feet...like you! You might call AE regarding alternative (slightly wider) sizes available. Good luck in your hunt!
