sorry, maybe I didn't describe it as well, even when wrinkling my toes I still touch the toe cap of the 7.5s, if I had my toes in a normal position and I was just barely touching/scraping the toe cap than I don't think it would be that much of a problem, yet I didn't even try them w/ thicker

I like the adjustability of the pump, the wide forefoot is great for my foot, though like any skate took a while to break in, even with heat molding.

Though I have no built up calicious on my foot, the liner is wearing at the top and the heel. This is a 9k issue with the antimicrob liner, and they've since ditched it in the 8 and 11ks. I'm fighting with rbk now to get something done about my skates.
well than perhaps the 8s will be fine, I'm a 9.5-10, so than the 8s might just do it *crossing fingers*

So I take it you have the older 9ks? I ordered the 2012 ones
