I bought a new pair of VFF today.. the Jaya LR, in a size 39. I am worried about the fit. I have a pair of Sprints in size 40. I originally bought my Sprints in a 39 and they felt too tight, so I exchanged for 40. Because of the strap system, I was able to tighten them and get a good fit. When I tried the Jaya on in the store, the 40's felt too big, so I ordered a 39. (I ordered online to get the color I wanted) I know these need to fit a little tighter because they don't have a strap system to tighten or loosen, but I am not used to the tightness on my toes. On my left foot, which is larger, the toes feel tight, they are touching the end of the toe pockets. If I go down a size, I am afraid the shoe will slip of the heel on my smaller right foot.
So how do your VFF's fit? Have I just gotten used to a loose fitting Sprint? Do your toes smush the ends of the pockets? Will I get used to the tighter feeling? I am currently wearing them around the house with the tags still on. I am afraid to cut the tags and wear them outside.
UPDATE Thanks for all the feedback. My gut was telling me they were just plain too small but my impatient side didn't want to deal with returning/exchanging. I ended up going back to the store to try some different sizes, the larger Jaya slipped way to much on my heel and that style has no way to tighten it. They had Classics for $60. I bought them in the 40 and they feel great. Thanks again for the fitting tips. :)
