Socks add some girth to your foot and can make the shoe fit and make the shoe more comfortable to wear. Stack your insoles. Use the Odor Eaters thin sole and place the Rothy's sole on top. The additional sole should make your Rothy's fit more snug.

In respect to this, will my Rothy's stretch?

I have 6 pairs of Rothy's and they do not stretch. Make sure you don't dry them as they will shrink. They are insanely comfortable and they have a removable sole so you can put inserts in if you need the support. If you purchase points, I recommend going up half to a full size more as the toe box is smaller.

Furthermore, are Rothy's really worth it? Rothy's are priced between $125 and $165. Yes, they're an investment, but I swear they're worth it. Rothy's also offers teachers 20 percent off select products, since they're such great shoes for the classroom.

Considering this, are Rothy's good for wide feet?

If you have wide feet, Tieks also advises going up a size. Some women go up a half size for the Rothy's Point style to allow more space around the toes. Rothy's says that their shoes do not stretch over time, so if they are snug, exchange them for a half size larger.

Are Rothy's actually comfortable?

They're comfortable, breathable, and flexible enough for wearing in the summer. Rothy's loafers aren't quite as supportive or comfortable as Everlane's Day Glove flats, so I wouldn't wear them if you're going on a really long walk — especially if you're in a city. However, I think they're perfect for office wear.

Should you size up in pointy toe shoes?

For pointy toed shoes, you may need to go up a 1/2 size (this also allows for extra room when your feet swell during PMS, air travel, etc.).
